Anyone else hear that Rahm may not be eligible to run for Mayor, because he rented out his Chicago residence since going to the White House, and Chicago law requires you reside in Chicago for the 12 months prior to becoming elected Mayor? This is slightly old news, but it would come down to how election law views his house. As you mentioned, Emanuel still owns a home in Chicago, but has rented it out since joining the Obama administration in Washington DC. He obviously hasn't lived there. If a judge looks at the property as "rental income," Rahm would loose out. But it hasn't been decided or challenged.
