    I believe that the law says that he must have maintained a residence for one year. Only by a real stretch of the truth will that be true. His only real estate holding is leased to another.

    I agree that it will be interesting and your points are valid. While it would fall under different rules, my father was a non-resident US citizen for 28 years. He started out as a Tennessee resident and returned to Tennessee 28 years later after living all over the world. Throughout that time, he maintained a Tennessee drivers license and was considered by Tennessee to be a resident for all similar purposes even though he owned no property in the state and did not maintain a residence. The view was that he was on a temporary assignment as part of his job with Union Carbide.

    If you own a house that was previously your primary residence and you leased it out during what is clearly a temporary job assignment out of state, I suspect you would have a good case. It would be interesting to know if he maintained an Illinois drivers license and continued to file tax returns as an Illinois resident.

    I think as long as you maintain dirty chicago-style politics wherever you are, they will consider you a resident in good standing.

    I'm sure he can snap his fingers and get himself an Illinois driver license he needs, as well as a residence. But as for taxes, he may not have filed at all. High ranking officials in this administration aren't required to pay them

    It's got all manner of twists and traps.

    To begin with, each state will have it's own residency requirements. If he's gainfully employed outside the state (which he is), does the Illinois statute recognize government service vs military service? Dunno. With military service you still have an Illinois address. Technically, he doesn't.

    This is going to be worth a dish of buttered popcorn.

    http://www.realclearpolitics.com/vid...for_mayor.html

    Attorney Burt Odelson, a noted elction-law expert, is predicting Rahm Emanuel will be ineligible for mayor because he is not a legal resident of Chicago.

    Odelson told Roe and Roeper on WLS Radio that when Emanuel leased out his Chicago home he could no longer claim he is a resident.

    “He rented his house out in Sept 09 and has not been back since and has no residency in Chicago,” Odelson said.

    Odelson says he has been involved in several residency cases in Illinois that “the law is clear.” (source: WLS-AM)
    I still believe he will run and the lawmakers in Chicago will allow it.
