    Default Rahm will run in Chicago

    http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2010...chicago-mayor/#

    Election board hearing officer Joseph Morris said evidence suggests that Emanuel had no intention of terminating his residency in Chicago, left the city only to work for Obama and often told friends he intended to live in Washington for no more than two years.
    In his recommendation, Morris wrote that the question wasn't whether Emanuel established residency in Illinois in 2010, but whether he abandoned it. Morris said he found no evidence that Emanuel had done so, arguing that "the touchstone of continued residence is the intention of the resident, and not the physical fact of `having a place to sleep."'

    Morris also noted that Emanuel was born and married in Chicago, owns a home in the city where he still keeps valuable possessions, has an Illinois driver's license and voted in Chicago in every election between 1999 and February 2010.
    Future candidate hopefuls will now know what they need to do in order to satisfy residency requirements.

    The hearing focused heavily on Emanuel's home, with objectors contending he wasn't a resident partly because he rented out his house when his family joined him in Washington in the summer of 2009.

    Emanuel said he leased his home for safety and security reasons. He tried to move back into his house when he returned to Chicago but the family renting it wanted $100,000 to break the lease and move out early. The tenant, businessman Rob Halpin, later filed paperwork to run for mayor against Emanuel, only to withdraw from the race a short time later.
    The Associated Press contributed to this report.

    Chicago can have him.

    I don't live there so I couldn't care less what they do there.

    will he win? If he wins, will it be just because he has a "D" in fron of his name?

    Odelson Preps New Anti-Rahm Suit

    Just moments after the Chicago Board of Elections voted to place Rahm Emanuel on the mayoral ballot, lead objector Burt Odelson laid the foundation for the next step.

    Odelson, who argued against Emanuel's residency, said he will file suit today at the Cook County Circuit Court to have Emanuel removed.

    He will ask that the case be expedited so the challenge can be heard prior to the election less than three months away.

    Political analysts have suggested the case will end up in the Illinois Supreme Court before the elections.
