SEATTLE — A King County Superior Court judge has approved a petition for an election to recall Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan.

The Seattle Times reports the ruling Friday on charges filed by a group of five people last month comes after weeks of local protests against racism and police brutality - sparked by the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis.

Once any recall petition is approved, signatures are needed to qualify for a special election ballot. The petitioners must, within 180 days, collect valid signatures from a number of voters equal to 25% of the votes cast in the last election. In this case, signatures from more than 50,000 Seattle voters would be needed.

Someone of the same ilk will take her place, seems kind of pointless.

Someone significantly worse than her will take her place, one of the horrid council members who is MUCH further to the left.

Couldn't agree more, recalling her will probably backfire.

The way I see it every Caucasian councilman, mayor, govenor, house member, senator, who supports BLM should step down immediately to allow a minority the ability to hold that position. San Fran, NYC, Seattle, Baltimore, Detroit, Chicago, etc... LFG.

Can’t have it both ways. There is no room for compromise.

Guys, let’s allow for a little optimism. Things may gradually start to turn around. If someone is starting a recall then it would stand to reason at least someone is willing to TRY to turn things around. If it backfires then I would say MOVE out of these God forsaken places. You can at least vote with your feet. Why stay in a hopeless situation???

They're trying to recall her for not being a radical enough liberal...

It's Seattle, all hope is lost, sometimes it's better to just accept fate and be realistic.

Depends on the definition of backfire. The more examples of leftist failures, the better.

Hopefully most view it as a failure.

If they won't learn a lesson then they're doomed regardless.

Let it happen....

re: Judge approves petition to recall Seattle mayor
Unfortunately it does some like the petitioners who are creating the recall request are further to the left than even the mayor
