An attorney challenging Rahm Emanuel’s right to run for mayor of Chicago has taken his case to the Illinois Appellate Court.
A Cook County judge has ruled that Rahm Emanuel should stay on the mayoral ballot this February.
Fifteen separate challenges have been filed against Rahm Emanuel’s candidacy for mayor. Opponents claim he hasn’t been a Chicago resident for a full-year before the February election, as required by law.
An attorney whose specialty is election law says he will file a challenge on behalf of registered voters who don’t think Rahm Emanuel should be on the ballot for mayor because of residency.
