Court Removes Rahm Emanuel From Chicago Mayoral Ballot

Tyler Durden's picture


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.

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

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.

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."

Especially for all those Kleptocrats who contributed the almost $12m he has raised:

Exchange operators CME Group Inc . (CME) and CBOE Holdings Inc . (CBOE) are major backers of Emanuel's mayoral bid, alongside executives of hedge fund operator Citadel LLC and local trading firms like Getco LLC and DRW Holdings, according to documents filed with the Illinois State Board of Elections.

"We think he's the right guy for this job," said Leo Melamed, chairman emeritus of CME, which ranked among the biggest givers to the Emanuel campaign with $200,000. "He's fully aware of the various and sometimes very complex issues of the futures busines

The CME has a lot at stake if Emanuel wins, specifically their taxpayer subsidies for projects like remodeling trading floors using public TIF funds.  This story was exposed by Ben Jarovsky in the Chicago reader back in December When Daley gave them $15 million in TIF funds.  City property taxes are skimmed into the city TIF fund which is used to subsidize big deals for connected corporate interests.  Story here -

This is some kind of terrible mistake!  I am certain our friends in the Illinois Supreme court will have this straightened out by the end of the week if not sooner.

Rahm will find a way to keep his $11million in campaign contributions.   Not a bad months pay.

”The Illinois Supreme Court is absolutely loathe to overturn an appellate court decision,” an Illinois lawyer tells Politico’s Ben Smith. I have heard much the same from others familiar with Illinois judiciary — the state supreme court is expected to be even less-friendly to Rahm than was the appellate.

How sad.  Much of the commentary here focuses on his sexual preference or religion.

And you wonder why the leftists paint the right as a bunch of neanderthals??

Surely there is something substantive to say about his marxist policies, corrupt deal making, shakedowns of businesses, desire to raise taxes, the fact that many of his friends are in prison or stand accused of crimes that could put them there...?

Naaaah!  He's just a jew queer and leave it at that, right?

IMO everyone feels the same but expresses those feelings differently. The comments on his sexual and tribal extremes are the same as his political extremes, inseparable and one

Rahm is a fractal of himself. It appears all one big mess reflecting a bigger mess over and over and over

I'm sure Rahm will go and drown his sorrows down at Man's Country.  It's been strongly rumored he had prior memberships to this Chicago icon of gay bath houses.

Removal from ballot assumes that the court ruling will be treated as gospel. Chicago Tribune's headline characterizes this development as a 'setback'

"Setback" meaning that Rahm will not only have to get dead people to vote, but to write his name in as well.

The headline will be teleprompted by a MSM newscaster in his best impersonation of Howard Cosell: "Today the Zombie-Rahmbies emerged from the filth and the muck and the pollution of the Lake Michigan's gold coast and north shore to scrawl the one thing they knew how onto the ballot for mayor - 'Rahm. Raaaaahm. Rawh hawh hah haaawm!!!"

I wonder if this was in Rahm's famous "The Plan".  It's too bad he can't just be deported back to Israel so he can hang out with the majority of his Mossad operatives.
