Renter to Testify at Emanuel's Residency Hearing

CHICAGO — A woman who rented Rahm Emanuel's house after he became President Barack Obama's chief of staff is scheduled to testify at a hearing about whether his name should be on the ballot in the race for Chicago mayor.

Emanuel endured nearly 12 hours of questioning Tuesday from attorneys and Chicago residents who say he's not eligible to run for mayor. The challengers say he does not meet the requirement that candidates live in the city a full year before the election because he moved back to the city less than five months before the February election.

Lori Halpin is scheduled to testify Wednesday. Halpin and her husband made headlines when they refused Emanuel's request to break the lease on the house so Emanuel could move back in.
