Recall Senators Maria Cantwell and Patty Murray for Oath of Office Violations
Petition to Recall U.S. Senator Patty Murray, (D) and U.S Senator Maria Cantwell (D) Washington: This petition is to the population of registered Washington State voters who disapprove of the actions of Senators Patty Murray, and Maria Cantwell and wish to officially recall Senators Murray and Cantwell from their elected positions as Senators from the State of Washington. The recall of elected officials is allowed under Washington law, pursuant to Washington Constitution Article I § 33, on the grounds of physical or mental lack of fitness, incompetence, violation of oath of office, official misconduct, or conviction of certain felony offenses. It is felt that Senators Murray and Cantwell have shown incompetence in their duties by failing to adequately represent the majority of Washingtonians. It is also felt that Senators Murray and Cantwell have violated their oaths of office by failing to support and defend the Constitution of the United States. They have by their actions violated the rights of the State of Washington and its citizens as guaranteed by the Tenth Amendment of the United States Constitution. "The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people." Senators Murray and Cantwell’s actions and voting record show that they have gone beyond the powers granted elected officials under Article I section 8 of the United States Constitution, and that they no longer represent the common citizen of the State of Washington, but instead is swayed by special interest groups and party politics that are so prevalent in Washington DC. Furthermore Senators Murray and Cantwell are causing grave damage to the security and stability of the nation by crippling the people of the United States with indefensible and unmanageable debt through their actions. The people of Washington deserve to be adequately represented at all levels of government by elected individuals who fully realize that they work for “We the People”, and that they must listen to their constituents and vote according to the will of the people and not their own whims or personal agendas. If there is sufficient interest in this recall of Senators Murray and Cantwell, which will be evidenced by the number of registered Washington voters who sign this petition, then a formal recall of Senators Murray and Cantwell will be initiated following the protocol set forth in the Washington Code for such recalls. Please note that persons signing this petition must be registered Washington voters for their signature(s) to be considered, and that no person can sign the petition more than once. Please forward this petition and its associated web site to any and all of your fellow Washington citizens who are interested in enacting future and immediate change in our Senate representation and regain control of our government.
