Rahm Emanuel Found Ineligible To Run For Chicago Mayor

The hopes of Rahm Emanuel, the front-runner in next month's mayor's race in Chicago, now rest with the Illinois Supreme Court. Monday, an appellate court ruled that Emanuel lost his city residency when he worked in Washington as President Obama's Chief of Staff — a post he resigned from in October. Tuesday, the state's highest court issued a stay on that ruling, and ordered that no ballots be printed without Emanuel's name. Host Michel Martin talks with Chicago Sun-Times columnist Mary Mitchell and Maria de los Angeles Torres, of the University of Illinois to find out what may happen next.
