The complaint alleged that Annette Cleveland may have violated RCW 41.17A.235, 240 and .430 for failure to accurately and timely report contributions, expenditures and debt, and unauthorized transfer of campaign funds.

Therefore, PDC staff is administratively closing the complaint filed with the PDC against Annette Cleveland as noted in this letter, without taking any action, completing a review or pursuing enforcement action.
Allegation One: Violation of RCW 42.17A.235 for failure to accurately and timely file C-3 and C-4 reports.
