"Ruse" lures inspector

 
This bug appeared in a news report published by Seattle PI on Jan 29, 2012. View the original news report.
Bug Type:  Fabrication

This story was determined to be false and defamatory -- there was no ruse. Mr. Paysse made it up. It was removed from the WNT online edition (this is all you see now)

I am the person who supposedly foisted the "ruse" -- I am a whistleblower in a state investigation of WAIF. I intend to sue if the story is not withdrawn from other media outlets. I am a seasoned journalist.

I have not contacted the Seattle PI because it's impossible to know how. Go the homepage and try to find a link for an ombudsman -- good luck with that.

Hi, Barbara -- thanks for filing this error report. I did find a complete contact list for the PI here. We'll let them know about this bug. (The PI version of the story seems to be the most significant one of the URLs you've posted, so that's the one we'll focus on.)
