Emanuel cannot run for mayor… because he was not a Chicago resident for a year prior. But he raised tons of money, apparently more than the other candidates. He is continuing to fight the decision.. and odds are in the crooked town of Chicago, add the tons of money he has proven he can raise.. he likely will buy his ability to run, and then buy his position.
If he ends up being denied, if the courts uphold the law and do not allow him to run for mayor.. I will be extremely surprised & impressed! But, I am not holding my breath!
UPDATE: January 28, 2010: (no shock here)
