Case #30918
Respondent name: Liz Pike
Complainant name: Dmitri Iglitzin

The Public Disclosure Commission (PDC) has completed its review of the complaint filed by Dmitri Iglitzin 
on January 30, 2018. The complaint alleged that that Liz Pike, an incumbent State 
Representative from the 18th Legislative District and a candidate seeking re-election to that office 
in 2016, may have violated RCW 42.17A.235 and .240 by failing to timely file Summary 
Campaign Contribution and Expenditure reports (C-4 reports) disclosing contribution and expenditure 
activities undertaken by her 2016 campaign.

While the 21-Day Pre-General Election C-4 report was not alleged in the complaint, staff believes the 
report was the most critical of the late filed C-4 reports since it contained time sensitive contribution and 
expenditure information after the ballots had already been mailed out, and prior to the November 8, 2016 
general election date. The late filed C-4 reports are mitigated by the fact the Campaign timely filed all 
Monetary Contributions reports (C-3 reports) for the 2016 election cycle, with many of the C-3 reports 
being filed electronically on the same day the contributions had been received and deposited. 

Based on our findings, staff has determined that in this instance, failure to timely file the C-4 reports of 
contributions and expenditures referenced above, does not amount to a material violation warranting 
further investigation. 

Pursuant to WAC 390-37-060(1 )(b), Liz Pike will receive a formal written warning concerning failure to 
timely file C-4 reports as provided in RCW 42.l 7A.235. The formal written warning will include staffs 
expectation that Liz Pike timely files C-4 reports during 2018 for her candidacy for Clark County 
Council, and any future campaigns in accordance with PDC laws and rules. The Commission will 
consider the formal written warning in deciding on further Commission action if there are future 
violations of PDC laws or rules. 

The PDC has closed the matter, and will not be conducting a more 
formal investigation into the complaint or pursuing further enforcement action in this case.
