Illinois court puts Emanuel back on the ballot
CHICAGO (Reuters) – Former White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel can run for mayor of Chicago, the Illinois high court ruled on Thursday, overturning a lower court ruling earlier this week to exclude him.
Some residents of Chicago have challenged Emanuel’s residency, saying that his stay in Washington as President Barack Obama’s chief of staff disqualified him from running for mayor under residency rules. Emanuel had argued that he always intended to return to Chicago after his U.S. service was over.
