It overstated the contributions received by the Yes on 522 campaign and the share of donations received from Washington state. The Yes campaign has amassed $3.5 (not 3.9) million, with 79 (not 71) percent of the funds coming from out of state. The nonprofit MapLight, based in Berkeley, Calif., informed us on Aug. 21 that it had double-counted some contributions, which led to the errors.</em></p> Tue, 20 Aug 2013 00:51:18 +0000 John Ryan 18852 at http://kuow.org GMO Labeling Backers Outspend Foes In Washington Ask King County Executive Dow Constantine http://kuow.org/post/ask-king-county-executive-dow-constantine-5 <p><span style="line-height: 1.5;">King County Executive </span><a href="http://King County Executive Dow Constantine is back from a trip to New York to pitch the return of the pro basketball to Seattle.
