Yelm and Roy residents filed paperwork to recall AG Ferguson

“Hearing to mull recall vote for state AG Ferguson gets green light from Chief Justice”

“Scott Bannister of Yelm and Matthew Marshall of Roy filed the necessary paperwork for the recall with the Secretary of State on Dec. 16.”

“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.”

“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.”

“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,” by Matt Markovich, KOMO-4 TV News, Seattle. Read more
