Seattle City Councilmember Kshama Sawant to defy council order pausing Amazon tax discussion


If Seattle city councilmember Kshama Sawan convenes an online meeting tonight as planned she'll violate a number of city and state laws so one says she's going to go ahead anyway couples Corwin hate has more the meeting someone has scheduled for tonight again takes up the proposal to tax Amazon and other corporations to fund affordable housing these companies are the richest in our city many are the richest people in the world and they can pay she's going ahead with the meeting in spite of opposition from council leaders who say it violates governor Jay Inslee's ban on public meetings virtual or otherwise that don't address the covert nineteen crisis S. so on fires back the governor's order itself is legal because the governor does not have the right to tell city council what they can and cannot discuss and vote on plus she says the housing crisis is a covert issue no other council member has agreed to attend so once meeting a meeting without enough council members to make a quorum is also a rules violation
