Washington Supreme Court rules to move forward with Sawant recall

by A.V. Eichenbaum - SGN Associate Editor

The Washington State Supreme Court decided Thursday that a recall effort of Seattle Councilwoman Kshama Sawant can move forward. The Councilwoman is being recalled by right-wing detractors, whose petition charges her with breaking COVID guidelines by allowing protestors into City Hall last summer, using city funds to promote the Tax Amazon ballot initiative, giving political power to Socialists Alternative through hiring decisions, and leading a protest march to Mayor Durkan's home.

The Court ruled that three of the charges against Sawant were legally sound, but found that there was not enough legal evidence to the claim that Sawant gave political power to Socialists Alternative.

The charges, by law, must represent "misfeasance, malfeasance or violation of the oath of office." The WSCC, in this case, did not decide whether Sawant was guilty of these transgressions, but on whether or not there was sufficient evidence to continue with the recall on this basis.

Recall petitioners have 180 days to gather over 10,000 signatures from residents of Sawant's Council District 3. If they reach the number of signatures required, a recall election of Kshama Sawant will be held this coming autumn.
