And they wonder why nobody has any faith in the judicial system anymore.
(CNN) -- The Illinois Supreme Court ruled Thursday that former White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel met residency requirements and that his name will stay on the mayoral ballot in Chicago.
The justices said Emanuel's opponents did not prove that he had given up residency when he served in the Obama administration in Washington.
"Given the record before us, it is simply not possible to find clearly erroneous the (Chicago Board of Elections') determination that the objectors failed to prove that the candidate had abandoned his Chicago residence," the court ruled in a unanimous decision.
.....the objectors failed to prove that the candidate had abandoned his Chicago residence.....
How about the fact that the motherfucker DIDN'T LIVE THERE FOR THE PAST 2 YEARS?????
His opponents couldn't prove that? All they had to do was produce 1 fucking utilty bill in his name in DC or wherever he was living. Did he have a privately owned vehicle that was registered in the DC area? Could they not come up with a neighbor that could testify that he spent the majority of his nights in the DC area?
Fuck, maybe they should've hired me to prove that he wasn't a Shitcago resident.
