Could it be That the Tea Party Has Stopped Rahm Emanual in His Tracks?

By Nicholas Contompasis

"The Illinois appellate court which is dominated by democrat operatives just could be influenced by the weakening of the Obama Administration after the midterm elections. Just this morning the President sent a strong message to the Illinois Supreme Court that he is not happy with the lower courts decision, not to let his buddy run for Mayor of the Second City.
Millions are on the line for Rahm who has racked up over $10,000,000 in campaign contributions. He would have to return that money if he is not successful in being placed on the ballot. Also, let's not forget the many secret's of the former Mayor and Obama that must be kept in the closet or somebody could go to jail.
The winds across the country have changed in favor of the Tea Party and it seems they've reached the halls of the higher courts in Illinois."

Rahm Emanuel faces a double-barreled legal problem just days before voting begins in the Chicago mayoral race — stopping election officials from printing ballots without his name and persuading the state's highest court to restore his candidacy.
Hours after an Appellate Court decision removed him from the Feb. 22 election, lawyers for Emanuel late Monday asked the Illinois Supreme Court to stay that ruling while they prepare an appeal to make the case that Chicagoans should have a chance to vote for the former White House chief of staff.
Though the issue of whether Emanuel properly met a one-year residency requirement to run for mayor was always destined to come before the high court, he now goes to that seven-member forum in a weakened posture, carrying the weight of trying to prove the Appellate Court wrong. Traditionally, the state's highest court has shied away from local candidacy and residency election issues.
"We're ready to go on a very fast track," Emanuel attorney Kevin Forde said.
