Well, You Don’t See This Every Day: A Mayor’s Wife Carpooling In A Paddywagon With SEIU Protesters…

Somehow, the mayor of Seattle’s wife, Peggy Lynch, decided to trade in her ball gowns for a pair of handcuffs.


More than 30 women, including Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn’s wife, were arrested Thursday during a protest at the Washington state Republican headquarters in Bellevue.

The women were among a group of about 150 rallying in support of immigration reform.

The rally began at Downtown Park in Bellevue. Protesters then marched to the GOP headquarters, where a smaller group of about 40 entered the building and refused to leave.

Among those arrested inside the building were Peggy Lynch, wife of outgoing Seattle Mayor McGinn; the executive directors of 21 Progress, Casa Latina and the NW Network; the political director of SEIU Healthcare 1199 Northwest, and the presidents of the Washington Education Association and AFT Washington.

…These are the people who call Tea Party activists extreme?
