- Rahm says, “Don’t forget that you voted for me!”
This just in—Mayor Rahm Emanuel did not win last year’s mayoral election and he isn’t, therefore, our mayor!
By my calculation, that race should have gone into a runoff between the two top vote getters: Gery Chico and Miguel del Valle.
I’m not sure why the official results had Emanuel getting over 50 percent of the vote.
I say this because of the reaction to a recent post in which I chided teachers in particular and Chicagoans in general for electing Emanuel. The response was overwhelming. As in—we didn’t vote for him!
So, if so many people say they didn’t vote for him, I guess he must have lost. Quick—search the City Hall basement for missing ballots.
