Tad Doviak started this petition to Anthony Martinelli

Anthony Martinelli has been charged with six counts of domestic violence. One charge includes allegedly swinging a firearm at his partner. Two former partners have come forward alleging physical and mental abuse. The current and former mayors of Des Moines and the 33rd District Democrats have now called on him to resign. The Des Moines City Council has formally censured him and stripped him of his committee assignments. He is unable to represent the citizens of the city and should resign immediately. Signing this petition is a start. You can also email the Des Moines City Council at citycouncil@desmoineswa.gov. Further, you can contact everyone who endorsed him in the last election and ask them if they still endorse him.
