The Public Disclosure Commission (PDC) has completed its review of the complaint filed by Glen Morgan on April 10, 2018. The complaint alleged that NARAL Pro-Choice Washington PAC 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 our 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 NARAL Pro-Choice Washington PAC about the importance of the timely disclosure of all contribution and expenditure activities, specifically those occurring during the accelerated reporting schedule prior to and after any election in which the committee is participating.
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.
