Rahm Emanuel’s attorney quickly filed a motion with the Illinois Supreme court to stay the order and the court agreed. The Supremes (the nickname of the Illinois Supreme Court) then ruled by an unanimous 7-0, that Rahm Emanuel did not forfeit his residency by serving the president. This closure of the residency issue occurred on January 27, 2011. Remaining on the ballot: Rahm Emanuel, Gery Chico, Carol Moseley Braun, Miguel Del Valle, William “Doc” Walls III, and Patricia Watkins.
