Rahm Emanuel Thrown Off Mayoral Ballot?

Rahm Emanuel was thrown off the ballot for mayor of Chicago today by an appellate court panel, ruling 2-1 he did not meet the residency standard to run for mayor.

Following the ruling, Emanuel said he is confident he will win an appeal and be on the Feb. 22 mayoral ballot.

“I have no doubt at the end we will prevail,” he said. “As my father has said, ‘Nothing is ever easy.’”

Emanuel served as White House Chief of Staff in President Obama's administration, and served as president Clinton's advisor from 1993 to 1998.

On Emanuel's FaceBook page he invites viewers to review a recent press conference, held earlier today, where he he claims to owe a home in Chicago, and pays taxes there.

His website does not appear to be functioning.
