Recall Jane Hague push to save the KC Dems skin?

Last summer the King County fell down the stairs when they failed to file an opponent to incredibly weak KC councilmember Jane Hague.

Hague of the DUI charge.

Here's my question, if Hague is found guilty of driving drunk later this month, wouldn't it be smart for the KC Dems to try to remove her from office?

Recall in the state of Washington is allowed even for simply breaking the law, as it is assumed Hague did when she was sloshed while driving on June 2 on Hwy 520.

From the MRSC:
has been found guilty of two or more of the acts specified in the State Constitution as grounds for recall.[ii] The terms are defined as follows:
  • "Misfeasance" or malfeasance" in office means any wrongful conduct that affects, interrupts, or interferes with the performance of official duty;
    • Additionally, "misfeasance" in office means the performance of a duty in an improper manner; and
    • Additionally, "malfeasance" in office means the commission or an unlawful act
  • "Violation of the oath of office" means the willful neglect or failure by an elective public officer to perform faithfully a duty imposed by law.
One could assume they could come up easily with one ground of recall (driving drunk), I guess its only a matter of finding another one.
