(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.
Lookie what money can buy..... This is BS what happened to playing by the rules ?
This guy is a thug he has not lived in chicago long enough to qualify anyway but watch and
see how money buys off the rules...
corruption right before our eyes.
Seems like he knows something we dont by that GREASY SMILE on his face...
Bite me once shame on you bite me twice shame on me...
Wont make that mistake again.......
As it should be...
Of ccourse they will break the laws and rule in his favor. Thats what democrats from illinois do
...good, so maybe he'll get two affirms in a row and deal with them.
hello? how did he advance his case so quickly? why is it so important he's mayor of Chicago?
Correct result – better to err on side of allowing him on the ballot than leaving off.
They'll let him because it's Chitown. Probably the most corrupt city in America. Obama's former strong arm tactic man will whine and twist arms til he gets what he wants and damn the law.
Good for Rahm, and I believe its good for Chicago as well. Skillful politicians are not that many out there left.
Goldman Sachs hasn't been buying politicians and spending all that money for nothing, he'll get on the ballot and win.
Did anyone really expect anything else?
I am certainly not a fan of Mr. Emanuel's leftist political principles (nor am I a fan of the right), unless Emanuel overtly did something during his move to Washington that clearly indicates the intent to permanently change his place of primary residency to Washington DC or anywhere else, it would seem that he legally had never relinquished his primary residency in Illinois. Is there something about this case that legally would indicate otherwise?
Of course they will rule in his favor. Thats what democrats do in illinois. They think they are above the laws
CHICAGO citizens need Mr. Emmanuel do not use the court system to deny them a good representation
Hands Rahm a win? He has the opportunity to have his case looked at again in appeal, he hasn't won anything.
Would the court treat a republican or
In the same manner?
This is all a big scam. The guy should be eligible to run but the state is so corrupt and racist they want politics as usual. Sad really.
Of course they will rule in his favor. Thats what democrats do in illinois. They think they are above the law
I think Emanuel should be allowed to run. He may not have technically lived in Chicago but thats because his job as whitehouse chief of staff made that impossable. He didnt move away to sweep chimneys he was serving his country in an important roll. If he had been a soldier stationed overseas would you deny him the right to run in his home town? Hell he even paid property taxes in Chicago.
The rules said he must have resided in the city for a year, which he did not. I will be surprised if the appeals court ruling is overturned.
Oh, thank goodness. For a minute I thought corruption in Illinois was dead. Strong arm them Rahm.. I'm sure you'll get what you want.
The Appelate Court will be overturned mostly on the reasoning of the dissent. They did apply the test for when someone gives up their residence (in the legal sense of the word – not the lay person sense of the word). Factually, he never gave us his status as a resident of Chicago. The court below held as much and there are no facts that the appelate court cited as to why their initial decision was wrong. I expect unanimous decision by the court in fairly quick order.
The headline on the front page seems a little misleading: "Court hands Emanuel a win". The story says they just agreed to rule on it, am I reading that wrong?
Good luck Rahm!
What is a rahm Emanuel??
Of course they're going to take it and expedite it.. he's a Democrat, and this is Chicago. Nothing to see here, folks..
