(Newser) – Rahm Emanuel is not happy about the report that he’s leaving the White House after the midterm elections. “This is BS. And if you need it for translation, it is baseless,” the White House chief of staff said in a statement today. Rumors have circulated that Emanuel might leave for family reasons, but sources tell Politics Daily he’s now making plans to move his family to DC.

But Emanuel still might nix those plans if Richard Daley decides not to run for reelection, because Emanuel hasn’t been coy about wanting the Chicago mayor’s job. Daley says he won’t announce any plans until after November’s elections.
