Washington: Seattle Mayor facing recall threats

Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan is facing recall threats over the police reaction to the protests surrounding the killing of George Floyd. Petitioners would need over 54,000 signatures to get on the ballot (25% of turnout). Since Washington is a malfeasance standard state, there would need to be a showing of cause that meets the statutory definition. As we've seen, this is a high bar.

Councilmember Kshama Sawant has threatened impeachment as well.
