Fitzgibbon, Joseph - Alleged violations of RCW 42.17A concerning campaign and surplus activities undertaken during calendar years 2015 and 2016.
Case #11395 Respondent name:
The complaint alleges that Representative Joe Fitzgibbon, an incumbent State Representative from the 34th legislative District and a candidate seeking re-election to that office in 2016, violated RCW 42.17A on multiple occasions. Please see the attached complaint for more details.
PDC staff found no evidence of a material violation that would require conducting a more formal investigation or pursuing enforcement action in this matter, but staff is recommending that Representative Fitzgibbon reimburse the surplus funds account for the personal use and campaign use of the computer purchased using surplus funds, and reminding (warning) him that all future expenditures from his surplus funds account should only be for permissible activities.
