(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.
Of course they will let him on the ballot. He is Obama's hand picked man. Man I am glad I do not live in Illinois. It is corrupt to the bone.
What is going on in Illinois is what went on in Iran, Afghanistan, Russia, Iraq, Venezuela, .... corrupt politicians working with corrupt judges kicking people off of the ballot! Yes, Illinois truly is the political corruption capital of the world. Notice, also, that the kicking in Chicago is against Democrats by Democrats. Never, ever trust an Illinois Democrat. They even kill their own kind.
Of coiurse his name will be on the ballot. It would not be Chicago if a tax evader were denied right to run for political job.
Go RHam – get everything you dreamed of. Don't let the law get in your way; just smash over them, fill your pockets and those of your cronies and stay off the tax rolls.
Corruption at its finest. Throw out the scum from Chicago including Hussein Obama. When will this country stand up and fight to end corruption by big government, unions, and inside cronies like those in Illinois. It is time for a real fight in this country.
anyone else that did the same thing and hadn't lived there would not have been allowed – shows that politicians just have to scream a little and get what they want. What's the point of the rule if even the politicians get to bypass a rule
Better check the bank accounts of those judges very closely.
Was there ever any doubt in the most politically corrupt city in the country? Why would he have left DC if he wasn't sure. Why should it matter than he, nor his wife & kids have lived there in over a year?
Sounds like the same group of geniuses that let Hillary carpetbag her way into the NY Senate without previously living there.
Sounds like the other candidates are really threatened by him being in the race. Put him on and let the voters decide! He has served his country for the last 2 years in the White House and before that in the House for six years and also for Clinton. The residence issue is baloney, especially since he was in Washington to serve for the President.
Told you so! Yesterday I said that by midnight tonight the Appeals Court ruling would be overturned and Emanuel would be back in the race. I may be off by about 24 to 48 hours, but there was never any doubt that the Appeals Court ruling was just legal nonsense.
I'm not an Emanuel supporter, but he WILL be on the ballot and he WILL be the next mayor of Chicago.
Typical liberal, keep whining until they get what they want.
Total disregard for the law and the courts.
like obama said " judge me by the people i surround myself with"
Get em Rahm your a stud! No one gets it done like you,.. Get your paper Rahm!
This should be a clear-cut case. He should NOT be on the ballot. But this slime-ball (Obama's hatchet man) has some big-time connections. he'll win the case and the election on HIS terms. Screw what the LAW says, I guess. Our politics are corrupt as hell. No wonder people don't wanna vote.
Please! This Emanuel has "resided" in Chicago for years! If he were a Republican in that State, he'd be out of the Mayoral race.
Of course it will because hes a crooked rich prick. Our legal system is a joke. So is America .
Keep it up rahm
Who says he won? CNN? Lousy slavery crooks
The rules are pretty clear, he needs to be living in the city of chicago for the year prior to the election to run.
This is just another case of the politically connected circumventing the rules for their own gain
Typical illinois corrution
This is ridiculous. First, it is black and white – he does not qualify. Second, why would anybody even want this guy to be their mayor if he hasn't lived in the city that he wants to govern? (I want my mayor to be someone that actually has a vested interest in the prosperity of my city and isn't just using it for his own political agenda.)
Watch Chicago politics at work here, bet a buck Obama's 'boy' will get in... One of we regular citizens would be in jail.
Of course. Obama wants him there....he'll be there. Obama don't follow laws or the constitution
I guess it's ok to "bend the rules" for certain Obama'ites since he himself didn't follow them to win the his position.
Did he pay city income tax. Bet not!
He is cheap tax dodger.
go back to DC
Let the payoffs begin....
yesterday...CNN did not even mention the news about Rahm kicked out of being mayor. Today...front page news that the court will hear him!!!! CNN plays games with the new they like!
