Court Issues Stay, Keeping Rahm Emanuel on the Ballot

More

The Illinois Supreme Court has issued a stay allowing Chicago mayoral candidate Rahm Emanuel to remain on the ballot after a lower court deemed him ineligible for office Monday.

That's a very good sign for the Emanuel campaign, and a move the court would have been unlikely to make were they not planning to take up his appeal of the lower court decision.

All ballots printed during the period of the stay will have to have Emanuel's name on them; ballot printing had begun last night without it.
