Wite-Out

(redirected from Witeout)
A trade mark for correction fluid which has become a generic term for any opaque, white—or, less commonly, other type page colours—fluid, applied to typed pages to cover typed errors. Correction fluids have contained volatile chlorinated hydrocarbon solvents, at first toluene, which was banned as it is carcinogenic, then trichloroethane, which was banned because it depletes the ozone layer, then tricholoethylene and bromopropane. These organic solvents have psychoactive effects when deliberately inhaled—‘huffed’ or ‘sniffed’

The Kings stood accused of 10 violations of the campaign finance act, including "failing to report an in-kind contribution," "maintaining a petty cash fund greater than $500" and, more seriously, "making $20,000 in non-campaign-related expenditures" and "falsification of contribution documentation." CFB auditors found that 58 of the contribution documents that Kings submitted had been "altered with WiteOut" and that six people named on those cards claim "they didn't contribute or didn't contribute the amount stated."
