Court Removes Rahm Emanuel From Chicago Mayoral Ballot

Some very bad news for the former Obama head henchman:according to NBC
Chicago, the mayoral candidate has just been bounced from the mayoral
ballot after an appellate court has overturned a previous decision to
allow Emanuel on the mayoral ballot. One can only imagine the firestorm of profanity that has erupted upon Rahm's learning of the news...

From NBC Chicago:

Rahm Emanuel's residency fight just took a turn for the worse.

The Illinois Appellate Court ruled 2-1 to overturn a Chicago Board of Elections decision to allow Rahm Emanuel on the mayoral ballot.

Rahm's Attorney Kevin Forde says "its a surprise."

The candidate's residency has been questioned since he announced his intention to leave the White House and pursue public office in Chicago.

Opponents say Emanuel gave up his residency when he moved his family to Washington D.C. to serve as the White House Chief of Staff. During his abscence he rented his home to Rod Halpin.

Emanuel endured a lengthy questioning by citizen objectors in December after which the Chicago Board of Elections said Emanuel belonged on the ballot.

One of the most ardent objectors, Paul McKinley, today said better luck next time.

"It's about the law nothing personal," McKinley said. "Rahm- he can run in four years."

Lead opposition attorney Burt Odelson then filed a motion in Cook County Circuit court, which upheld the Board of Election decision to allow him on the ballot.

Odelson said he was "pretty damn happy," and that since the ballots have not been printed Emanuel's name will not be on it.  

Mike Kasper, Emanuel's atty says he will appeal to Supreme Court as soon as tomorrow.

At last some good news from Chicago

Max Hunter's picture

I wonder if it's because he served in the IDF??

Nahhhh.... what's that got to do with it?

RingToneDeaf's picture

IDF? So what.

Crazier than a Shit House Rat? Yes.

Ignores Constitution, rule of law to pursue personal adgenda, go figure, chickens come home to roost.


Eternal Student's picture

Yep. Couldn't happen to a more deserving a**hole.

Hey, Rahm! Here's a good crisis that I hope you don't let go to waste.

High Plains Drifter's picture

Well , this is bad news for Rahm. Maybe he can go nurse his political wounds at his favorite Man's club and get a blow job from his favorite local male prostitute....

weinerdog43's picture

Nah.  The nearest canine or bovine would do for him just fine.

You gotta remember that this is Chicago.

His name won't be on the ballot but he will still end up being elected as Mayor.

Don't ask me how this works. It's the American way.

Rahm's picture

Your learning the Mot#erF@#K!nG way danielson!  Care to help me get some Mot#erF@#K!nG dead chicagoians to sign the Mot#erF@#K!nG petition, there's no Mot#erF@#K!nG time to Mot#erF@#K!nG waste!

Rahm you are word smith pal. Say didn't they teach you at temple not to talk like that?

His next gig will be associated with Israel somehow.

goldmiddelfinger's picture

They have hedge funds there?

Cash_is_Trash's picture

They have undeclared nukes and biological and chemical weapons, but shhh

High Plains Drifter's picture

Plus all of Bernie Madoff's funds as well.

jeff montanye's picture

and hedge funds.  yes they have funds fully hedged.

gorillaonyourback's picture

he allways been associated with israel. wonder what he would say if u asked where is your allegience, with the US or israel?

lsbumblebee's picture

He would probably say "you anti-semite", or in his case "you fucking anti-semite", while his fellow Khazar Jews continue to practice genocide on the Semitic Palestinians.

You got that right!  Rahm "the Ballerina" Emanuel volunteered to fight with the IDF while he claimed to be American, and the US had two active wars at the time ('06).

Scumbag traitor, like all Israel-firsters.

One would think that anyone who is a citizen of a foreign country, who has fought in that other country's armed forces as well, could somehow get next to a President of the United States. But hey, what do I know.

jeff montanye's picture

is there a not missing between could and somehow?  given that you make a good point.  

and of course it's not just "fought in that other country's armed forces" but also "and pissed off about a billion people a good several million of whom are characterized by either an implacable warrior tradition millennia long with an emphasis on vengeance against the invader or a more recent ardent taste for the suicide kill."

illyia's picture

Yes... finally. Some good news.

Rahm's picture

What the f@#K! Mot#erF@#K!nG Mot#erF@#K Mot#erF@#K!nG Mot#erF@#K Mot#erF@#K!nG Mot#erF@#K how many dead Chicagoians do I have to get to sign the Mot#erF@#K!nG petition?

Rahm is organized crime.  Why does he want/need to be mayor of Chicago?

The leadership in this country is basically a cartel.

Oh regional Indian's picture

Too true. Most people do not understand the depth to which the Mafia are in teh very fabric of the farce that is America Today.

Jesuits seem to be at the top of the totem pole, their creators and controllers.

Very interesting.


High Plains Drifter's picture

Jesuits at the top, well I will be dipped?

jeff montanye's picture

it's not just jesuits and it's not just a cartel.  i'll let you augment the religious categories in the first part but as for the second, as jesse and janet tavakoli agree, it is the largest and most dangerous control fraud in the history of the world.

Oh regional Indian's picture

Agreed. Wheels within wheels within wheels. The Jesuit (Black Pope)/Vatican thing has been top of my mind/reading lately.

Checked out CafeAmerican, very cool.  Thanks.

One would think that organized crime and the mayor of Chicago would be best friends; why not make it the same person?

Why did we let his old man, the bus bombing terrorist, in this country in the first place?

jeff montanye's picture

i'm not sure, and i wish i had read the personal papers of general marshall (also secretary of state who advised truman against helping make israel a nation), but i think it was, at base, mostly about feeling sorry for the victims of the nazis. some would add combined with an amazing preponderance in law, finance, media and government, especially following said victimization and especially in the u.s.
