Banned the box
Spokane City Council voted 5-2 to "ban the box" within the city, meaning even private employers will face fines for asking about an applicant's criminal history before an interview starting in 2019. Advocates at the council meeting last night said the move will lift a significant barrier for felons hoping to find jobs. (Spokesman-Review)

Real news
In a desperate effort to discredit the Washington Post, a conservative organization called Project Veritas had a woman approach the Post and say that she was impregnated as a teen by Roy Moore, the Republican U.S. Senate candidate in Alabama accused of child molestation. But the Post, after making attempts to verify her story, found out it was fake and confronted her. (Washington Post)

Covering all bases
The iconic U.S. Pavilion in Riverfront Park will remain uncovered, aside from some covering underneath, the Spokane Park Board decided. (KREM)

Making it easier for the rich
Republicans are pushing their tax bill through Congress, and as they hit roadblocks, they're increasingly adding more tax breaks for the wealthy to the bill. (New York Times)

Trump's bad joke
