Illinois Legislators Consider Precedent-Setting Recall to Oust Mayor Rahm Emanuel

The Chicago mayor and former Obama chief of staff who likes to talk and act tough may have found himself with his back against a wall. With pressure mounting over a recent string of police shootings, Illinois legislators might now consider allowing voters to recall Rahm Emanuel, ousting him from office.  The Associated Press reports that at present, state law only allows for recalls of governors, but now state Rep. La Shawn Ford, a fellow Democrat, has expressed his desire to  extend that recall power to the office of mayor.
