      You’re joking right? Emanuel bought his way in. Emanuel left the White House to be mayor of Chicago, such a sham, he didn’t even live in Chicago! He was in Washington! But Rahm has a few powerful friends and his residency wasn’t an issue anymore. Karen has the support of every public employee, teacher, officer and firefighter. Emanuel has…who? Hopefully Karen drums up even more support and gets the whole city behind her so even Emanuel trying to buy his way in again wouldn’t be enough.
