As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Court: Rahm Can’t Run

An Appeals Court has overruled and earlier decision allowing Rahm Emanuel to run for mayor of Chicago, voting by a 2-1 margin that he fails to meet the residency requirement.

For now, it appears, he’s off the ballot, but he can appeal to the State Supreme Court. The election takes place next month.

In a poll released last week by the Chicago Tribune, Rahm was leadingĀ  field of candidates with 44 percent of the vote.

Rahm’s trouble is that he has lived in Washington the last couple of years, while renting out his home in Chicago. When he decided to run for mayor last year, he tried to get his renter out of his house, but the fellow refused to go.

We conclude that the candidate neither meets the Municipal Code’s requirement that he have ‘resided in’ Chicago for the year preceding the election in which he seeks to participate nor falls within any exception to the requirement,” the majority judges wrote.

Accordingly, we disagree with the Board’s conclusion that he is eligible to run for the office of Mayor of the City of Chicago. We reverse the circuit court’s judgment confirming the Board’s decision, set aside the Board’s decision and … order that the candidate’s name be excluded (or, if necessary, removed) from the ballot.

Reached by phone today by White House Dossier for comment, Mr. Emanuel gave the following statement:

“The whole %$!#^& thing is %$&#$! because the &^%$*&# had a @#$#! and I don’t $%#*& think the $%#$% judges up their %$#^*ingĀ  &^%$#*#’s.”

  1. ROFLMAO.

    Could not have happened to a finer man. He’ll appeal the decision and take this to the SC; power-mad liberal-Marxists have no chance in the public sector – all Rahm knows is politics (and corruption).

    • I would NOT be suprised if Rahm were to get his own show on MSNBC (or CNN) if the SC maintains the lower courts opinion and he can’t run for Mayor of Chicagoland. He could always join CNN and become the other half of “Spitzer & Emanuel” once they boot the frigid Parker off the show.

      MSNBC’s new lineup: “Rahm it up your A**” with Rahm Emanuel, 9pm CST.

    • Update:
      MrEmanuel will appeal this ruling to an even higher court as he is confident that he would be elected Mayor with a 5million vote plurality, has a $10M pile of cash on hand, and the other candidates are loser idiots carefully selected by his staff to make him look good.
      His failure to rent a room at a SouthSide flophouse for a year to secure his residency should in no way deny the good citizens of Chicago his wonderfulness as their Mayor.
