The Washington State Supreme Court ruled that after appealing to stop the movement, the strike action against the socialist Seattle City Councilman Kshama Sawant can continue.
Sawant was accused of abusing her position and betraying her role as a board member.
The famous socialist Sawant described the recall as a right-wing attack. She did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.
Her campaign Twitter account shared a fundraising message on Thursday, accusing the recall effort of being supported by an unnamed “right-wing” billionaire and “corporate elite.”
The movement declared: “The Seattle corporate elite is determined to recall Keshamar and push City Hall to the right.”
She allegedly led hundreds of protesters into the city hall an hour later and was accused of meeting another group of protesters in the home of Seattle Mayor Jeanne Durkan.

A spokesperson for Durkan’s office did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment. But at the time, the mayor said that Suowang’s actions put her children in danger and the protesters destroyed her home.
Thornte is also accused of misusing city resources and failing to meet public disclosure requirements.
Washington law states that the recall effort can only move forward when officials “committed a certain act or malfeasance” or violated an oath. This means that at least one accusation needs to be maintained or the campaign will fail. Initially there were six, but two were deprived by lower courts.

Her legal team has appealed against the remaining four people and argued that these allegations are “inadequate in practice and law” to support the recall.
The state supreme court mostly disagreed with this statement, but it refused to support Sawant’s allegations of violating social employment rules because it gave the socialist political group powers over the dismissal decision.
Ernest Lou, the lawyer who presided over the removal petition, argued in court documents that voters should be given a chance to weigh Sawan’s actions in the removal vote.

According to the Seattle Times, this work still requires the collection of 10,000 signatures in the Sawant area within the next 180 days.
