Fake news on the Internet or social media is one thing, but tacked directly to your door? As the Vancouver Columbian reports, that’s exactly what happened recently in Vancouver, Washington, where some residents woke up to find a letter tacked to their front door from Gov. Jay Inslee. Said note warned them of an impending property tax hike over the shutdown of an oil terminal…blah, blah, blah. Needless to say, the letter didn’t come from Inslee’s office. Who did place those letters is more of a mystery, though apparently there has been a similar series of letters being aimed at supporters of U.S. Sen. Patty Murray, a Washington Democrat. Although the missive was full of a variety of incorrect information, Clark County Assessor Peter Van Nortwick notes the writer did get one thing correct. “It’s very rare that someone gets my name spelled right,” he said.
