The complaint alleged Laurie Jinkins may have violated RCW 42.17A.235 and .240 (1) by failing to timely and accurately file Monetary Contributions reports (C-3 reports) and Summary Full Campaign Contributions and Expenditures reports (C-4 reports), disclosing contributions and expenditures and (2) by failing to timely and accurately disclose debt and (3) by failing to breakdown sub-vendor information for expenditures disclosed on C-4 reports.
PDC staff reviewed the allegations; the applicable statutes, rules, and reporting requirements; the response provided by Melissa Pfeifer, treasurer for Friends of Laurie Jinkins, and the applicable PDC reports and data in the PDC contribution and expenditure database filed by the Committee, to determine whether the record supports a finding of one or more violations.
Staff determined in this instance, the failure to breakdown sub-vendor information for expenditures disclosed on one C-4 report does not amount to an actual violation warranting further investigation.
PDC staff is reminding Friends of Laurie Jinkins about the importance of the requirements regarding filing accurate and timely reports in future years in accordance with PDC laws 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).
