Rahm Emanuel Has a Times Vending Machine in His Crawl Space


What you’re looking at is a photo of a crawl space in Rahm Emanuel’s Chicago home, the one he rented out when he became President Obama’s chief of staff and moved to Washington. Emanuel’s lawyer took photos of the crawl space, full of Emanuel family property, to prove that Emanuel never really “moved” out of his house, and has actually been a Chicago “resident” all this time. One interesting find in the photos: Remember the day after Obama was inaugurated, when everyone wanted to get a copy of the Times? Emanuel got one — and he somehow managed to take the entire Times vending machine it was in, too.
