The Public Disclosure Commission (PDC) has completed its review of the complaint filed by Glen Morgan on May 1, 2018. The complaint alleged that Jenny Durkan, a 2017 candidate for City of Seattle Mayor, may have violated RCW 42.17A.240 by failing to provide the required description for two in-kind contributions received by the Campaign and disclosed on the Summary Campaign Contributions and Expenditure report (C-4 report) as being from the candidate, Ms. Durkan.
PDC staff reviewed the allegations listed in the complaint, the statutes and rules, the C-4 reports filed by the Jenny Durkan for Seattle Campaign (Campaign), and the May 8, 2018 emailed response from Phil Lloyd, Treasurer for the Campaign.
Based on these findings, staff has determined that in this instance, there is no evidence to support a finding of a violation by the Jenny Durkan Campaign which would warrant 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.
