Progressives win in Seattle City Council despite $1.5 Million spent by Amazon

Socialist Seattle City Councilwoman Kshama Sawant won re-election. Other progressive candidates appear to have won in close races. They had been opposed by a slate of candidates that Amazon and other businesses spent $1.5 million to support after the city council voted a $15 minimum wage and for a ’per employee’ tax on large businesses. The ’per employee’ tax was repealed before taking effect.
