You know you done fucked up when even a judge thinks you should be impeached in a Blue state.
I would dearly love to see this piece of shit get dragged through the mud and THEN removed from office. Getting ruined politically would be a small step towards justice but we all know he would just disappear into the machine somewhere and keep right on working towards his goals and getting paid a handsome sum to do so.
Here’s a picture of the little weasel and our Governor, who should be next on the list, right behind him.
OLYMPIA, Wash. — The Chief Justice of the Washington Supreme Court has green lighted a hearing that could lead to a statewide recall vote of Washington Attorney General Bob Ferguson.
Scott Bannister of Yelm and Matthew Marshall of Roy filed the necessary paperwork for the recall with the Secretary of State on Dec. 16.
State law requires the Chief Justice to prepare a synopsis of the charges that will eventually appear as the ballot measure for voters statewide.
Chief Justice Mary Fairhurst has done that and since Bob Ferguson is a resident of King County, is asking King County Superior Court Judge Bill Bowman for “a determination of the sufficiency of recall charges” and approval of the ballot synopsis. That hearing will take place Jan. 10.
It’s more of a formality for Fairhurst to order the hearing, but it’s still a significant step in an effort by Bannister and Marshall to recall Ferguson.
“There’s a lot of people that aren’t very happy with him,” says Bannister. “If he’s not going to stand-up for the people, it’s not worth having him.”
The Army veteran is the president of God’s Portion food bank in Centralia.
“If they are committing treason as they all are, we can remove them,” says Bannister.
He is accusing Ferguson of two different incidents that warrant a recall.
In court documents, the pair say Ferguson actively campaigned for I-1639 in 2018. The initiative they say “deprived” Washington citizens aged 18-20 years of age of their right to purchase, possess, own or use semi-automatic assault rifles.
By campaigning for it, when Ferguson may be called upon to defend it in court, presented a conflict of interest and gave Ferguson “political capital for election to public office,” the challenge states. The initiative passed overwhelming by state voters.
“If we lose our guns, we are going to lose our republic,” says Bannister.
They also say Ferguson has a conflict of interest involving the $30 car tab initiative, I-976 which passed in November. Court documents says Ferguson’s office “failed to recuse itself” from defending I-976 in the recent court challenges trying to stop it from taking effect.
Ferguson is currently taking initiative sponsor Tim Eyman to court for campaign violations, therefore the attorney general has a conflict of interest when it comes to defending Eyman’s initiative in court,” according to the challenge.
“He simultaneously is arguing in defense of Initiative 976, which is a gross conflict of interest,” court documents say.
“That is enough to recall him,” says Bannister.
The decision to move forward with a recall vote will be in the hands of Judge Bowman, who will decide if that charges are “sufficient” enough to warrant a special statewide election. If he agrees, Bannister and Matthews and their supporters will need to collect 780,000 signatures to call for the election.
They will vote on language already written by Chief Justice Fairhurst. It will ask voters to decide if Bob Ferguson “committed acts of misfeasance and malfeasance and violated his oath of office” and should be recalled from office.
