Where are Rahm Emanuel’s boxes?

CHICAGO — Taking center stage at the Chicago Board of Elections hearing Wednesday was Lori Halpin, the woman who currently rents Rahm Emanuel’s North Side home with her husband Rob.

In the second day of hearings to determine whether the former White House chief of staff meets the residency requirements to run for mayor, Lori Halpin recounted the phone call she received in September informing her Rahm Emanuel planned to return to Chicago to run for mayor and wanted to move back into his house. According to Halpin, the person on the phone said it was a “highly confidential matter…. extremely confidential.”

Halpin said she and her husband had no desire to move their family out of the house. The Halpins had recently extended the lease through June 30, 2011, to coincide with the end of Emanuel’s lease for the home he was renting in Washington, DC.

    Remember, this is the group that believes truth depends on the meaning of the word “is”.

    I’m not sure we want to see him removed from the Chicago mayoral race.

    obamasoros might bring him back to DC- good for the GOP with his mouth on center stage and pelosi’s snapped shut.

  • FreedomRocks76

    The point of the hearing ts to create some magical condition that says Rahm IS allowed to run in spite of being totally inelligible. He is a powerful Chicago Democrat and the Law has no meaning or effect on him, other than however he wants to twist and pervert it for his benefit.
    Same rules as the President operates under.
    Haven’t you been paying attention?

    Let me ask you guys this: If Washington, D.C. had a rule that running for mayor of that wonderful city had a requirement of one years residence, do you think the ballet boy would meet that requirement? If so, he doesn’t qualify for the Chicago rule. End of discussion.

  • Right is Right

    OF COURSE THERE IS NO BOXES. The guys a liar. He’s been around the biggest one and has learned quickly.

  • ladylove

    how long does it take to ask, did you live here from such a date, to such a date,

    then say sorry you do not meet the qualifications, according to the laws of this state.

    and we wonder what is wrong with our judicial system.

  • pepito

    Ahaa, hahahahahaaa. Now who on earth would vote for this foul mouthed, corrupt hack? Oh, only clueless Chicagoans, thats who…

  • Idahosauce

    His residency papers are in the same box as Obama’s birth certificate…Non Existent.

    It is clear to anyone with a brain that Rahm Emanuel has NOT lived in Chicago for a full year prior to Feb 2011. Who on Earth does not know that he has been working in Washington DC for the President?! He would have had to be commuting back and forth between Chicago and Washington if he (factually, and LITERALLY) LIVED there!

    The fact that he is wasting everyone’s time and money by belaboring this charade is SO TYPICAL of liberals! More gray areas! We are to believe that because he alleges to have 100 boxes in storage here (in Chicago), that it proves he “LIVES” in Chicago?!

    LIVES HERE! What nerve. He has children, who I assume were going to school somewhere in or near Washington. If they resided in Chicago, that would not be.

    He needs to end this big farce. What an ego this idiot has.
