An effort to recall Seattle City Council member Kshama Sawant is gaining
Over 9,800 people have electronically supported an online petition that
is circling. It launched after the socialist councilmember urged people
to protest the election of Donald Trump on his inauguration day January
The group wants to send a message to Seattle Mayor Ed Murray that Sawant
should be impeached because they believe it's not appropriate for
elected officials to call for protests.

The online petition reads:

"Kshama Sawant is not respecting the will of the people. She's using her
platform to incite violence and call for protests and riots.   Our
elected officials should be helping and bringing people together in our
communities not promoting hate towards our democracy.  Whether you like
the outcome or not of the election, we look upon our officials to follow
the laws of this country.  Let's help bring people together and follow
the laws to get things done not promote hate and dismay because this
election did not go her way.  Let's send a message to our local Mayor
that she should step down from her position or be impeached.  It is not
appropriate for elected officials to call for protests."
