The Public Disclosure Commission (PDC) has completed its review of the complaint filed by Dmitri Iglitzin on January 30, 2018. The complaint alleged that Thomas Dent, an incumbent State Representative and a candidate seeking re-election to that office in 2018, violated RCW 42.17A.235 and .240 by failing to timely file the Monetary Contributions reports (C-3 reports) and Summary Full Campaign Contribution and Expenditure reports (C-4 reports).
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), and Summary Full Campaign Contribution and Expenditure reports (C-4 reports), filed by the Thomas Dent Campaign (Campaign), and the July 20, 2018 response letter from Representative Dent.
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. Although PDC will not be conducting a formal investigation into these allegations or taking enforcement action in this matter, staff has reminded Mr. Dent of the expectation of filing timely and accurate reports disclosing campaign contribution and expenditure for all future campaigns.
Based on this information, the PDC has dismissed the complaint in accordance with RCW 42.17A.755(1)
Case Closed with Reminder (Resolved 11/19/2018)
