"WASHINGTON---White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel--expected to step down this week to launch a run for mayor of Chicago--tried and failed to persuade his tenant in his Chicago home to move out so Emanuel could move back in, reports my Sun-Times colleague Michael Sneed.The city requirement seems to be fulfilled with regard to the residency requirement. He owns a home in the city, had voted absentee and has maintend status as a resident working out-of-town.
Here's my update, from a souce (sic) close to Emanuel: 'It's clearly an inconvenience for Rahm and for the current tenants--but it is what it is. That said, as this news has spread in Chicago, Rahm has received some really great offers on places to stay.'
Emanuel rented his North Side Chicago home from Sept. 1, 2009 to Sept. 1, 2010--and signed an extension until June, 2011 just six days before Daley announced on Sept. 7 that he would not seek another term.
Reports Sneed: The tenant, Robert Halpin,' who described himself as an industrial real estate developer in the midst of heading to Louisville on business Monday, told Sneed: 'Look, according to the lease I am not allowed to speak to the media about the house.
'But I can tell you I have no plans to move.'"
