The Public Disclosure Commission (PDC) has completed its review of the complaint filed by Dmitri Iglitzin on January 11, 2018. The complaint alleged that Lynda Wilson, 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 contributions and timely file Monetary Contributions reports (C-3 reports), and Summary Full Campaign Contribution and Expenditure reports (C-4 reports). On January 11, 2018, the Attorney General’s Office (AGO) notified PDC staff that their office would not be taking action against Lynda Wilson concerning the Citizen Action Notice filed with their office.
Based on these findings, staff has determined that in this instance, the requirement to timely deposit C-3 and file C-4 reports during the 2016 election does not appear to be an actual material violation warranting further investigation.
However, PDC staff is reminding Senator Wilson about the importance of timely depositing monetary contributions and filing expenditure activities in all future election campaigns.
Accordingly, the PDC has dismissed this matter in accordance with RCW 42.17A.755(1), and will not be conducting a more formal investigation into the complaint or pursuing enforcement action in this case.Disposition: Case Closed with Reminder (Resolved 11/06/2018)
