Rahm Emanuel knocked off ballot by Appellate Court
WLS Radio | 1/24/2011 | self

Posted on 01/24/2011 10:09:04 AM PST by Piranha

I just heard on WLS radio in Chicago that the Illinois Court of Appeals (the second-highest court in the state) overturned the recommendation of the electoral panel and ruled that Rahm Emanuel may NOT be on the ballot for Mayor. They ruled that he did not meet the statutory residence requirement nor did he meet any of the statutory exceptions.

Wow.

That means the appellate court is supporting another candidate.

To me the killer was when he stopped paying Illinois income taxes. If he had truly stayed a resident he would have paid the taxes, but he decided that he had officially moved to Washington in 2009.

Thanks for linking the Sun-Times article.

I see that I have to correct what I wrote. The committee ruled that Emanuel could be on the ballot, and the lower court upheld that decision, The Appellate Court decision did not overturn the committee ruling, it overturned the lower court ruling. The effect is the same, but procedurally the case had to go through the circuit court before it reached the Appellate Court.

So....

If they don’t find a way to get him on the ballot, then it will be some other dick who’s just as bad.

And really... This is the state of Chicago we are talking about, if they want him to be mayor he will be mayor. Everything else is just the drama between the opening act and the last scene.

He WILL be on it!
If nothing else, the past 3 years have taught me that LAWS only apply to us little people.

He has enough wealthy and influential friends to be above the law.

I will eat my hat if he is not on the ballot.

The Illinois Appellate Court ruled 2-1 against Rahm (Obama). It will now go to the Illinois Supreme Court which does NOT have to accept the case.

The Appellate overruled the Chicago Circuit Court. The majority said the election law means what it says....and Rahm didn't live in the city the past year. Plus, it stated that Rahm's defense did not match up to any exemptions to the law.

This a major blow to Obama's 2012 re-election campaign. He needs the Chicago Machine dead, illegal and multiple votes to win, and Rahm, the Dead Fish enforcer, is to be in charge of same.

I don’t know that it is a federal issue. It goes to the Illinois Supreme Court, and then they would have to find a federal issue in order to bring it to the US Supreme Court.

It goes to the Illinois Supreme Court, not the same one that Kagan and what’s her name are on.

Or at least an in your face visit from a naked Rahm to give them a piece of his mind.

Governor Quinn should step in and say that he was there when Rahm lived in Chicago, and it is disrespectful to Rahm’s parents to question his residency, and he will prove to the world that Rahm has always been a resident of Chicago.
