My favorite part of their opinion is this nugget right here:
“the novel standard adopted by the appellate court majority is without any foundation in Illinois law.”
That’s legalese for “go fuck yourself”
Rahm’s eligibility isn’t a real hot button issue for me one way or another. From a purely pragmatic partisan point of view, I like it because it keeps Emanuel in the national spotlight allowing him to move up to a higher office eventually. But as I mentioned in my previous post, eligibility requirements for office holders like this are mostly stupid anyways. If anything we should encourage a market for competent bureaucrats.
