Well, Whaddya Know!

Kshama Sawant is a very bright person, she has a Ph.D. in economics and teaches that subject at the college level. What is most remarkable about this young woman is that she is a Socialist and is currently leading in the election returns for her race for City Council in Seattle.

Apparently, Seattle has never elected a Socialist and Ms Sawant will be the first. She ran advocating an increase in the minimum wage to $ 15 an hour, supporting rent control, and proposing a tax on millionaires.

As of the latest count, Kshama Sawant has a 41 vote lead against her opponent but the ballots are still being counted.
