The Public Disclosure Commission (PDC) has completed its review of the complaint filed by Glen Morgan on April 11, 2018. The complaint alleged that Michael Lilliquist may have violated RCW 42.17A.235, .265, .205, .320, and .255 by failing to timely and accurately disclose contributions, expenditures, books of account, committee registration, and sponsor ID.
PDC staff reviewed the allegations listed in the complaint you filed, the statutes, rules and reporting requirements, the Campaign Registrations (C-1s), Monetary Contribution reports (C-3 reports), and Summary Full Campaign Contribution and Expenditure Reports (C-4 reports).
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.
Pursuant to WAC 390-37-060(1)(b), Mr. Lilliquist will receive a formal written warning concerning failure to timely file C-3 and C-4 reports. The formal written warning will convey staff’s expectation that Mr. Lilliquist will fully comply with the requirement to timely file contribution and expenditure reports in future years 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 and rules.
The PDC has closed this matter, and will not be conducting a more formal investigation into the complaint or pursuing further enforcement action in this case. Based on this information, the PDC has dismissed the complaint in accordance with RCW 42.17A.755(1)(a).Disposition: Case Closed with Written Warning (Resolved 11/16/2018)
