RCW 42.17A.335, RCW 42.1&A.320, RCW 42.17A.442, RCW 42.17A.205 Assessment of Facts

As of Wednesday, October 24, 2018, the Public Disclosure Commission (PDC) had received 31 complaints that were filed against four political committees recently registered with the PDC: (1) A Brighter Thurston County PAC; (2) Conscience of the Progressives PAC; (3) Real Progressives in Thurston County PAC; and (4) Send a Message PAC.  Some of the complaints contained allegations against the Campaign Manager for the committees Glen Morgan and/or Treasurer Orin Wells in their individual capacities.

 

The complaints alleged that the four political committees listed above, and/or Messrs. Morgan and/or Wells individually, produced and distributed independent expenditure (IE) political advertising in the form of direct mail pieces that violated: (1) RCW 42.17A.205 by failing to timely disclose the committee officers and other required information on the Committee Registration (C-1pc report); (2) RCW 42.17A.320 by failing to include the party preference for a candidate featured in the IE political advertisements; (3) RCW 42.17A.335 by sponsoring IE political advertising that contained either false statements of material facts, or false endorsements about a candidate, made with malice; and (4) RCW 42.17A.442 for making unauthorized contributions to another committee without first receiving contributions of ten dollars or more each from at least ten persons registered to vote in Washington State.     

 

The IE advertisements sent the message that the sponsoring political committees requested recipients to write-in the names of four individuals that included Teresa Purcell, Joe Pakootas, Nathan Schlicher, and EJ Zita in the 2018 elections, even though those individuals are not declared candidates seeking public office in 2018. 

 

Complaints filed against Real Progressives in Thurston County PAC and A Brighter Thurston County PAC

 

  • The complaints against Real Progressives in Thurston County PAC and A Brighter Thurston County PAC alleged violations of RCW 42.17A by sponsoring an IE advertisement in opposition to Tye Menser, a 2018 candidate for Thurston County Commissioner.  The mailer mentioned Fuse Washington (Fuse), the state's largest progressive organization (whose goals according to its website include assisting progressive candidates in getting elected to office and to “give ordinary people a strong voice in politics”) and a Fuse publication entitled Fuse WA Progressive Voters Guide. The mailer requested that voter’s write-in EJ Zita as the real Progressive candidate for County Commissioner in 2018, despite the fact Ms. Zita is not a declared candidate for public office or registered with the PDC in 2018 and is not conducting a write-in campaign.  FUSE endorsed Tye Menser for Thurston County Commissioner in 2018, and in 2017 Fuse endorsed Ms. Zita for her campaign for Port of Olympia Commissioner.   A quote on the mailer from the Fuse Progressive Voters Guide about Ms. Zita was from the 2017 election, although the mailer does not so indicate.

The complaint alleged a violation of RCW 42.17A.555 by using public facilities to support her campaign by having a photograph taken in front of a fire station that included several fire fighters and using that photograph in political advertising.

PDC staff reviewed the allegations listed in the complaint, PDC laws, rules and, PDC Interpretation No. 04-02 Guidelines for Local Public Agencies in Election Campaigns, and the responses from Ms. Vargas, Shelby Kremenich, Campaign Manager, Friends of Pinky Vargas, and Colin Lowin, PAC Chair, International Association of Firefighters, Local 106 Bellingham/Whatcom Co.

The complaint alleged that the Committee may have violated RCW 42.17A.235 and .240 by failing to timely file complete and accurate Monetary Contribution reports (C-3 reports) and Summary Full Campaign Contributions and Expenditure reports (C-4 reports) disclosing: (1) the receipt of a $900 contribution from the 44th Legislative District Democrats; (2) a $3,000 expenditure for a monetary contribution made to Jared Mead; and (3) the reporting of the Blue Wave Gala event held on September 29, 2018.

PDC staff reviewed the allegations listed in the complaint you filed, the statutes, rules and reporting requirements, the C-3 and C-4 reports filed by the Committee, and the response to the complaint provided by Richard Moralez, former Committee treasurer and Eric Halvorson, current Committee treasurer.   

Based on these findings, and the extenuating circumstances of the death of the Committee treasurer, staff has determined that in this instance, the failure to timely file C-3 and C-4 reports disclosing contributions and expenditures does not amount to a material violation warranting further investigation.

Pursuant to WAC to WAC 390-37-060(1), the Snohomish County Democratic Central Committee will receive a formal written warning concerning the failure to comply with the reporting requirements and to timely and accurately file C-3 and C-4 reports disclosing contributions and expenditures activities in accordance with RCW 42.17A.235 and .240.

PDC staff has the expectation the Snohomish County Democratic Central Committee will timely file complete and accurate reports in future years in accordance with PDC laws and rules, including the timely depositing of contributions within five business days of receipt.

The Commission will consider the formal written warning in deciding on further Commission action if there are future violations of PDC laws or rules.

Based on this information, the PDC has dismissed this matter in accordance with RCW 42.17A.755(1).

The complaint alleged Secure School Choice for Washington violated (1) RCW 42.17A.205 by failing to timely file a Committee Registration (C-1pc report) registering with the PDC as a political committee within two weeks of making an expenditure in any election campaign; (2) RCW 42.17A.240(2) for failing to properly disclose contributions received from contributors on Monetary Contribution reports (C-3 reports); and (3) RCW 42.17A.320 for failing to identify the complete sponsor identification on political advertisements sponsored by the Committee.

The Committee was merely posting information on its Facebook page, or merely reposting posts from other sites on its Facebook page. The contents posted on the Committee’s Facebook page did not require an expenditure of funds to distribute the information and did not meet the definition of a contribution in accordance with RCW 42.17A.005.  Therefore, the Committee did not have a reporting obligation.

Mr. Miller acknowledged that the Committee filed several C-3 reports that failed to include the complete address information as required for contributors. On Nov. 9, 2018, the Committee filed four amended C-3 reports for deposits made April 10, April 30 and May 14, 2018, to include the complete address for several contributors. Mr. Miller indicated he continues to try and reach donors to gather employer information.

Based on this information, the PDC has dismissed this matter in accordance with RCW 42.17A.755(1) and will not be conducting a more formal investigation into the complaint or pursuing further enforcement action in this case.

PDC staff is reminding Secure School Choice for Washington and Tyler Miller about the importance of filing timely and accurately C-3 reports and C-4 reports in accordance with PDC laws, including complete contributor information, and the political advertising requirements, including the importance of clearly identifying sponsorship information on all forms of advertising, including social media advertising.

The complaint alleged that the North Kitsap Fire and Rescue (the District), a public agency, may have violated RCW 42.17A.555 by using fire district facilities to produce and distribute a newsletter that provided citizens with information in support of Proposition 1, a four-year maintenance and operations levy for North Kitsap Fire and Rescue.
Pursuant to WAC to WAC 390-37-060(1) the District will receive a formal written warning concerning the need for election related information distributed by a public agency using public funds, needs to be an objective and factual presentation of the facts, and to not include language or photographs to provoke an emotional reaction to support a ballot proposition.

The PDC has dismissed this matter in accordance with RCW 42.17A.755(1).

39601 08/20/2018 PDC Staff Nolan Wentz Wentz, Nolan: Alleged violation of WAC 390-16-125 for exceeding the $5,000 contribution and expenditure limitations of the Mini Reporting option without receiving PDC approval (EY 18; Aug 18) RCW 42.17A.235, WAC 390-16-125 Resolved through Statement of Understanding
This is a PDC staff generated complaint alleging that Nolan Wentz, a first-time candidate for Yakima County Sheriff in 2018, violated WAC 390-16-125 by exceeding the $5,000 contribution and expenditure limitations of the Mini Reporting option. 

Candidates under the Mini Reporting Option are prohibited from accepting contributions (monetary and in-kind) and making expenditures in excess of the $5,000 limit, without properly changing reporting options and filing the required reports in accordance with RCW 42.17A.205, .235, and .240 and PDC rules.  Mr. Wentz exceeded the limitations of the Mini Reporting option prior to properly changing to the Full Reporting option, and his request to change options was denied.  The attached letter to Mr. Wentz denying his request to change options, served as the basis for the staff generated complaint.

Mr. Wentz completed a Statement of Understanding (SOU) acknowledging violations of RCW 42.17A , and paid a $600 civil penalty in accordance with WAC 390-37-143, based on the mitigating facts that Mr. Wentz was: (1) a first-time candidate for public office; (2) used personal funds to contribute $6,000 (+) of the $9,779 in total contributions his Campaign received; and (3) the other candidates running for Yakima County Sheriff were under the Full Reporting option.  

By completing these steps, Mr. Wentz has satisfied the requirements set forth in WAC 390-16-125 and PDC staff has approved his request to change to the Full Reporting Option, with the understanding that his Campaign is expected to timely file accurate C-3 and C-4 reports for the remainder of the 2018 election cycle.

Haihua (Eric) Yun stated he had spent less than $50, and that he added his name and address to the homepage of the website once he had spent more than $50.


Based on these findings, PDC staff has determined that in this instance, no evidence supports a finding of a material violation warranting further investigation. PDC staff is reminding Haihua (Eric) Yun about the importance of including the sponsor identification on all future political advertisements sponsored by him, including websites and blog sites. PDC staff is reminding Mr. Yun about the filing requirements as a political committee if he receives contributions or make expenditures in support of, or opposition to, any candidate or any ballot proposition, or to file an Independent Expenditure report (C-6 report) should he spend more than $100 of his personal funds to support or oppose any candidate or ballot proposition in 2018. The PDC has closed the matter, and will not be conducting a more formal investigation into your complaint or pursuing further enforcement action in this case.

The complaint alleged violations of RCW 42.17A.235 and .240 by failing to timely file complete and accurate Monetary Contribution reports (C-3 reports) and Summary Full Campaign Contributions and Expenditure reports (C-4 reports).

Staff’s review determined the Committee failed to timely file a small number of initial C-3 and C-4 reports and amended C-3 and C-4 reports disclosing minor contribution and expenditure activities.  

WSSR–PAC stated that the Committee did not make contributions to candidates prior to the primary election being held or otherwise participate in the primary elections until 2018.

Based on these findings, and the facts that WRRC-PAC timely filed its C-3 reports in 2018, and its 21-Day and 7-Day Pre-General Election C-4 reports, the failure to timely file a small number of contribution and expenditure reports does not amount to a material violation warranting further investigation.

The complaint alleged violations of RCW 42.17A.235 and .240 by failing to timely file complete and accurate Monetary Contribution reports (C-3 reports) and Summary Full Campaign Contributions and Expenditure reports (C-4 reports).

Ms. Woock indicated she experienced technical issues using the Online Reporting of Campaign Activities (ORCA), the electronic filing software provided by the PDC, and that her treasurer had problems with ORCA.

Based on these findings, and the facts that the Jeni Woock Campaign timely filed the 21-Day and 7-day Pre-General election C-4 reports, staff has determined that in this instance, failure to timely file reports of contributions and expenditures does not amount to a material violation warranting further investigation.

29101 12/21/2017 Glen Morgan Patty Rose Pierce County Committee on Political Education: Alleged Violation of RCW 42.17A.235, 240 for failure to accurately and timely report contributions, expenditures, and debt. (DEC 2017) 235, RCW 42.17A.240 Case Closed with Reminder
The complaint alleged the Committee violated RCW 42.17A.235 and .240 by: (1) failing to timely file Campaign Summary Receipts and Expenditure reports (C-4), and several Monetary Contribution reports (C-3); (2) failing to provide the proper reporting breakdown for a number of expenditures made by the campaign; and (3) failing to report debts and obligations.

We found the 28 C-3 and C-4 reports listed in the complaint as filed late, 13 were amended reports and the two items alleged as debt were properly reported expenditures, not debt.  

Based on these findings, staff has determined that in this instance, failure to timely file reports of contributions and expenditures does not amount to a material violation warranting further investigation.  The PDC is reminding Pierce County Committee on Political Education about the importance of timely filing C-3 and C-4 in accordance with PDC laws, rules and reporting requirements. The PDC has dismissed this matter in accordance with RCW 42.17A.755(1) and will not be conducting a more formal investigation into your complaint or pursuing further enforcement action in this case.

The complaint alleged that the Spokane Home Builders Association (Association) violated RCW 42.17A by failing to disclose making in-kind contributions for political advertisements that appeared on the Association’s “jumbotron-style” electronic reader board near Interstate 90 in October 2017, in support of four 2017 city council candidates. 

On May 8, 2018, the Association filed C-6 reports 196 days after the advertisements were presented to the public and 182 days after the November 7, 2017 general election, disclosing that the Association made $1,555 in total independent expenditures undertaken for the billboard advertisements.   The C-6 reports disclosed the Association’s opposition to Proposition No. 2, and its support of the following candidates: (1) 2017 Spokane Valley City Council candidates Caleb Collier, Rod Higgins, Pam Haley, & Mike Munch; (2) 2017 Spokane City Council candidates Tim Benn & Andy Dunau; and (3) 2017 Legislative candidates Senator Shelly Short, and State Representative Jaquelin Maycumber.


The Association completed a Statement of Understanding (SOU) and paid a $150 civil penalty in accordance with WAC 390-37-143, (Brief Enforcement Penalty Schedule), in lieu of having a Brief Enforcement Hearing scheduled.  The SOU and penalty payment resolved the allegations listed in the complaint for the late filed C-6 reports.

The complaint alleged violations of RCW 42.17A.235 and .240 by failing to: (1) timely file the Summary Full Campaign Contribution and Expenditure reports (C-4 reports), including the 7-Day Pre-Primary Election C-4 report; (2) disclose outstanding debts and obligations on the C-4 reports filed by the Campaign; and (3) provide the proper reporting breakdown for a number of expenditures made by the campaign. 


The Campaign made minor or ministerial errors on several of the C-4 reports filed for the 2016 election, including the disclosure of orders placed, and the sub-vendor breakdown and details of certain expenditures. In addition, the Campaign filed one C-4 report two days late. Upon notification of these errors, the Hansen Campaign timely amended 10 C-4 reports making the necessary technical corrections to the C-4 reports covering the period from December 2015 through June 2016, disclosing orders placed for one expenditure, and providing additional expenditure information.


PDC staff found no evidence of an actual material violation that would require conducting a more formal investigation or pursuing enforcement action in this instance. However, PDC staff is reminding the Drew Hansen Campaign of the importance of timely and accurate disclosure of campaign contribution and expenditure information, including the timely filing of C-4 reports, disclosure of orders placed, and the proper breakdown of expenditures.

A total of ten complaints were filed against Manka Dhingra, a candidate for State Senator in the 45th Legislative District in 2017, with the first two complaints having already been resolved.  The remaining eight complaints contained numerous allegations of violations of RCW 42.17A. for hundreds of campaign contribution and expenditure activities as disclosed on Candidate Registrations (C-1 reports), Monetary Contributions reports (C-3 reports), and Summary Full Campaign Contribution and Expenditure reports (C-4 reports), filed by the Friends of Manka Dhingra Campaign (Campaign).  

 

The eight complaints were combined into one letter for the following cases: (1) Complaint #3 (PDC Case 15366); (2) Complaint #4 (PDC Case 18600); (3) Complaint #5 (PDC Case 21175); (4) Complaint #6 (PDC Case 21336); (5) Complaint #7 (PDC Case 23120); (6) Complaint #8 (PDC Case 24233); (7) Complaint #9 (PDC Case 25507); and (8) Complaint #10 (PDC Case 27088).  

 

PDC staff found no evidence of a material violation that would require conducting a more formal investigation into the eight complaints filed against Senator Dhingra or pursuing enforcement action in this instance, which was also noted in the Attorney General’s letter to Mr. Morgan and Senator Dhingra (and cc:d to the PDC) concerning these complaints.  

 

PDC staff would note that Ms. Dhingra was a first-time candidate for public office in 2017, and her Campaign filed a total of 692 campaign finance reports with the PDC for the 2017 election cycle that included 46 amended C-4 reports and 31 amended C-3 reports.  A number of the allegations listed in the eight complaints concerned information disclosed on amended C-3 and C-4 reports filed by the Campaign.  The Campaign stated the amendments were filed “to correct the record and the C-4 reports were filed as soon as the error was discovered. All reports filed were as accurate as the campaign was aware of at the time, and no concealment was intended.”

 

Staff’s review of the amended C-3 and C-4 reports filed by the Campaign, Mr. Lo’s frequent communications with PDC staff concerning filing questions both by telephone and by email, and the timeliness in which the Campaign filed amended C-3 and C-4 reports indicated the Campaign made a good faith effort to comply with the reporting requirements.  The Campaign did everything requested by PDC staff to facilitate transparency in one the most expensive legislative elections in Washington State history.  Based on this information, the PDC dismissed the allegations listed in the eight complaints concerning amended reports in accordance with RCW 42.17A.755(1).  

 

The PDC also dismissed the allegations listed in the eight complaints that were based “on information and belief” in accordance with RCW 42.17A.755(1), since the complainant failed to provide any evidence to support or substantiate those allegations. 

 

Finally, PDC staff dismissed the remaining allegations in the eight complaints filed against Senator Dhingra as referenced in the attached complaint return letter in accordance with RCW 42.17A.755(1).

(OCT 2017) RCW 42.17A.235, RCW 42.17A.240 Case Closed with Written Warning

The complaint alleged that the 29th Legislative District Democratic Party Organization violated RCW 42.17A.235 and .240 by: (1) failing to timely file Campaign Summary Receipts and Expenditure reports (C-4 reports), and several Monetary Contribution reports (C-3 reports); and (2) failing to report debts and obligations.

Pursuant to WAC to WAC 390-37-060(1) the 29th District Democratic Party Organization will receive a formal written warning concerning the failure to comply with the legal requirement of candidates to report contributions and expenditures, as provided by RCW 42.17A.235. The formal written warning will include staff's expectation the 29th District Democratic Party Organization files timely and complete reports in future years in accordance with PDC laws and rules. The Commission will consider the formal written warning in deciding on further Commission action if there are future violations of PDC laws or rules.


The PDC has closed the matter, and will not be conducting a more formal investigation or pursuing further enforcement action in this case.

A total of ten complaints were filed against Manka Dhingra, a candidate for State Senator in the 45th Legislative District in 2017, with the first two complaints having already been resolved.  The remaining eight complaints contained numerous allegations of violations of RCW 42.17A. for hundreds of campaign contribution and expenditure activities as disclosed on Candidate Registrations (C-1 reports), Monetary Contributions reports (C-3 reports), and Summary Full Campaign Contribution and Expenditure reports (C-4 reports), filed by the Friends of Manka Dhingra Campaign (Campaign).  

 

The eight complaints were combined into one letter for the following cases: (1) Complaint #3 (PDC Case 15366); (2) Complaint #4 (PDC Case 18600); (3) Complaint #5 (PDC Case 21175); (4) Complaint #6 (PDC Case 21336); (5) Complaint #7 (PDC Case 23120); (6) Complaint #8 (PDC Case 24233); (7) Complaint #9 (PDC Case 25507); and (8) Complaint #10 (PDC Case 27088).  

 

PDC staff found no evidence of a material violation that would require conducting a more formal investigation into the eight complaints filed against Senator Dhingra or pursuing enforcement action in this instance, which was also noted in the Attorney General’s letter to Mr. Morgan and Senator Dhingra (and cc:d to the PDC) concerning these complaints.  

 

PDC staff would note that Ms. Dhingra was a first-time candidate for public office in 2017, and her Campaign filed a total of 692 campaign finance reports with the PDC for the 2017 election cycle that included 46 amended C-4 reports and 31 amended C-3 reports.  A number of the allegations listed in the eight complaints concerned information disclosed on amended C-3 and C-4 reports filed by the Campaign.  The Campaign stated the amendments were filed “to correct the record and the C-4 reports were filed as soon as the error was discovered. All reports filed were as accurate as the campaign was aware of at the time, and no concealment was intended.”

 

Staff’s review of the amended C-3 and C-4 reports filed by the Campaign, Mr. Lo’s frequent communications with PDC staff concerning filing questions both by telephone and by email, and the timeliness in which the Campaign filed amended C-3 and C-4 reports indicated the Campaign made a good faith effort to comply with the reporting requirements.  The Campaign did everything requested by PDC staff to facilitate transparency in one the most expensive legislative elections in Washington State history.  Based on this information, the PDC dismissed the allegations listed in the eight complaints concerning amended reports in accordance with RCW 42.17A.755(1).  

 

The PDC also dismissed the allegations listed in the eight complaints that were based “on information and belief” in accordance with RCW 42.17A.755(1), since the complainant failed to provide any evidence to support or substantiate those allegations. 

 

Finally, PDC staff dismissed the remaining allegations in the eight complaints filed against Senator Dhingra as referenced in the attached complaint return letter in accordance with RCW 42.17A.755(1).

A total of ten complaints were filed against Manka Dhingra, a candidate for State Senator in the 45th Legislative District in 2017, with the first two complaints having already been resolved.  The remaining eight complaints contained numerous allegations of violations of RCW 42.17A. for hundreds of campaign contribution and expenditure activities as disclosed on Candidate Registrations (C-1 reports), Monetary Contributions reports (C-3 reports), and Summary Full Campaign Contribution and Expenditure reports (C-4 reports), filed by the Friends of Manka Dhingra Campaign (Campaign).  

 

The eight complaints were combined into one letter for the following cases: (1) Complaint #3 (PDC Case 15366); (2) Complaint #4 (PDC Case 18600); (3) Complaint #5 (PDC Case 21175); (4) Complaint #6 (PDC Case 21336); (5) Complaint #7 (PDC Case 23120); (6) Complaint #8 (PDC Case 24233); (7) Complaint #9 (PDC Case 25507); and (8) Complaint #10 (PDC Case 27088).  

 

PDC staff found no evidence of a material violation that would require conducting a more formal investigation into the eight complaints filed against Senator Dhingra or pursuing enforcement action in this instance, which was also noted in the Attorney General’s letter to Mr. Morgan and Senator Dhingra (and cc:d to the PDC) concerning these complaints.  

 

PDC staff would note that Ms. Dhingra was a first-time candidate for public office in 2017, and her Campaign filed a total of 692 campaign finance reports with the PDC for the 2017 election cycle that included 46 amended C-4 reports and 31 amended C-3 reports.  A number of the allegations listed in the eight complaints concerned information disclosed on amended C-3 and C-4 reports filed by the Campaign.  The Campaign stated the amendments were filed “to correct the record and the C-4 reports were filed as soon as the error was discovered. All reports filed were as accurate as the campaign was aware of at the time, and no concealment was intended.”

 

Staff’s review of the amended C-3 and C-4 reports filed by the Campaign, Mr. Lo’s frequent communications with PDC staff concerning filing questions both by telephone and by email, and the timeliness in which the Campaign filed amended C-3 and C-4 reports indicated the Campaign made a good faith effort to comply with the reporting requirements.  The Campaign did everything requested by PDC staff to facilitate transparency in one the most expensive legislative elections in Washington State history.  Based on this information, the PDC dismissed the allegations listed in the eight complaints concerning amended reports in accordance with RCW 42.17A.755(1).  

 

The PDC also dismissed the allegations listed in the eight complaints that were based “on information and belief” in accordance with RCW 42.17A.755(1), since the complainant failed to provide any evidence to support or substantiate those allegations. 

 

Finally, PDC staff dismissed the remaining allegations in the eight complaints filed against Senator Dhingra as referenced in the attached complaint return letter in accordance with RCW 42.17A.755(1).
