Live Like Rahm (When He Was a Renter)

By Chuck Sudo in News on Aug 31, 2011 6:40PM


Remember the Halcyon days when Mayor Emanuel was still Candidate Emanuel and we watched as the sturm und drang about his residency status built to a point where the Illinois Supreme Court finally stepped in and said, "Get over it! He can run for mayor."

Those were the good old days.

Anyway, Emanuel set up temporary digs in a West Loop loft condo two floors above noted food writer Michael Nagrant. Nagrant's hoping some of the mayor's time in his building can be the magic he needs to sell his own condo. He set up a website, Live Like Rahm! and he's hoping some of the Emanuel Pixie dust can help him sell the condo quick in this depressed housing market.

(Full Disclosure: Over the years I've come to call Michael Nagrant a friend.)
