Does Rahm Emanuel Meet Residency Requirement for Chicago Mayor's Race?

A discussion on the Roe Conn show, about Chicago residency requirements for running for office, this hour is quite interesting.

The basics:
You must be reside in Chicago for twelve months before the election. The requirement is different than for voting in Chicago, Illinois. Voters need only be registered to vote there and have an address there, even if they are away from the city, like in Washington, DC. However, there is a law (specific citation not given) that has been on the books since the 1800s requiring mayoral candidates to actually live in Chicago for 12 months before the election. There was some discussion of the terminology in the law.
