Rules of the Game

So he wakes up one morning and decides a city that previously wasn't good enough to live in or pay taxes in or vote in is now lucky enough to have him as its mayor. People will see through that, no matter how much money he raises, just as they see through the pathetic move by some legislators to screw him over.

Mosbacher has played by the rules. All they require is that he post an address in the city six months before the filing deadline to be on the ballot, and he's reportedly done that. Like Burge and Lanier, the lawmakers trying to keep Mosbacher from running must have missed a fundamental lesson: When you bend a rule to give one person special treatment, all of the other rules are rendered meaningless.

Any kid can tell you that.
