A full YouTube of Seattle City Councilwoman Lorena González doing the dirty work (fellow) white males won't do and EJECT Alex Tsimerman from the Seattle City Council chambers.

I have placed this clip on YouTube to keep the pressure on other politicians to follow Seattle City Councilwoman Lorena González's courageous example. Cheers!
