Submission + - Rahm Emanuel Booted from Chicago Ballot (chicagonewscoop.org)

Suki I writes: Former White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel has been ruled ineligible to run for Mayor of Chicago this election:

“We conclude that the candidate neither meets the the municipal code’s requirement that he have ‘resided’ in Chicago for the year preceding the election in which he seeks to participate nor falls within any exception to the requirement.”

Some cities actually require their politicians to live there before running for Mayor and other offices.
