Jim Cooper
Created Date: 
March 13, 2017
Status of Investigations: 
Action Commenced by Citizen under Chapter 42.17A RCW
Description: 

The complaint alleged that Jim Cooper, a candidate for Thurston County Council in 2016, may have violated RCW 42.17A or WAC 390 by filing late closing campaign finance reports, failing to obtain reimbursement of some expenditures, failing to report in-kind contributions, and failing to include spoken sponsor ID on political advertisements in the form of radio ads.

 

This complaint (and 10 other complaints filed against Mr. Cooper) was filed with the PDC and the Attorney General's Office as a Citizen Action Notice (CAN).   The AGO and the complainant have both filed lawsuits against Mr. Cooper concerning many of the same allegations listed in the 11 complaints.

 

Therefore, PDC staff is closing administratively the remaining six complaints filed against Jim Cooper as noted in this letter, without taking any action, completing our review, or pursuing enforcement action.
