Chicago, Emanuel and the Daleys

The big news from Chicago was that former White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel was thrown off the ballot for Chicago mayor because he didn't live in the city in the year before the election.

Of course, the incumbent Mayor of Chicago Richard Daley previously timed the announcement of his retirement to benefit the incumbent White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel. Next, Rahm Emanuel resigned as White House chief of staff to run for Mayor of Chicago. Finally, the Mayor's brother Bill Daley was appointed to replace Emanuel as the new White House chief of staff.

You would think this corrupt attempt at an insider job swap would be the big news.
