King County Settles Public Records Case Over Elections for $225,000

The Seattle Times reports on Stefan Sharkansky's case against King County.  He asked for records relating to the fact that the County had more votes than voters in the 2004 election (the one in which King County kept finding more and more votes for Gov. Gregoire, who eventually won by 124 votes). 

The County will pay Sharkansky $225,000.
