Seattle Councilmember Sawant violated city law with Tax Amazon efforts, ethics commission says – KIRO Seattle

“Our movement is picking up steam!” Sawant wrote. “On January 13, we held a powerful launch rally of our Tax Amazon 2020 campaign, with 500 people rocking Washington Hall to Tax Amazon and big business to build social housing. Now join my council office and a coalition of progressive labor and renters’ rights organizations – alongside hundreds of working people in Seattle – at the first of our grassroots democratic Tax Amazon conferences. Let’s come together as a movement to discuss different proposals for an Amazon Tax, including how much it should raise annually, what it should fund and what tax mechanism we should use, as well as to organize the grassroots strategy needed to win.”
