26. Actually, the residency requirement doesn't matter in Rahm's case--
Edited on Thu Dec-30-10 12:25 AM by msanthrope
The BCEC found that he never lost residency from 1999--not that he had established, or re-established residency recently.

In his recommendation, Morris wrote that the question wasn't whether Emanuel established residency in Illinois in 2010, but whether he abandoned it. Morris said he found no evidence that Emanuel had done so, arguing that "the touchstone of continued residence is the intention of the resident, and not the physical fact of 'having a place to sleep.'"

Morris also noted that Emanuel was born and married in Chicago, owns a home in the city where he still keeps valuable possessions, has an Illinois driver's license and voted in Chicago in every election between 1999 and February 2010.

There's nothing that indicates Judge Ballard will think differently.
