Opponents Hit Emanuel Where He Lives
In an interview, Mr. Odelson said state law requires candidates to be residents of Chicago for one year prior to the election. Because the election is on Feb. 22, 2011, Mr. Emanuel needed to have access to his house as of Feb. 22, 2010. But he rented his house to Mr. Halpin five months before that. If Mr. Emanuel hadn't rented his home and maintained access to it—as Mr. Obama does with a house on Chicago's South Side—, "he would be golden," Mr. Odelson said.
