The Recall Jenny Durkan campaign to remove the Democrat mayor of Seattle is underway after getting a King County Superior Court judge’s approval. Mayor Durkan was the individual who said CHAZ was an acceptable form of protest, even calling it a “summer of love” right up until the mob came to her $7m mansion. Never mind the deaths, the violence, destruction of private property, rapes, forcing whites to pay blacks $10 and demanding a whole host of supplies from the very democracy they wanted to overthrow. Our posts on Durkan can be seen here.
We view this as a good benchmark for anti-Democrat sentiment, especially given that Seattle and Washington are hard core blue states. Hillary Clinton garnered 52.5% of the vote vs Trump’s 36.8% in the 2016 election. Durkan won 56.25% of the 2017 mayoral election.
The Recall Durkan website notes,
“Mayor Durkan’s complete negligence in protecting the rights and safety of the people of Seattle has made a clear case that she is no longer fit to govern.
Together, let’s keep making history and #FireTheMayor…
…For our petition to elicit a recall, the petitioners will need 56,202 physical signatures.”
Over 36,000 have signed the change.org petition in the two days it has been approved.
Surely there are enough centre-of-the-road Democrats with common sense to join the movement to oust such an out of touch elected official.
