“The issue is currently headed to the Washington Supreme Court in January after an appeal from Sawant”
Seattle City Council member Kshama Sawant is an openly radical Democrat Socialist who is partly responsible for the sad state the city finds itself in today.
During the unrest over the summer, Sawant reportedly let a mob of protesters into city hall after hours, and participated in a march to the mayor’s home. Now she is facing a recall effort.

Seattle’s socialist councilwoman in bitter recall fight
A bitter political battle has broken out in Seattle where one of the city’s councilmembers is facing a recall effort led by residents who expressed dismay over her conduct during recent protests.
On Thursday, Seattle resident Ernest Lou made his case again for the recall effort, which he based on four specific charges relating to how Councilwoman Kshama Sawant. allegedly abused her office. Specifically, Lou alleges that Sawant let protesters into City Hall during a nighttime protest and spoke at another demonstration in front of the Democratic Mayor Jenny Durkan’s house.
The issue is currently headed to the Washington Supreme Court in January after an appeal from Sawant, a socialist.
Sawant’s legal team argued that the charges were “factually and legally insufficient.” According to Seattle P-I, attorney Dmitri Iglitzin accused Lou of engaging in a politicized attack. “You can’t convert political disagreement into a recall,” Iglitzin said. In September, Seattle’s city council voted to pay legal fees for Sawant, whose private lawyers reportedly cost $75,000.
Think about every crazy thing that has transpired in the northwest over the last six months. Sawant likely supported all of it, and may have even been behind some of it.
She is supposed to be looking out for the city of Seattle but is far more interested in overthrowing capitalism.
She also played a key role in the demonization of police in Seattle.
According to Jason Rantz of KTTH Radio, Sawant is getting significant financial support in her recall case from out-of-state:
Socialist Seattle CM Kshama Sawant takes big, out-of-state dollars to fight recall
Seattle’s divisive Socialist city councilwoman Kshama Sawant is raking in big dollars from out-of-state donors trying to save the firebrand’s political career.
Sawant is sitting on roughly $100,000 in donations as she faces recall over a number of misconduct allegations. Normally, she rails against outside interests trying to interfere with her district. This time, she’ll happily cash those checks…
As of Dec. 1, 33 individual donors gave $1,000 to the Kshama Solidarity Campaign, according to filings with the Seattle Ethics and Elections Commission. Over half of those donors live outside of her district, and 13 out of state.
In contrast to Sawant’s donor base, the Recall Sawant effort saw 82% of their contributions from Seattle residents.
Getting Sawant out of office won’t solve Seattle’s far-left problems, but it would be a good start.DONATE
