As Rahm Emanuel returns from Washington to take his new seat as Chicago’s mayor, the family who have been occupying his house plan to move out in June.
Former White House Chief of Staff and now Mayor of Chicago, Rahm Emanuel, rented out his home in Ravenswood to Rob Halpin, also known as “Rahm’s renter,” and his family for $5,000 a month. However, when Emanuel returned to Chicago to run for mayor, the family did not move out of the house.
Halpin recently told the Chicago Tribune that he is “looking for some place to move.” Previously, he had claimed to prefer to stay in the house but the real estate developer declined to comment on what changed his mind. The family’s lease on the house ends in June.
The challenges presented in Emanuel’s residency were based on his lease. The Illinois Supreme Court sided with Emanuel.
