See Resolution to Censure State Senators Rodney Tom and Tim Sheldon
Article I, §33 of the Washington Constitution says that a recall can only occur if the targeted public official has engaged in the “commission of some act or acts of malfeasance or misfeasance while in office, or who has violated his oath of office.”
This requirement has proven difficult to meet. A 2010 effort to initiate a recall campaign against members of the Seattle School Board after the board received a bad audit from the Washington State Auditor came to naught when a judge ruled that this constituted insufficient grounds under the state’s constitution for a recall.
I know, I’ve read that, but who cares? I think we should flood the rotunda to call for his ouster and end austerity. I think it’s important to call for what we want, not just ask what the rules limiting our agency say. I don’t think anything good will come out of the legislature this session.
I think Rodney should be recalled. Forget about the official rules, we don’t want him any more. Remember that the Democratic establishment put him in office.
Time to gather in the rotunda!
