Skip to comments.Kshama Sawant files appeal with state Supreme Court over recall petition

In the wake of a judge allowing a recall petition against Seattle Councilmember Kshama Sawant to move into the signature gathering phase, Sawant has filed an appeal in hopes of overturning the ruling.
Sawant filed the appeal with the Washington State Supreme Court on Oct. 2. King County Judge Jim Rogers had ruled on Sept. 17 that a recall petition filed by Ernest Lou could move forward, upholding four of six charges levied by Lou.
Judge Rogers dismissed two charges, which had claimed that Sawant encouraged the occupation of the Seattle Police Departments East Precinct, and that she helped to create the CHOP. The four charges he upheld included those related to Sawant opening Seattle City Hall during an evening march in June, and leading a protest to Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkans home.
If the state Supreme Court confirms the lower court ruling, Lou would have to collect just over 10,700 certified paper signatures from registered voters, a number that would constitute 25% of total votes cast in the last District 3 election.
That would then trigger a simple yes or no recall vote, which would have to take place on a previously scheduled election date. If Lou gathers enough signatures in time, the earliest possible date for a recall vote would be a special election on Feb. 9, 2021.
