According to reporting by The Seattle Times, Richmond Beach resident Andy Finseth has been identified as the person who sent threatening emails to Seattle City councilmember Kshama Sawant.

Finseth, a Seattle firefighter, used another firefighter's email. He also sent in a request for transfer under that firefighter's name.

He has been charged with second-degree identity theft and two counts of cyberstalking and is on paid administrative leave during an internal investigation and resolution of the legal charges.

Finseth was Seattle Firefighter of the Year in 2018.

Just like many politicians on the left forcing and oppressing people choices to as way of life they do not want for themselves. Kshama Sawant does not have the interests of all people in mind, but a narrow selfish vision of self interests that she imposes on whomever she can.

Wow... Firefighter of the Year? Now he is being a bully and a ID thief?

Who chooses the winners? Finseth is a white male - I'll bet they had better applicants who were 'less pale and less male'.

so sad that this guy was awarded the prize while apparently not a "winner" personally
