Shocking news: Illinois appeals court says Emanuel is disqualified to run for mayor
And I thought the insiders, in this case the Obama gang, controlled everything in Chicago. Also, if the Obama gang cannot maintain total control over Chicago, can they maintain total control over … the Hawaii Department of Health?
The New York Times reports:
An Illinois appeals court panel has ruled that Rahm Emanuel, the former White House chief of staff, does not qualify to run for mayor of Chicago in next month’s election. The ruling, which was announced on Monday, comes as a significant and unexpected setback for Mr. Emanuel, who has been a front-runner both in polls and in fundraising in the race…Excuse me, but isn’t the elimination of Emanuel’s candidacy (short of a reversal by the Illinois Supreme Court) something more than a mere setback? I remember when Times reporters were competent writers of English. Unless the Times knows that the fix is already in at the Supreme Court. In which case its competence in English usage is not impugned.
Here are a few Lucianne.com comments which echo my point about the apparent crumbling of the insiders’ power:

I’m not so sure Rahm is such an insider anymore.
