The Public Disclosure Commission (PDC) has completed its review of the complaint Glen Morgan filed on September 9, 2017. The Complaint alleged that Joan McBride may have violated RCW 42.17A.235 for failure to timely and accurately file Monetary Contribution reports (C-3 reports) and Summary Full Campaign Contribution and Expenditure reports (C-4 reports), disclosing contributions and expenditures undertaken by the Campaign; RCW 42.17A.240 for failure to accurately and completely report debts and obligations; RCW 42.17A.240, WAC 390-16-037, and WAC 390-16-205 for failure to provide detailed breakdowns of expenditures.
PDC staff reviewed the allegations; the applicable statutes, rules, and reporting requirements; the responses provided by Joan McBride; the applicable PDC reports filed by Respondent; and queried the Respondent’s data in the PDC contribution and expenditure database, to determine whether the record supports a finding of one or more violations.
PDC staff is reminding Joan McBride about the importance of the accurate and timely disclosure of all contribution and expenditure activities, and the complete and timely filings of all future PDC reports in accordance with the statutes and rules.
Based on this information, the PDC finds that no further action is warranted and has dismissed this matter in accordance with RCW 42.17A.755(1).
