The Public Disclosure Commission (PDC) has completed its review of the complaint filed by Dave Churchman on April 4, 2018. The complaint alleged that Julie Door, a candidate seeking the office of State Representative in the 25th Legislative District in 2018, may have violated RCW 42.17A.205 by listing an address on the Candidate Registration (C-1 report) for the public inspection period of the campaign “books of account” that is outside of the Puyallup area.
PDC staff reviewed the allegations listed in the complaint, the statutes and rules, and the response from the Friends of Julie Door campaign.
While the “out of area” information is listed in section #10 of the C-1 report, that specific requirement is not codified in any PDC statute or has not been adopted by the Commission in any rule, and is therefore not required. Based on these findings, staff has determined that in this instance, there is no evidence that supports a finding of a material violation warranting further investigation.
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.Disposition: Case Closed with No Evidence of Violations (Resolved 05/03/2018)
