The Public Disclosure Commission (PDC) has completed its review of the complaint filed by Glen Morgan on October 12, 2017. The complaint alleged that 49th District Democrats, a bona fide political party, 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; and RCW 42.17A.240, WAC 390-16-037, and WAC 390-16-205 for failure to accurately and completely disclose debts and obligations, and for failure to provide detailed descriptions of expenditures including the number of items printed, and sub-vendors utilized by the campaign.
PDC staff reviewed the allegations; the applicable statutes, rules, and reporting requirements; the responses provided by the 49th District Democrats; the applicable PDC reports filed by Respondent; the Complaint filed in Thurston County Superior Court; 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.
Based on our findings, the PDC has administratively closed the matter and will not be conducting a more formal investigation into the complaint or pursuing further enforcement action.
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).Disposition: Action Commenced by Citizen under Chapter 42.17A RCW (Resolved 06/17/2019)
