Washington: State Supreme Court upholds ruling tossing out Yakima City Councilmember recall

The Washington Supreme Court has upheld a ruling tossing out the recall effort against Yakima City Councilmember Jason White after he called for resisting state and federal social distancing guidelines and called for people to "take off your masks!" The other Yakima councilmembers voted to censure White, who has not attended the last three council meetings. The Superior Court had held that White's actions did not meet the state's malfeasance standard/judicial recall to get on the ballot.

Update: Here's a copy of the ruling
