Hey, politicians in Washington State! Wanna make up something crazy and totally untrue about your opponent? Go ahead!
Not that they need encouragement, but politicians were given the green light to lie about their opponents by the Washington Supreme Court the other day.
More than a dozen states have laws that make it unlawful to say false things about political candidates. The laws are, in practice, mainly aspirational. By a 5-to-4 vote on Thursday, the Washington Supreme Court added that the law in that state was also unconstitutional.
