The Public Disclosure Commission (PDC) has completed its review of the complaint filed by Bernard Brockwell on October 18, 2017. The complaint alleged that Shelly Short, a candidate for State Senator for Legislative District 7, may have violated RCW 42.17A.220 for failure to deposit contributions within five business days of receipt and RCW 42.17A.235 for failure to timely and accurately file Monetary Contribution reports (C-3 reports) disclosing contributions and deposits on behalf of the campaign.
PDC staff reviewed the allegations; the applicable statutes, rules, and reporting requirements; and the applicable PDC reports filed by Respondent; to determine whether the record supports a finding of one or more violations.
Based on our findings staff has determined that, in this instance, no evidence supports a finding of an actual violation warranting further investigation.
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).Status: Case Closed with No Evidence of Violations
