Bill that would make it a crime for some to lie about election results dies in WA Senate

Gov. Jay Inslee’s novel and controversial proposal to tamp down on election lies by candidates and elected officials will not move forward this year. Senate Bill 5843 would create a gross misdemeanor penalty for elected officials or candidates who “knowingly, recklessly or maliciously” lie about results of an election if those falsehoods led to violence. Joseph O’Sullivan, The Seattle Times.
