The Illinois Supreme Court today said it will decide whether Rahm Emanuel meets the residency requirement to run for Chicago mayor, staying a decision by an appellate court that threw him out of the race and ordering his name to remain on the ballot in the meantime.
“Several justices received dead fishes in the mail from someone named ‘Ron,'” said Supreme Court spokeswoman Lee Kefaucett. “Each fish had an iPod in its mouth repeating the phrase ‘take the case,’ ‘take the case.'”
Kefaucett said the fish had nothing to do with the court’s decision.
