Gregerson, Jennifer: Violation of RCW 42.17A.235, .240 for failure to accurately, timely, and properly report contributions, expenditures, debt, loans, offices held, sponsor ID. (OCT 2017)
Case #27204 Respondent name:
The complaint alleged that Jennifer Gregerson may have violated RCW 42.17A.235 and .240 by: (1) failing to timely file Campaign Summary Receipts and Expenditures reports (C-4), and several Monetary Contributions reports (C-3); (2) failing to provide the proper reporting breakdown for a number of expenditures made by the campaign; (3) failing to report debts and obligations; and violations of RCW 42.17A.700 and .710 by failing to accurately file and amend the Personal Financial Affairs Statement (F-1).
PDC staff reviewed the allegations; the applicable statutes, rules, and reporting requirements; the November 4, 2017 response Jennifer Gregerson sent to the Washington State Attorney General (ATG); and the applicable PDC reports and data in the PDC contribution and expenditure database filed by Jennifer Gregerson, to determine whether the record supports a finding of one or more violations.
Gregerson made minor or ministerial errors on the F-1 report and several of the C-3 and C-4 reports filed for the 2017 election, including the sub-vendor breakdown and details of certain expenditures. Upon notification of these errors, Gregerson timely amended her F-1, C-3 and C-4 reports making the necessary technical corrections.
Based on these findings staff has determined that, in this instance, the failure to timely file C-3 and C-4 reports, disclose orders placed, and provide the proper breakdown for expenditures does not amount to an actual violation warranting further investigation.
However, PDC staff is reminding Jennifer Gregerson of the importance of timely and accurate disclosure of campaign contribution and expenditure information, including timely filing C-3 and C-4 reports, disclosing orders placed, and including a proper breakdown of expenditures.
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).
