Washington State Fair confirms man charged with indecent exposure was kids ride operator

The Washington State Fair confirmed in a statement Saturday that a man accused of exposing himself outside a Tacoma residence had worked in the children’s ride area of the fair, called SillyVille. The man, employed by the fair’s carnival operator, was fired. SillyVille workers are supposed to undergo background checks. It’s not clear why the check didn’t reveal the man’s previous misdemeanors for similar sexual behavior.
