Rahm Decision Today
Chicago elections commissioners are scheduled to vote Thursday on whether mayoral candidate Rahm Emanuel will remain on the ballot.
The three-member elections board won't have a lot of time to consider a recommendation from Joseph Morris, the hearing officer on the highly publicized case. For the second day in a row, Morris did not release his recommendation, and a man who answered the phone at his law office said not to expect one Wednesday night.
No matter how the Chicago Board of Election Commissioners votes, it's not expected to have the final say. The losing side has a week to appeal the board's decision to the Cook County Circuit Court. The case could take weeks to wind its way through the court system, including the Illinois Court of Appeals and the Illinois Supreme Court.
