    Emanuel Removed From Chicago Ballot

    CHICAGO—An appeals court said Rahm Emanuel is not allowed to stay on Chicago's mayoral ballot, a blow to the former White House chief of staff who has already raised more than $10 million in his bid for mayor.
    To the Dems - I remember how much you went after Republicans who did not meet residency requirements. Let's see how consistent you are now.

    Also, what's Rahm going to do with that 10 million? He had better return it.

    Finally, good decision. If you don't live where you are running, then you don't get to run. End. Of. Discussion.

    We'll get lip service, at most.

    I think Rahm will easily be taken back into the fold for Obama's re-election plans and will join the rest of his merry band of men already leaving the WH to work on the 2012 re-election bid. The 10 mil? What 10 mil?

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.

    No skin off my back. If you don't follow the rules then you shouldn't be allowed to run.

    It was the only decision they could have made. If they allowed Rahm to run for Mayor, based only on the fact that he owned property and "intended" to return, it would have made a mess of thousands of other individual's that lost their jobs with the city due to not living in Chicago. Many of those people lived in the suburbs, but owned property in the city that they rented out.

    Court orders Emanuel off mayoral ballot

    Rahm Emanuel should not appear on the Feb. 22 mayoral ballot, according to a ruling issued by a state appellate court today.

    In a 2-1 ruling, the appellate panel said Emanuel does not meet the residency requirement of having lived in Chicago for a year prior to the election. The judges reversed a decision by the Chicago Board of Election Commissioners, which had unanimously agreed that Emanuel was eligible to run for mayor. (Read the ruling here.)

    "We conclude that the candidate neither meets the Municipal Code's requirement that he have 'resided in' Chicago for the year preceding the election in which he seeks to participate nor falls within any exception to the requirement," the majority judges wrote.

    "Accordingly, we disagree with the Board's conclusion that he is eligible to run for the office of Mayor of the City of Chicago. We reverse the circuit court's judgment confirming the Board's decision, set aside the Board's decision and ... order that the candidate's name be excluded (or, if necessary, removed) from the ballot."

    The hells?

    Since when did the law matter in Chicago politics?
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    I find it amazing it took this long.

    It's not as if he was a third rate clerk in some obscure office... everyone in the damn country with half a brain knew where he was residing, yet the fool thought he could still pull this BS?

    It takes a huge dose of arrogance to try and pull this stunt. What type of fool tries to run for office when he doesn't qualify under the basic requirements and everyone knows it? ... never mind...

    I'm stunned.
