People on both sides of the political divide are unhappy with Mayor Jenny Durkan of Seattle. People on the right are angry about her lack of response to the far left. The far left is angry that she allowed police to do anything in response to the rioting.
A petition to recall her has received enough signatures to proceed.
She is now in a fight for her political life.
FOX News reports:
Seattle mayor appeals recall decision that could see her removed from office
Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan asked the state Supreme Court to reverse the decision of a King County circuit court judge that allowed a recall effort to move forward against her, which could result in her expulsion from office.
Durkan, a Democrat, was called out by five Seattle residents who filed a petition seeking to recall her because of how law enforcement officials have responded to protests this summer, according to The Seattle Times.
Durkan reportedly asked the circuit court judge to reconsider the decision, but the request was denied.
The state’s highest court is now being asked to render judgment after a notice of appeal was filed on Wednesday, The Times reported.
The petitioners in turn asked the state Supreme Court to reconsider two of the charges the judge initially dismissed and to broaden their original charges against Durkan.
The Seattle Times has more:
King County Superior Court Judge Mary Roberts has twice allowed the petition to go forward. Of the seven charges filed by the petitioners, Roberts initially dismissed six, but allowed one to go forward “more narrowly than alleged.”
Durkan asked Roberts to reconsider. Roberts declined.
Now Durkan is asking the state’s highest court to weigh in. Her notice of appeal, filed Wednesday, contains no new arguments. It just asks the Supreme Court to reconsider Roberts’ decision.
Kelsey Nyland, a Durkan spokesperson, said the mayor would remain focused on her job during the appeal process.
“In the midst of unprecedented challenges for the city, Mayor Durkan has consistently acted to protect the public health and safety of residents during the pandemic, economic devastation, and demonstrations for justice,” Nyland said.
The crazy leftists of Seattle will probably try to put in someone even worse.
Dark days are ahead for the city if nothing changes.
