People have been wondering when enough will be enough for Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan to do something about the area known as the CHOP, a six block area seized by radical leftists/anarchists.
She initially praised the protest, calling it a big “block party” even describing it as a possible “summer of love.” She even provided them barricades to help them block off their area and toilets.
It’s then been a month of total chaos with murders, shootings and all kinds of other crime.
After finally saying last week that the protesters should wind down their presence there because of the violence, the mayor still hasn’t effectively addressed the problem and people are still there, causing problems.
As we wrote on Monday, there was another shooting leaving a 16 year old teen dead and another boy, 14 years old, wounded.
As we reported earlier, a Fox News crew was also surrounded and harassed, after a Fox News reporter was assaulted.
But guess what has finally upset her? When hundreds of them finally showed up screaming at her house on Monday night.
Durkan was outraged that they dared come to her house. Too bad she wasn’t outraged when they came for the neighborhood of her constituents.
From The Blaze:
Durkan released a statement expressing her anger at the protest. She was especially upset that Seattle City Council member Kshama Sawant had joined the protesters at her home.
“Mayor Durkan and her family are in the state program to keep their address confidential because of the death threats mostly related to her work as Seattle’s U.S. Attorney under President Obama. Instead of working to make true change, Councilmember Sawant continues to choose political stunts,” read the statement from her office.
“Tonight she did so without regard for the safety of the Mayor and her family. The Mayor was not even home — she was working at City Hall. Seattle can and should peacefully demonstrate but should not put families and children at risk,” the statement concluded.
Sawant is a declared socialist and reports suggesting it was she who used her key to the City Hall to let protesters into the building and lobby for Durkan to resign. Knowing Durkan’s situation, she still apparently involved in tipping people to the mayor’s address thus effectively doxxing her for the world.
Durkan is now calling on the city council to investigate Sawant for this and a long list of other actions, including letting the protesters into city hall, involvement in the illegal occupation of the East Precinct and, interestingly, also accusing her of allowing the “National Executive committee and the Seattle executive committee of the Socialist Alternative Party” to make hiring decisions.

Interesting that Durkan is raising these other issues about Sawant now, since she obviously must have known about them before last night.
Sounds like Mayor Durkan has finally had enough of that “Summer of Love” as well as Sawant.
