This is in the Illinois Code of Civil Procedure, found here, and states in part that:

    Too bad this doesn’t apply to the office of the U.S. President.

    I hope the judge in this case just tosses her butt out of there, then slaps a $25k fine on her!! She never did live in the city while running or since elected!! More typical Marshall arrogance…stupid biotch.

    When are the people in public offices going to start to get the message that we are sick and tired of their abuse of power and the frivelous spending of our tax dollars. That we are going to fight back to stop this power trip they seem to want to stay on. Come on tax payers, let’s get the message to these people that we will fight back. They need to understand that many of them were elected to their offices and if they screw up we will vote them out of office at the next election which for some will be in November.
