Daley off the Ballot?
Don't bet the mortgage payment on it. This is still C(r)ook County, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Daley Machine. Still, it's amusing to see the media in a panic:
- Elections officials will review about 19,000 signatures on nominating petitions filed by Mayor Richard M. Daley to get on the ballot for next month's election. Supporters of one of Daley's challengers have questioned the validity of the signatures to try to knock Daley out of the Feb. 27 election.
- Daley's campaign submitted nearly 28,900 signatures. Of those, 9,000 signatures were not objected to, which means Daley needs about 3,500 more signatures to pass muster to make it onto the ballot.
Entertaining, yes. Reason to celebrate? Not a chance. Or at least, not yet.
