Socialist city councilmember Kshama Sawant is facing a potential recall from Seattle residents after a judge ruled on Wednesday that there was enough evidence for several charges leveled against her to proceed.
King County Judge Jim Rogers upheld four of the six charges brought by the petitioner Ernest Lou, saying in his order that Lou acknowledged the other two were "legally insufficient."
Those included allegations that Sawant, a controversial figure in the ongoing protests, had encouraged protesters to occupy the city's East precinct and helped create the notorious Capitol Hill Occupation Protest (CHOP) zone.
