SEATTLE - A Seattle man claims he was fired for launching a recall effort against City Councilmember Kshama Sawant.
Ernie Lou said was "crushed" after he was fired from his contractor job with Three Dollar Bill Cinema after putting together a website and raising money for a Sawant recall effort earlier this month.
"She is the leftist version of the right-wing version of Trump," he said. "She's a cancer in Seattle."
Lou said he was fed up after recent demonstrations, which included a sit-in at City Hall and march to the home of Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan.
Those are just two of six charges he levels against the sitting council member in his long-shot effort to recall her.
"She was leading the protestors. She was egging them on. That's not her role," he said.
Lou said the effort has raised $30,000, although the city's Public Disclosure Commission shows no donations have been reported.
He is asking for donations for less than $25, which he said is to make sure there is a grassroots effort to unseat Sawant. However, Seattle Municipal Code also allows for those types of donations to be made without the sender having to provide a name, address, employer, or typical reporting procedures.
Not long after Lou started the website, he said he was told that his services were no longer needed at Three Dollar Bill Cinema and it was all related to his recall push.

$3 bill cinema?
She should ‘ be recalled’ alright....
Why we tolerate those we do in this country is beyond me .
It’s like we are helpless , powerless, sheep
Not sure what that means. Maybe he supported the impeachment process too.
Three Dollar Bill Cinema’s mission is to strengthen, connect, and reflect diverse communities through queer film and media. We will continue this work and do better to work towards a more equitable, pluralistic, and decolonization framework.
So, he’s a pee ter puffer, well, buddy you made your bed enjoy it.
Name said enough, or is that dintdonuffin
Welcome to Washington State politics......Socialists live by their own rules............
I recommend self employment.
I lost a job over politics a decade ago. Suffered through the brutality of the Obama election cycle in this particular workplace.
There are a lot of discriminatory practices people are protected from by law. Unfortunately, political party affiliation isn’t one of them. If they want to keep you from working a job they can.
This is why it is important to be industrious, imaginative, and entrepreneurial. Having a secondary skill to fall back on is going to be critical in the years ahead. And knowing who your friends are, who your trusted network is, and how to communicate off the internet.
"And we will do that by firing anyone who disagrees with us."
I was driven out of a job because I didn’t worship the wun.
Higher education is an area I don’t miss.
Wonder if she is a citizen? Bet not.
Firing people for their political views is standard communist/totalitarian method. We better get used to it in Bernies America. It goes well with the free education and healthcare, and with the lack of toilet paper. BTW the education and healthcare will be denied to the incorrect persons too!
Sounds like he was for her before he was against her.
“Three Dollar Bill Cinema”
No worries mate. With this COVID thing going round there should be plenty of jobs available for a glory-hole sanitizer.
It is one of the reasons as an employer now, I do background checks that include social media and a quick search for voting records.
