The Public Disclosure Commission (PDC) has completed its review of the complaint filed by Dmitri Iglitizin on January 30, 2018. The complaint alleged that Hans Zeiger, an incumbent State Senator and a candidate seeking election to that office in 2016, violated RCW 42.17A.220, .235 and .240 by failing to timely deposit and timely file Monetary Contributions reports (C-3 reports). The Attorney General’s Office (AGO) notified PDC staff that their office would not be taking action against Hans Zeiger concerning the Citizen Action Notice filed with their office.
PDC staff reviewed the allegations listed in the complaint in light of PDC laws and rules in order to determine whether a formal investigation or enforcement action is warranted. Staff reviewed the Monetary Contributions reports (C-3 reports), filed by the Hans Zeiger Campaign (Campaign), and the August 4, 2018 response letter from Hans Zeiger.
Based on our findings, the PDC staff found no evidence of a material violation that would require conducting a more formal investigation into the complaint or pursuing enforcement action in this instance.
PDC staff has reminded Mr. Zeiger of the importance of timely depositing monetary contributions received within five business days for all future campaigns.
Therefore, PDC is returning the complaint filed against Senator Hans Zeiger without taking any formal action.
