Remember when I noted yesteray how Rahm Emanuel cackled at his press conference after expressing confidence that he’d prevail in the mayoral ballot case?
Cue the cackle again.
The Illinois Supreme Court has granted Rahm Emanuel’s stay. Which means he’s back on the ballot.
Earlier today Emanuel’s spokesman Ben Labolt said the mayoral candidate had plans to turn to the U.S. Supreme Court if he didn’t receive a favorable ruling from the state.
Not a moment too soon, Burt Odelson directed the board of elections to print Emanuel’s name on ballots, which are being printed today.
Back to business as usual: The Teamsters give a thug-hug endorsement to Emanuel.
