    Default Ill. court throws Emanuel off Chicago ballot

    http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/us_chicago_mayor_emanuel


    CHICAGO An Illinois appellate court on Monday threw former White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel off the ballot for Chicago mayor because he didn't live in the city in the year before the election.
    The decision cast doubt over Emanuel's candidacy just a month before the election. He had been considered the front-runner and had raised more money than any other candidate.
    The court voted 2-1 to overturn a lower-court ruling that would have kept his name on the Feb. 22 ballot.
    Emanuel plans to appeal the matter to the Illinois Supreme Court

    Knowing Chicago politics, and his power base, he'll get in one way or another.

    It will be interesting to see what is the basis for his appeal.

    You would think you'd have these little details taken care of before a former POTUS makes a special trip on behalf of your candidacy. (unless that's part of the power play)

    Illinois law is pretty clear that a candidate must have lived there for 1 year in advance of the election. Emmanuel is basing his legal arguments on the concept of "residency" which arguably he does meet. When I was in the Air Force, I claimed residency in Ill for tax purposes. However, I didn't say I lived there.

    The law that is in question is completely separate from the issue of residency. It is a part of the Illinois Municipal Code which actually requires a person to live in the political sub-division for which office is sought.

    Obviously you don't live in IL. What the law is, and what happens, often don't bear any relationship to each other.

    Anyone would be a fool to take that bet!

    He'll be mayor if the judge allows his candidacy or not.

    He'll be mayor if he get a majority or minority of votes.

    And that's all I'm gonna diss on him, because I don't want the black helicopters paying me a visit!
