To run for mayor, a candidate must be a Chicago resident for at least one year before the Feb. 22, 2011, election. Generally, if a candidate leaves the state for work yet retains ownership of a city property, maintains his voter registration and continues to vote absentee, he should not have a problem, according to Jim Allen, a spokesman for the Chicago Board of Elections.
“We don’t know what nature an objection might be so I don’t want to prejudge the facts that might be filed, but when someone maintains voter registration in Chicago we consider that person a resident,” Allen said. “It’s no different from someone (who is) in the military or travels a great deal on business.”
Ok, who are we kidding, this asshat is a Democrat, and one of Obambi’s insiders, a long standing member of the political “machine” which is Chicago (Democratic) politics, of course he is going to be allowed to run. And chances are, will be the Democratic pick for mayor!
