Rahm Emanuel Tossed Off Chicago Mayoral Ballot

There’ll be lots of swearing in Chicago today (or, you know, more so than usual, even given the Bears loss): “Rahm Emanuel was thrown off the ballot for mayor of Chicago today by an appellate court panel, a stunning blow to the fund-raising leader in the race. An appellate panel ruled 2–1 that Emanuel did not meet the residency standard to run for mayor.” Emmanuel is expected to appeal to Illinois’ Supreme Court.
