    My wife was able to teach at CPS before we moved inte the city and that's how she had to do it then. (She isn't teaching in CPS anymore, though. Job sucked.)

    For elected office, they have to be a resident for 1 year prior to the election.
    Gotcha. I do wonder how residency would be determined, exactly.

    I think it's all moot anyway. I see the SC overturning the judgement based on their actions today. Not sure what they're opinion will state, since the law seems fairly clear with very specific exemptions for which Rahm doesn't appear to qualify.
    It'll be interesting to see their reasoning.

    Re: Court orders Emanuel off mayoral ballot

    Do we really need all this right wing snobbery? Its not a victory for conservatives over liberals its a victory for the rule of law, something we should all be able to agree on. This isn't a left wing conspiracy to skirt the law, stop trying to pretend this was some kind of national left wing plan which all self described liberals share responsibility for or somehow means anything against any policy a liberal would support. How many liberals outside of Chicago do you think actually knew about this law? Or heck how many liberals inside of Chicago, or how many of his supporters? Hell, how many conservatives inside or outside of Chicago knew about this law?

    I'm guessing many will state, I KNEW IT WAS LIKE THAT ALL ALONG!!! Yet for whatever reason this specific criticism of Rahm campaign didn't surface until after the news story broke.

    Whew. Almost thought a requirement will get in the way of an ex-Obama staffer from getting what he wants. Close one!
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Nothing so dramatic. It's just straight corruption - and this IS Chicago after all.

    I don't know if anyone posted this, but he was reinstated on the Ballot. This should serve as an example of just how corrupt Chicago politics really is. Just the fact he rented his primary residence out to someone else shows he didn't intend to maintain his residency. Obama didn't rent his home as far as I know. Anybody know where Rahm was living in D.C. did he rent or was he staying in the White House storage room in the basement? If he had brought a car to D.C. he would have been required to re register it within 30 or 60 days.
