A left-wing Seattle council member’s claims that the fatal weekend shooting in the so-called CHOP zone may have been the work of right-wing agitators were checked by both Mayor Jenny Durkan and protest organizers.
Seattle City Council member Kshama Sawant speculated Saturday in a statement, without citing evidence, that the killing of a 19-year-old man was a possible “right-wing attack.”
But she wasn’t done yet. She went on to tweet more idiocy …
She added: “Seattle’s establishment Mayor Jenny Durkan and Police Chief Carmen Best also share responsibility for having portrayed our protest movement as violent.”
However, a spokesperson for Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan released a statement saying it is too early to speculate on what led to the shooting or who committed it, KOMO News reported.
