Seems somewhat strange. How hard could it have been to have weird ass playing cards printed up?

And what, exactly, will this end up costing the Washington taxpayer? More than the $25,000 that was taken? Oh yes, it's an election year. Silly me. I thought this was about the consumers getting fleeced.

The suit is brought by the office of the Attorney General, who is appointed by Gov. Jay Inslee, who isn't up for re-election until 2016. Also, as a resident of WA, I can assure you no one gives a fuck about crowdfunding fraud and it's not really a hot button issue that's going to sway voters 2 years from now.

Whatever the motivation here, just ignoring this kind of activity because it's not profitable to go after it is a pretty fucking stupid position to hold.

I'm a WA state taxpayer, and the portion of my taxes that goes to the Attorney General's office is supposed to be used for stuff like this, so more power to them.

If you lived in Washington, you would know there is no state income tax. So I guess you mean your federal tax money?

We have a sales tax, and all the other myriad taxes states levy upon their residents. I doubt my federal income tax goes to the WA state AG. You should see the taxes we have on booze now after we opened up liquor sales to non-state-run stores.

But what is the point you're trying to make? That the AG's office runs on cupcakes and happy thoughts and the citizens of WA don't pay them?
