Case #24635
Respondent name: Gina McCabe
Complainant name: Walter Smith

A complaint was filed against Gina McCabe, an incumbent State Representative for the 14th Legislative District and a candidate seeking re-election to that office in 2016, alleging violations of RCW 42.17A.235 by failing to timely file Monetary Contributions reports (C-3 reports) and Summary Full Campaign Contributions and Expenditures reports; and RCW 42.17A.430 by failing to timely disclose expenditure details for the Gina McCabe Surplus funds account. 

Gina Mosbrucker f/k/a Gina McCabe, completed an SOU, paid a $300 civil penalty, and acknowledged violations of RCW 42.17A.235 for failing to timely file C-3 and C-4 reports, resolving the allegations concerning the late filed reports.  Based on the facts that the Campaign hired a new Treasurer and timely filed C-3 and C-4 reports for the 2018 election, and brought the surplus funds account reports into compliance, PDC staff has determined that the facts in this instance do not amount to a finding of an actual violation warranting further investigation for the remaining allegations. 

PDC staff reminded Gina Mosbrucker about the importance of filing timely and accurate C-3 and C-4 reports, including for the surplus funds account, and to timely and accurately file C-3 and C-4 for her 2020 re-election campaign, and her surplus funds account in accordance with PDC laws and rules. 

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