Facebook, Google to pay Washington state $400,000 in fees from campaign finance cases
12/19/2018 12:23am

Washington Attorney General Bob Ferguson released a statement Tuesday afternoon announcing that tech-giants Facebook and Google are slated to pay Washington state over $400,000 in fines after the companies failed to keep track of who was paying for campaign advertisements on their platforms.The fines follow from lawsuits that Ferguson originally filed this summer. The charges to the companies stem from the 1972 Fair Campaign Practices Act, which states that all political advertisers are required to keep track of who is purchasing advertising and make sure that information is accessible to the public. Facebook and Google did not do either of those things, according to the lawsuits.Whether you are a small-town newspaper or a large corporation, Washingtons political advertising disclosure laws apply to everyone, Ferguson said in the statement.According to official documents, Washington state candidates and various political committees recorded that they paid $1.5 million and $5.1 million dollars to Google and Facebook for advertising, respectively. Ferguson says that the funds received from the cases will go to Washingtons Public Disclosure Transparency account, which is a part of the state treasury. Washington State Legislature outlines that the subsequent lawsuit funds must be used for implementation of chapter 304, which is dedicated to reporting campaign finance.

12/18/2018 9:01pm

A small gesture is making a big impact on a local family this holiday season. An elderly Spokane couple want to shine a light on firefighters who gave them a Christmas miracle theyll never forget.It was a McReynolds Family Christmas tradition, turned holiday nightmare.Randle McReynolds was putting up Christmas lights with his wife, Sara, when he unfortunately fell onto the concrete driveway.Randle left with emergency crews in an ambulance. What happened after he left, is what his family is calling, a selfless act from local firefighters.I was putting up Christmas lights on the eave behind me, Randle said.My job was to observe and say - good job, good job, Sara said.And Id got done halfway through to come down on that little step stool, Randle said.Hit the next step and lost his balance and pirouetted around, Sara said.It threw me off balance. And I ended up about eight feet out into the driveway face down, Randle said.I couldnt stop him, it was too fast, Sara said.Randle broke his shoulder and bruised his ribs.The Perry Street Fire Station showed up before the ambulance, and they made sure I was warm, Randle said.AMR took him to the hospital, while firefighters stayed with Sara.And Im thinking - what more could you do You got him stabilized, you got him on his way to the hospital, Sara said.Their offer was something she never expected.They said - can we finish putting your lights up for you. Thats when I almost lost it, Sara said.For the firefighters who helped put up the lights - they said its just part of their daily duty.The reason we came on to the fire department is to help people, and its just very satisfying to be able to do that everyday, said firefighter Jesse Ayotte, Spokane Fire Department.But for the McReynolds family, it was much more than that. In their eyes, its a Christmas miracle. That was way beyond the call of duty, Sara said.Randles shoulder and ribs are slowly healing. Doctors said, hell just have to put up with leaving his arm in a sling for a while, then he should be good as new. Get your weather forecast from people that actually live in your community.
