Remove Kshama Sawant Seattle city council woman for abuse of power!

  • by: CC.
  • recipient: Mayor Ed Murray

Kshama Sawant is not respecting the will of the people. She's using her platform to incite violence and call for protests and riots.   Our elected officials should be helping and bringing people together in our communities not promoting hate towards our democracy.  Whether you like the outcome or not of the election, we look upon our officials to follow the laws of this country.  Let's help bring people together and follow the laws to get things done not promote hate and dismay because this election did not go her way.  Let's send a message to our local Mayor that she should step down from her position or be impeached.  It is not appropriate for elected officials to call for protests.

"Whoever incites, sets on foot, assists, or engages in any rebellion or insurrection against the authority of the United States or the laws thereof, or gives aid or comfort thereto, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States." 18 U.S. Code Section 2383...

Upon the election of Donald J Trump to the office of president, Councilmember Kshama Sawant began advocating massive protests against the Democratically elected Donald Trump. She also called for a complete "shut down" of the United States on Inauguration Day. The footage can be seen at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=89sf_i0B-48.


Just hours after Ms Sawant's speech was uploaded to the internet, protests, some violent, began occurring. This is not the first time Ms. Sawant has been involved in embarrassing scandal.


In 2013, she was arrested for interfering with a legal eviction being carried out by the King County Sheriff - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dIZzqujX_jg. In 2014, she was arrested for participating in a disorderly protest over minimum wage - http://q13fox.com/2014/11/19/seattle-city-councilwoman-sawant-3-others-arrested-at-protest-over-lawsuit-to-block-15-wage/.


In 2015, she was arrested for Disorderly Conduct - http://www.kiro7.com/news/councilmember-kshama-sawant-charged-disorderly-con/82075814.


Now she's advocating the impediment of a presidential election. As a government official in the state of Washington, Ms Sawant swore to "support the Constitution of the United States". By refusing to acknowledge the legitimate outcome of the presidential election and by further attempting to incite dissent, Ms Sawant is violating her oath as a Councilmember. As she clearly has no respect for the Constitution of the United States or the laws of this nation, she is not fit to hold an office whose sworn duty is to protect such. It is our, the petitioner's, request that Ms Kshama Sawant be removed from the office of City Council.


"Whoever incites, sets on foot, assists, or engages in any rebellion or insurrection against the authority of the United States or the laws thereof, or gives aid or comfort thereto, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States." 18 U.S. Code Section 2383...
