State Patrol to probe I-1163 signature fraud

Backers of an initiative to improve home care and worker training say they have discovered fraud in petitions turned over to a California-based subcontractor that was paid to gather signatures for Initiative 1163.

Secretary of State Sam Reed’s office put out a statement this morning confirming that the case has been given to the Washington State Patrol for investigation. The numbers of faulty signatures could be in the hundreds.
