EMERGENCY! Amazon just dropped a $1 million bomb on the Seattle city elections, in a flagrant attempt to blow up Seattle’s democratic process and drive out Seattle’s socialist Councilmember Kshama Sawant. This brings their total spending to a RECORD-SMASHING, totally unprecedented $1.45 million!
This election is about who runs our cities: big business or working people. Amazon is seeking revenge for last year’s Tax Amazon struggle, when Councilmember Kshama Sawant led the charge to stand up to Bezos’ corporate bullying.
Already, we’re seeing huge numbers of paid canvassers hired by the corporate PACs all over the district spreading misinformation about the race. This latest corporate money bomb will also be used to flood our neighborhoods with dishonest attack mailers, and a blitz of television, print, and online ads. We need to fight back!
We’re doing an emergency donations drive to so that we can print a new round of literature and posters to reach every voter in our district with our grassroots message for rent control, taxing big business to fund affordable housing, and a Green New Deal. Unlike Kshama’s opponent, her campaign is not for sale to the highest bidder.
