UPDATE: A Call to Action for Washington State Voters!
From the Food Nation Radio News Desk
In our interview and comments below you will hear new information about concerns connected with the State of Washington vote on Initiative 522. We are in hopes the Attorney General of the State of Washington will be monitoring this vote closely.
For months, we’ve followed the I-522 ballot initiative in Washington State that would require the labeling of genetically modified foods. Efforts in other states around the country (including Florida) are watching I-522 election results and making plans and developing strategy based upon the final results of this election. Ballots are being counted, slowly, and the election is very, very close.
In a special segment exclusively for NewsTalkFlorida.com, The Food Nation Radio Network with Elizabeth Dougherty spoke with a resident of Snohomish County in the northern suburbs of Seattle about what it took to confirm that her YES vote on the I-522 initiative was received, verified and counted.
As you will hear in our comments after the interview, it is clear even after the election is certified on November 26th, the Attorney General of Washington may take further action based upon the fact that unlawful contributions with unclean hands were used to fund a negative campaign to sway public opinion and change the outcome of this election.
