Recall petition has an impressive 700 signatures
West University Place councilwoman Kellye Burke was charged with disorderly conduct after she yelled obscenities at a Trump shirt wearing teenage girl. It’s worth noting that Burke is also a Mom’s Demand Action activist.
The girl and her friends were waiting in line at a bake shop when Burke yelled, “Grab her by the p**** girls!” and “MAGA!” repeatedly, according the girls.
She later issued one the worst sorry, not sorry apologies ever, saying:
“I have repeatedly apologized for the bad judgment I used and making the statement I did, but I do not believe repeating the words of the president of the United States is a crime.
However, I will apologize again on behalf of myself, the president of the united states and all the media outlets who repeated his words both electronically and in print.”
A few weeks after the incident, the misdemeanor charge has been dismissed.
From local news:
The misdemeanor case against West University Place city councilwoman Kellye Burke has been dismissed, according to Harris County Justice of the Peace Court 1.
“I don’t have any comment, thank you though,” Burke’s attorney David Adler said when asked about the dismissal.
Harris County Constable’s office initially charged Burke with disorderly conduct abusive/vulgar language, a class C misdemeanor.
Burke allegedly yelled, “Grab her by the p**** girls!” at a group of teenage girls, one of whom was wearing a “Trump: Make America Great Again” T-shirt. Burke and the girls were in line at Tiny’s Milk and Cookies in West U.
The girls also said she yelled “MAGA! MAGA!” at them while shaking her fist. MAGA is an acronym for “Making America Great Again,” President Donald Trump’s campaign slogan. The girls left without responding and were terrified, according to the father of one of the girls.
Burke initially apologized to the parents of one of the girls, they said.
She then pleaded not guilty to the charge and asked for a jury trial, which was scheduled for August. On Monday, the judge dismissed the case.
Burke’s actions prompted a handful of citizens to begin petitioning for a recall election. So far, they’ve received a whopping 700 signatures.DONATE
