Skip to comments.Seattle Mayor Wants Judge to Reverse Decision [semi-satire]

King County Superior Court Judge Mary Roberts' decision to allow a recall petition to go forward has Mayor Jenny Durkan (D) riled. Since it was the police use of tear gas to disperse a mob that inspired the petition, Durkan contends that "it is Police Chief Carmen Best who is really to blame. Look, I did everything I could to aid those disrupting the city. I ordered the police to leave them alone. I even ceded a bit of real estate for them to proclaim their autonomous zone. Chief Best went against my orders. It is unfair that I be recalled. Can't I just fire Best?"
Judge Roberts said that "it is not my job to determine who is at fault. A recall is a political act. My role is strictly confined to whether the petition fits within the legal requirements. It does. If the petition gathers enough signatures a recall election will be held."
Durkan is now said to be considering a city-wide stay-at-home order. "They need to get 50,000 signatures on the petition to force the issue to a ballot," the Mayor observed. "If I make everyone stay home for the next few months there'll be no way they can reach that number. And with COVID cases surging, it's my duty to keep everyone indoors for their own good anyway. So it may be a win-win outcome for me."

Ain’t my fault Ain’t my fault Ain’t my fault
This stoopid,Mayor Jenny Durkan of Seattle will go down in the history books as the WORST mayor of the year. Even worse than Mayor DeBlasio of N.Y. and he is Really bad.
Both deserve concrete shoes and thrown in to their respective harbors.
She is such a deep thinker! How can we go against such wisdom?(S)
