Judge rules recall effort can proceed against socialist Seattle city council member for her support of BLM protests

Judge rules recall effort can proceed against socialist Seattle city council member for her support of BLM protests
A group of Seattle residents are trying to recall a far left socialist member of the city council for her efforts in helping Black Lives Matter protests, and a judge decided on Wednesday that they could proceed.

King County Superior Court Judge Jim Rogers found that four of the six charges against Sawant met the standard to allow the recall process to continue. "The petitioner has shown actual knowledge of facts indicating that the Councilmember intended to commit an unlawful act," said Rogers.
Among the charges that he said were unfounded was a claim that Sawant had helped create the storied CHOP, or Capitol Hill Occupation Protest zone.
Organizers need to collect 10,000 signatures in order to put the recall effort on the ballot.
Sawant said that she planned to appeal the ruling.
In July, Sawant appeared on a video where she excoriated capitalism and vowed to replace it with socialism.
"We are coming to dismantle this deeply oppressive, racist, sexist, violent, utterly bankrupt system of capitalism. This police state. We cannot and will not stop until we overthrow it, and replace it with a world based, instead, on solidarity, genuine democracy, and equality: a socialist world," said Sawant.

Here's a local news video about the ruling:
