Court Rules Effort To Remove Socialist From Seattle City Council Over Role In Riots May Proceed

Kshama Sawant is a radical leftist and socialist who serves on the Seattle city council.

Last spring during the riots, Sawant allegedly let a mob of rioters into Seattle city hall. She apparently wanted to be part of the action.

Now people are trying to remove her from the council. She has taken legal steps to stop the effort but Washington’s highest court just ruled against her.

The Washington Examiner reports:

Effort to remove socialist councilmember accused of misconduct during Seattle riots can proceed, court rules

The Washington Supreme Court on Thursday ruled that the effort to remove a Seattle councilwoman, who was accused of allowing protesters into city hall during riots in the city, can proceed.

City official Kshama Sawant, a socialist, faced a recall after she purportedly “admitted hundreds of people into Seattle City Hall,” “led a protest march to Mayor Jenny Durkan’s private residence,” and “failed to comply with public disclosure requirements,” the court wrote.

Charges were “factually and legally sufficient for recall,” and the effort was allowed to continue, justices concluded.

The court did away with a charge that Sawant threatened or caused bodily harm to Durkan.

“While it is true that protestors defaced and damaged Mayor Durkan’s home, there is no support offered showing that Councilmember Sawant herself threatened to cause bodily injury or physical harm to property; or that she exhorted others to engage in such conduct,” the justices wrote.

Sawant is trying to paint the recall effort as a right wing conspiracy.

People have had enough of the radical left.

Even in Seattle.
