Judge: Rahm Emanuel Back on Mayoral Ballot

Judge: Rahm Emanuel Back on Mayoral Ballot

The Illinois Supreme Court put Rahm Emanuel back on the ballot for Chicago mayor on Thursday, reviving his campaign to lead the country’s third-largest city. The former White House chief of staff was thrown off the Feb. 22 ballot by an Illinois appellate court for not meeting a residency requirement because he hadn’t lived in Chicago for a year before the race. The Supreme Court ruled unanimously in his favor. Emanuel lived for nearly two years in Washington working for President Barack Obama until he moved back to Chicago in October to run for mayor. Emanuel, who has said he always intended to return to Chicago and was only living in Washington at the request of the president, had asked the Supreme Court to overturn the appeals court ruling. Within minutes of the ruling, Emanuel was at a downtown Chicago public transit station shaking hands with residents.

Illinois Supreme Court to Hear Rahm Emanuel’s Appeal

CHICAGO – Illinois’ highest court agreed Tuesday to take Rahm Emanuel’s appeal of a decision that threw him off the ballot for Chicago mayor and ordered election officials not to print any mayoral ballots without Emanuel’s name. State Supreme Court justices agreed to expedite the case, but they gave no specific time frame. They planned to review legal briefs only and would not hold oral arguments. Emanuel has asked the court to overturn a lower ruling that pulled his name off the ballot because he had not lived in the city for a year. His attorneys called Monday’s decision “squarely inconsistent” with previous rulings on the issue.
