Petition to Remove Whittier Councilwoman Jessica Martinez Gaining Steam

Petition to Remove Whittier Councilwoman Jessica Martinez Gaining Steam

Jessica Martinez Martinez’ former actions do not square with her denial that she was at the rally.

 

BY BRIAN HEWS • January 12, 2021

A resident in the Whittier area has started an online petition to remove Councilwoman Jessica Martinez from the Whittier City Council for her participation in the Trump rally in D.C.

Zenaida Huerta has started a petition online at the actionnetwork.org sponsored by Democrats for Justice.

The petition states, “On December 29th, Whittier Councilmember Jessica Martinez (District 1) tweeted that she was willing to “give up [her] life” to “take back” her country. Just seven days later, she was part of the violent, armed coup attempt on Capitol Hill. This was an act of domestic terrorism.”

Martinez announced her intent to participate in the rally on Twitter alongside multiple tweets questioning the legitimacy of the presidential election and branding Republicans who accepted the result as “traitors.” On Wednesday morning, she also uploaded a clip of video footage from the rally.

There is calls to censure Martinez, County Supervisor Janice Hahn also added her voice to those calling for Martinez’s censure.

“Any attempt to delay or prevent the peaceful transfer of power is a threat to our democracy and there must be consequences,” Hahn said Friday in a statement.

Congresswoman Linda Sanchez (D-Norwalk) slammed Martinez in a tweet.

 

Martinez has responded to racist tweets with equally racist tweets. AFter on tweet about Somalia-born Rep, Ilhan Omar, D-Minneapolis, Martinez tweeted “she can go back wherever she came from and REALLY be a victim” or saying about U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Massachusetts, “President Pocahontas? She needs a Wigwam not the white house.”

The petition finishes, “If you believe that domestic terrorists have no place in our city council, sign this petition to urge Mayor Joe Vinatieri to censure Councilmember Jessica Martinez from the January 12th city council meeting. Make sure you also email [email protected] before January 12th with public comment demanding Martinez be prevented or “censured” from participating on the city council.”

As of 9 am this morning the petition had 6,190 signatures.

    it seems that free speech is hated in america. to say what happened in DC was an armed insurrection is ridiculous. Many of the protesters live streamed the event, and i watched the protesters leave the capital building without an argument and at the request of police. whatever the media, big tech, and the Chinese agents who have taken control of our government say, had those protesters so desired, they could have taken control of the capital building and captured both houses of congress by force. Pelosi’s main complaint is not that an insurrection occurred, it is how easily she could have been captured by a mob with that intent. How about reassuring me about the integrity of our elections by allowing me to examine the election data that is supposed to be preserved for 22 months after an election is over? a little transparency goes a long way when you want to know the truth. The fact that the legally protected election data apparently cannot be reviewed by anyone who believes that fraud occurred is ridiculous. How many voting districts counted more votes than registered voters in this election. Record breaking voter turnout for Trump necessitated record injections of fraudulent ballots. The cheated in 2016, and Hillary knew she won before the polls closed. Biden made sure that a repeat did not occur, and he boasted about the most inclusive and widespread voter fraud scam this country has ever seen. In America, it is only cheating when you get caught. now You cannot win an election without cheating, because your opponent will cheat and win. You won’t be able to successfully challenge the outcome of elections, because the evidence you need to prove it has been preserved for 22 months after an election and then destroyed. You need a court order to get access to the evidence, and the court prevents anyone from examining the evidence once it has been ‘secured’. All of the affidavits from witnesses doesn’t replace the hard evidence they have ‘secured’ from our elections. The affidavits warrant access to the hard evidence. All of the cases that have been thrown out for various excuses were not granted access to the real evidence that proves beyond a doubt that our elections are a hoax and our democracy is a facade. Whoever is controlling our politicians has an agenda, and they are pursuing it vigorously. We know they want to destroy our economy, because they tried to with the home loan mortgage scandal. Career politicians on both sides of the aisle are complicit, and the differences between republicans and democrats are for a show. They have to keep up appearances, so Republicans mostly support Trump. The swift passage of unread legislation by the Congress was supported by enough members of both parties to override a veto. now how come congress passed spending bills that they haven’t read. This budget should have been passed before the fiscal year started on October 1, but Pelosi didn’t bother to submit any such bills until almost three months into the fiscal year.

    President elect Biden is talking about all the legislation his administration is prepared to introduce. i think that Biden did not know what his job was as vice president, or he would have oversaw the senate as the president instead of jet setting around the world and negotiating with foreign powers as though he were another secretary of state. Now he is stepping into the office of the president with a legislative agenda that should not exist. Congress is the legislature, and the president is not allowed to introduce spending bills or pass legislation. He can review the bills that congress passes, and write down all of his concerns for congress to address as he sends it back to congress for them to address his concerns. If Congress doesn’t want to address those concerns, they can pass the legislation with a supermajority in both houses. There is no place in this process for the president to introduce spending bills of his own. The Senate cannot even do that. Those bills originate in the house. The only thing good to come of the 2020 elections is the revelation of the hoax that we call american democracy. get ready for joe to establish totalitarian control in his efforts to establish a socialist republic for the american people. we are not the first country this has happened to. Over a hundred nations were swallowed up in the soviet union before it fell.

    Council Martinez’s behavior past and present is a disgrace to our great city. Her judgment is without reason or to say the least rational. Her behavior impacts our city economically in that her decision making skills are terrible. How can we trust her to vote on contracts that are in the best interest of our community. Mr. Mayor your decision to sanction her may have an impact on your professional stature with yourself and your firm. Mr. Mayor please set aside your police party for as we all know you and other council members are elected on a non partisan ballot. We encourage you to use your authority to hold Martinez accountable.

    As a representative of this city, she should be more considerate and mindful of her actions and not incite ignorance and bigotry.

  • Maria Orellana says:

    I am a resident/busienss owner of Whittier and I want to support that movement to remove Jessica Martinez from the city counsil.

  • This woman needs to go, she participated in the
    most egregious violent attack on our Capitol
    and is part of the problem not the solution,
    Trump enablers will be exponentially vilified
    in the coming weeks, months and years, so
    please lets remove her ASAP!! Thank you!
