The Washington Secretary of State's office said Tuesday it had checked another 5,815 signatures for Referendum 71, rejecting 14.4 percent. R-71 seeks to overturn Washington's new domestic partnership law for same-sex couples. "The error rate was the highest of any seen during the first three days of scrutiny," said Dave Ammons, secretary of state spokesman. [Link]
