Now that Jay Levine has been cleared of assaulting Bill Kelly, we can all rest easy so it is perhaps it is time for the media to ask Rahm Emanuel a few serious questions about his abilities to lead the City of Chicago.John Powers, Chicago Daily Observer. Given the financial straits of the city.
Rahmbo's the front runner, all the more reason to get these questions answered. After all, we don't want any nasty surprises like Blago, or his trial.
As for the residency issue, this is Illinois.
Here’s what’s going to happen: All the cases will be consolidated, hearings will be held by the election board and regardless of the outcome the matter will probably find its way up to the Illinois Supreme Court, which will ultimately find in Emanuel’s favor. They will rule that Emanuel’s two-year stint in the White House is equivalent to a soldier’s going to war somewhere and is therefore an exception to all the other residency requirements.And Rahm is an insider's insider.
Do you want to send him a card? Like the ad that popped up on my site encourages?
...and yes, his tenant filed for mayor:)
P.S. A movement for more transparency
