Mayor Derpkan was not amused. I, on the other hand, am very amused. Almost as amused as I am by my excessive use of the word "derp."
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. 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.
Correction: Seattle should not put HER family and HER children at risk. Nuts to anyone else if Mayor Derpkan thinks she can score a political point or two. This is why, while I'm generally opposed to protesters showing up at private residences, when it's the residence of an elected official who is okay with them showing up outside of your residence or your place of business, I feel the need to look the other way while it's happening. The same way Mayor Derpkan looked the other way while these same protesters took over a part of her city.
