This is somewhat surprising:
The Appellate Court overturned a lower court ruling and said Rahm Emanuel cannot stay on the ballot for Chicago mayor, setting the stage for a state Supreme Court showdown.
A lawyer for Mr. Emanuel says the former White House chief of staff will appeal a ruling that says his name can’t appear on the ballot for Chicago mayor. Mike Kasper said on Monday that they will take the case to the Illinois Supreme Court.
The Appellate Court ruled 2-1 Monday that Mr. Emanuel does not meet the residency requirements to run for mayor in the Feb. 22 election.
Wouldn’t it be priceless if he lost the appeal. After all, that is how his boss Barack Obama won his race for state Senator.
