The Public Disclosure Commission (PDC) has completed its review of the complaint filed by Glen Morgan on April 10, 2018. The complaint alleged that the 17th Legislative District Democratic Central Committee may have violated RCW 42.17A.235, .265, .205, .220, .320, .255 for failure to timely and accurately disclose contributions, expenditures, books of account, committee registration, and sponsor ID.
Based on these findings, staff has determined that in this instance, failure to timely file a small number of C-3 and C-4 reports covering minor activity, does not amount to an actual material violation warranting further investigation. PDC staff is reminding the 17th Legislative District Democratic Central Committee about the importance of the timely disclosure of all contribution and expenditure activities, including prompt amendments when necessary, in future years even when they are not supporting candidates by making monetary or in-kind contributions.
Based on this information, 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 further enforcement action in this case.Disposition: Case Closed with Reminder (Resolved 11/14/2018)
