Video: Rahm Emanuel reacts to being tossed from ballot

Video - Rahm Emanuel reacts to a court ruling throwing him off the ballot

Recorded earlier today...

Rahm Emanuel thrown off the ballot for Chicago mayor

The front-runner doesn't meet residency requirements, a state appeals court says, reversing the elections board. The former congressman and Obama chief of staff plans to appeal.

Emanuel, a former congressman, has been the front-running candidate in the race to succeed retiring Mayor Richard Daley. The latest poll by the Chicago Tribune showed Emanuel at 44%, more than double his closest rival, former U.S. Sen. Carol Moseley Braun.

In a 2-1 ruling Monday, the appellate panel said Emanuel does not meet the residency requirement of having lived in Chicago for a year prior to the election. The judges reversed a decision by the Chicago Board of Election Commissioners, which had unanimously agreed that Emanuel was eligible to run for mayor.

"We conclude that the candidate neither meets the [Illinois] 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," the majority judges wrote.

Word on North Ave. is mixed. Older street smart guys say Rahm is a lock for the ballot. Younger guys point to 3-4 Republican Justices who'll vote no, plus (?) one Justice married to Alderman Burke, who's supposedly fiercely opposed to Rahm.

I got my popcorn for damn sure.

Sorry. It's hit and miss posting vid links from a Blackberry. Go to www.youtube.com/mj43alderman and it's the most recent post (four total).

Johnny Lira is in the office, so it's a fucking circus there.

Yeah, that was actually the only edit from Sean's first cut, making the kid scene a tad longer--based on your reaction alone. It worked out well, I think.
