The Illinois Supreme Court ruled unanimously Thursday that Chicago mayoral candidate Rahm Emanuel can stay on the ballot in next month's election.
Emanuel's attorneys filed an appeal Tuesday with the state's Supreme Court in response to a decision by an appellate court panel Monday that knocked him off the ballot. The panel ruled 2-1 that Emanuel did not meet the residency standard to run for mayor.
In a 7-0 decision Thursday, Justice Robert Thomas blasted the appellate court for overruling a Chicago elections board decision to put Emanuel, formerly President Barack Obama's chief of staff, on the ballot.
