Election board: Emanuel will remain on ballot


#1

Rahm Emanuel is a Chicago resident and therefore can run for mayor, the Chicago Board of Election Commissioners ruled Thursday.
The unanimous ruling in favor of the former White House chief of staff comes after board hearing officer Joe Morris ruled early Thursday morning that Emanuel’s name should remain on the ballot.
The board affirmed Morris’ decision after a morning hearing.
Burt Odelson, the main attorney for those objecting to Emanuel’s residency, said he would immediately file a court challenge. Odelson implied that Thursday’s ruling had political undertones: he said in previous cases he’s argued before the board under similar circumstances, candidates have been thrown off the ballot.

Chicago politics never changes. The democrats have held that town so long they rule what happens there.

I’m thinking, the machine is in place.

Chicago is much like California, the people deserve whatever happens to them for tolerating such corruption and choosing the most vile of criminals to represent them.

Those with no respect for truth will live void of Justice.

[/quote]I am reminded of Todd Stroger who replaced his dad who held the office before him in Chicago. The democrat machine got him elected and after election he proved to be a petty dictator who had airs of godhood and raised taxes and put his friends and relatives in office.

Later Stroger was voted out.
