Rahm Emanuel Back on Chicago Mayor Ballot

Jan 27, 2011 6:14pm

ABC News’ Chris Bury reports from Chicago:  The Illinois Supreme Court today struck down Monday’s  Appeals Court order that temporarily knocked former White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel off the ballot for Chicago’s February 22nd mayoral election. 

This reverses the appellate ruling that Emanuel failed to meet residency requirements. The state Supreme Court had already ordered Chicago’s Board of Elections to keep Emanuel’s name on the ballot pending this decision.  Early voting begins Monday.
