He's back...Rahm Emanuel

Rahm Emanuel back on the ballot for Chicago mayor - latimes.com

The Illinois Supreme Court on Tuesday blocked the removal of former White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel's name from the ballot for Chicago mayor, at least temporarily.

The state's high court issued a stay of Monday's appellate court decision that knocked Emanuel off the ballot on the grounds he was not a resident of Chicago for the last year, as required by Illinois law.

Emanuel served as President Obama's chief of staff until stepping down last fall to seek the Chicago mayor's office. Monday's decision was the first major setback for Emanuel, who has a wide lead over his opponents in fundraising and in polling by the Chicago Tribune.
