  •  Hmm, yes and no. (0+ / 0-)

    You're exactly right that the whole point of legal residency is prevent people from facing statelessness.  Everyone's gotta get to vote somewhere.

    However, nobody is saying Rahm isn't a resident of Chicago. The majority is saying that "being a resident of Chicago" and "residing in Chicago" are two different things.

    I know. It gives me a headache, too.

    I'm pretty sure the Illinois Supreme Court is going to rule for Rahm on this one, and I think the dissent had the much better reading of the statute.
