As you all know, Rahm Emanuel is preparing to return to Chicago to launch his mayoral bid.
One problem: The tenant leasing Emanuel’s Windy City home isn’t planning on moving anywhere.
Chicago Sun-Times columnist Michael Sneed reports:
It’s Chicago politics at its best.
Sneed hears an effort by Chicago mayoral hopeful Rahm Emanuel to move back into his North Side home next month was axed by the man who leased it.
• The kicker: Sneed also hears rumbles there was a nixed request for Rahm to move into the basement of his leased home if the tenant didn’t move out.
• To wit: Emanuel, the White House chief of staff, who has been in the process of quickly building a network to run for mayor — had been trying to move back into his leased home at 4228 N. Hermitage.
• The upshot: Sneed has learned the tenant, Robert “Rob” P. Halpin, 59, who holds the lease with his wife, Lori, until June 2011, refused to budge.
Maybe Rosa DeLauro and Stan Greenberg have a Chicago pad?
Not to worry, though. Privileged Democrats always find a way to get their housing problems fixed.
