(CNN) – The Illinois Supreme Court will take up a ruling that would keep Rahm Emanuel off the Chicago mayoral ballot, and the court has agreed to a motion for an expedited ruling.
There will be no oral arguments in the case; the justices will use briefs already filed to the appeals court.
why is this news to the world? i live in chicago. i cant imagine caring who the mayor of LA is though
why does the headline say this is a "win" for Emanuel? He hasn't won anything yet. Th case is simply going to be heard at the next/highest level.
do you want to take over a country? just get a handful of your group into politics and on the judges bench.
Good for Rah!!! The whole premise was ludacris and sounded more like Reps trying to sway an election. He wil win hands down!
Sounds a little fishy.
CNN, good job on the screening. Don't worry, we all support him.
If he wins this I'm going to be extremely angry. He has no business running for mayor of Chicago.
I'll keep my fingers crossed. Hope he gets to stay on ballot.
Wow. Imagine that. Former Washington big wig gets courts to pay attention to his wants. Didn't see that coming. This country is in desperate need of another revolution.
Whoop de doo, as usual, the courts allow the politicians to circumvent the law...
What a surprise...
I wish I could live above the law. Nothing could keep him out. They take care of their own.
Having powerful friend does help...see
Wonderful news ! I believe he has what it takes to run a city like Chicago.
Given that he was serving the country in Washington it seems to me like he has a good case.
Geez, what a surprise...
For people to trust the system things like this needs to stop.
Thank God – Rahm is one of the hard working Americans I have ever seen and I think he will do the same for the people of Chicago.
I love how CNN says that the Illinois Supreme Court "hands him a win." They only agreed to give him a quick up-or-down decision on his candidacy, but he hasn't "won" anything. If anything, he has to show the state supreme court why the appellate court is wrong and he should be back in the mayoral race. Quite misleading, CNN.
Great. Since the Appellate Court abused its discretion, hopefully this is a quick no brainer.
Well of course :) Everything has a price.
Chicago Thuggery at it's finest!
Illinois does not need another machine politician. The man is either incompetent to run for an office where he does not staisfy the legal requirements or he is a typical Illinois machine politician how feels the rules do not apply to him. This would be a good time to start dismantling the Illinois Political Machine by inforcing the letter of the law such that he does not comply with the residency requirement. Additionally why does Chicago need a Mayor bought and paid for by out of state moeny?
in just 24hrs??????????
so easy to get a state supremecourt date for your personal case? i did not know that.
i gues in the court of law, all are equal, some more so! 3cheers to our system.
was he taken off in the first place?
