    Sorry bout that,


    1. I think I smell another *rig job* in the works.
    2. Rahm can't live in two cities at same time.
    3. Who's behind this?
    4. Looks like the powers that be, ie Obama is pulling out all the stops.
    5. Obama will anoint him *KING RAHM OF CHICAGO*!!!!!!!
    6. Politics in America are going down the tubes folks, right before your eyes.
    7. Read about it here>Clout St: Supreme Court: Emanuel on Chicago mayor ballot



    "The Illinois Supreme Court ruled today that Rahm Emanuel can stay on the ballot for mayor of Chicago, saying in a unanimous decision that he meets the state's residency requirements despite spending most of the last year as White House chief of staff.

    The decision came without a moment to spare; early voting for the Feb. 22 city election begins Monday, Jan. 31. You can read the opinion by clicking here.

    "The voters deserved the right to make the choice of who should be mayor. And what the Supreme Court said basically, in short, that the voters should make the decicions of who will be mayor," a victorious Emanuel said after slapping backs and shaking hands with commuters at the Clark and Lake elevated train stop near his downtown headquarters.

    "The nice part was to be able to tell the news to voters, because a lot of people had not heard it," Emanuel said.

    While at the station, Emanuel took a congratulatory call from President Barack Obama. After that, Emanuel left for a debate tonight with the three other leading contenders in the mayoral contest.

    The Emanuel residency issue came up as the first question in tonight's debate. Former U.S. Sen. Carol Moseley Braun did not disagree with the court's decision and said the ruling doesn't change the field, since Emanuel has continued campaigning. Candidate Gery Chico said he believes in ballot access and has never challenged anyone's candidacy in his career.

    Emanuel said he's looking forward in the campaign."


    8. "Here lemme just move some empty boxes over to Chicago so I can say I live there."

    Why does every Democrat require a Lawyer, a Judge, and many trials just to be politicians. Seems they are about themselves, this elite do not need to follow rules, no birth certificate, not a citizen, no problem, they own the judges.

    It is possible that if he wins, he will be on his way to campaigning for the POTUS in `16?

    Why not? Dick Cheney was able to live in two states at the same time.
