Former White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel was elected mayor of Chicago on Tuesday, easily overwhelming five rivals to take the helm of the nation's third-largest city as it prepares to chart a new course without the retiring Richard M. Daley.

With 86 percent of the precincts reporting, Emanuel was trouncing five opponents with 55 percent of the vote to avoid an April runoff. Emanuel needed more than 50 percent of the vote to win.

The other major candidates -- former Chicago schools president Gery Chico, former Sen. Carol Moseley Braun and City Clerk Miguel del Valle -- had hoped to force a runoff but were no match for Emanuel.

I wonder if the headline should read Rahm Emanuel bought mayorship in chicago. It was not long ago i saw the headline that Emanuel was ineligible due to the fact he didn;t have a resaidency there for at least a year. And I knew at the time that soemthing like that would n;t stop him. NOt in Chicago. A little law like that.

I believe he is in this for all the wrong reasons. He is an Alpha personality and one that probably didn;t like playing second fiddle to Obama. I feel sorry for Chicago.

I highly doubt anyone who is educated in the realm of American politics is even remotely surprised by this or even needed to see the news to confirm it.

Hope he does a better job in Chicago than he did in Washington.

I have been there twice, loved the food and a few people I met. But my total impression was one of "I do not need to visit here no more". And I haven't.

Of course. Did you really expect anything different? The game was rigged. Look for a big false flag in Chicago a'la Guliani and 9/11, coming to the city soon.

I'd bring up the absolute fact that he doesn't meet residency requirements to be the mayor of Chicago, but since when does the law get in the way of progress(ives)?

Yeah but who cares about candidate eligibility laws... definitely not his former boss.


Mr. Emanuel IS a suspicious character...

The new "golden boy" of the Democrat Party, the Israeli-American congressman Rahm Emanuel, is the son of terrorist. Really, I am not making this up, the chief power-broker of the Democrat Party, the 5-and-a-half foot foul-mouthed Israeli named Rahm, is the son of terrorist – a real living terrorist.

Rahm's father, Benjamin, was a member of the Irgun, the Zionist terrorist organization that coined a new word as they blew up hotels, train stations, and other buildings in Palestine in the 1930s and 40s.

Irgun, the army of his father, is short for Irgun Zvai Leumi, which supposedly means something like "National Military Organization" in Hebrew. As a matter of fact, the Irgun was simply a terrorist Zionist group that operated in Palestine from 1931 to 1948. They killed innocent Palestinians and British soldiers and blew up buildings.

Too bad for people like me who live in Illinois which is controlled by the Mayor of Chicago.

G_D help Chicago. It just shows how corrupt our country has become, he didn't even live there, pays off or threatens a bunch of people, and presto, he becomes the mayor.

I had the same thought. Wasn't there someone here on ATS recently with a big thread that mentioned Chicago as a potential target?

Do stupid people move to big cities, or do smart people move out leaving the stupid?

I see not much difference between him and any other politician.
I don't think it's going to make much of a difference one way or another.
Certainly an improvement over Blagojevich.

You guys are talking like the guy drinks the blood of newly born kittens.

Don't you think it's being a bit dramatic?

You obviously don't know Illinois law very well.


And to all the people saying Rahm is a bad bad person and that this is so bad for Chicago.....could you provide some examples to his "badness"????

We'll see exactly what we are predicting here by the way he handles two important subjects. The latest gun control suits brought against the city, all of which have been ruled on against Chicago and the higher taxes he is surely going to ask for and force on Chicago's citizens! I can predict one for sure. He'll thumb his nose (again) at SCOTUS on any further decisions against Chicago's unworkable gun laws!

Brother, I hope you can move out of there soon.
My prayers are with the people of Chicago.
I wonder what ManCow has to say about this?

I kind of like the fact that ignorant conservatives are scared of Chicago.

Please stay away, it is as bad as you heard
