RH owns property & pays state taxes & was serving at the pleasure of the President. I imagine someone didn't want him to run.

The Illinois Supreme Court has ordered the Chicago Board of Election Commissioners to put Rahm Emanuel’s name back on the mayoral ballot, attorneys for Emanuel said Tuesday.

The court has not decided whether to hear Emanuel’s appeal of Monday’s Illinois Appellate Court ruling that tossed him out of the race to replace Mayor Daley. The Supreme Court granted Emanuel’s motion for a stay of the ruling, Emanuel attorney Mike Kasper said Tuesday.

The state appellate court ruled Monday that Emanuel did not meet the one-year residency requirement to run for mayor of Chicago.

Emanuel’s attorneys, heavily citing the dissenting opinion in that case, are hoping to convince the seven justices of the Supreme Court to allow Emanuel to run.

Emanuel had been leading in the polls and in campaign fund-raising.

The appellate court decision came just as the Board of Election Commissioners was about to print ballots for the Feb. 22 election. Early voting begins Monday.

"Rahm Emanuel displaying all the morality of an alley cat"

What does this mean?

Alley cats have no morals.

Neither does Rahm Emanuel.

What's immoral about running for mayor?

When you don't care enough to attempt to meet eligibility requirements I think it is immoral.

When you have to go whining to the courts because you think silly things like complying with requirements shouldn't apply to you.

But the courts of Illinois don't mind enabling this guy, it would appear.
