(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.
I bet if he rubbed ole Oprah the right way he'd get approved.
We need to watch this one closely. It seems of late when government is in a big hurry to do something our citizen democracy seems to lose to corptocracy's insider trading!
There is something really wrong with someone who is wanting this so bad, This about his power and ego not who is best and right for Chicago.
Rahm will get his way just like every spoiled pathetic politician. Rules and Laws are only for us normal Americans. This system is a joke.
This is a movie in the making.
Did this guy think through his decision to run for Mayor and all the associated legal problems he is now going through before leaving his White House job?
Where are the Emanuel's haters now?
As a democrat poltician, Rahm is entitled to run anywhere and for any office as he sees fit. It doesn't even matter if he ends up losing a primary – if he wants to run for something, it is his God-given right. As we all know, the laws don't apply to people like him.
Another example of the Obama folks totally ignoring the law. They don't pay their taxes, they ignore the law because they think they are above it and they have supreme court justices (who never served a single day as a judge at any level) to declare the law agrees with their interpetation. I love this counrty but it is on its last leg. It will soon go the way of all free countries. The greed of the politicians will destroy it from within.
Why do we even have laws? It's obvious that they do not apply to everyone.
If his established residency is in question as to it being adequat for IL law. Why can't he just wait till next election?
Rahm should be on the ballot. My God, those of us in Southwest Florida have a California republican representing us in Congress.
waste of time
He will win and rightly so.
They just do whatever they want... Where does that leave the citizens?
Of course he gets handed a win. He's an evil man and he owns the courts.
He doesnt deserve any special treatment.
Go back to White House.
They were waiting for their checks to clear.
The headline of the article is deliberately misleading. I hope CNN would stop calling this a win and just call what it is. Why didn't the headline simply say ' Supreme court agrees to review the case' instead of sensationalizing and misleading.
Rham's brother, a neurosurgeon, should give him a brain transplant.
This is great and true "justice" due.
Any citizen that puts his or her life on hold to serve our country should not be stopped in the return to serve our Great city of Chicago.
You can't have your cake and eat it too, rahm emanuel
We have too many hacks in office now in Chitown. He'd run over his Mom to become mayor.
He is the type of person who has not discovered his purpose in life, which is ...to find his purpose in life...
Ain't that profound?
