Judge Approves Petition to Recall Democrat Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan After CHOP Fiasco


Jenny Durkan's days as mayor of Seattle could be numbered.

After the CHAZ / CHOP fiasco that upended life in Seattle for several weeks, a petition to recall Mayor Jenny Durkan gained incredible momentum.

Now, a judge has approved the petition, allowing the recall of Seattle Mayor Durkan to move forward.

The recall effort, known as "Fire the Mayor," will now need to get 50,000 signatures from Seattle voters to force a special election.

If that threshold is met, then there will be a special election in which Mayor Durkan could get "chopped" from office.

The petitioners have 180 days to collect valid signatures.
