We’ve assembled a powerhouse panel this week to discuss the Rahm Emanuael Residency Question. It happens that we finished taping the show a few hours before the unanimous Supreme Court decision returning Emanuel to the ballot. But the show’s still really interesting to watch, and here’s why.
Our special guest is Joe Morris, the hearing officer who conducted the Board of Elections hearings a few weeks ago – and concluded that Emanuel should be on the ballot. It’s his finding that the Supreme Court upheld overwhelmingly.
Our other panelists are Chicago Reporter Publisher Alden Loury and Tribune columnist/blogger Eric Zorn.
The panel was aware that a decision was imminent, and there was a detailed discussion of the actual issues facing the court. We also talked briefly about some of the issues that simply aren’t being addressed by any of the candidates – such as disproportionate minority unemployment.
