I'm still expecting Kshama to cheer Bellomio's initiative in Occupying the Seattle City Council.
So, you are cheering the fact that two years from now all the council members will be able to take the same claim that they've been working as a part of this committee to raise the minimum wage ?
And this is an improvement from the previous situation where only 4 council members could claim such ? Or do you think that more committee members = more decisive action ?

CHS is also deleting almost every comment critical of these business owners and has no repudiation of these claims. Several commenters jumped in to call out some of the BS claims made, and even list the real estate these people own based on public records searches, but got deleted immediately. Slog, please post about this, as CHS appears to have gone right of the Seattle Times.
The owner of Red Light who said that quote owns a $728,000 house in Greenwood. The owners of Julia's own a $1,357,000 house. Dave Meinert, who predictably jumped in the comments defending capitalism and how much he's close to the brink, owns two houses in King County - including this mansion in Burien.
Shocking that you own a $650K house as well. What a surprise. Rich white guys unite.
