The Public Disclosure Commission (PDC) has completed its review of the complaint filed by Glen Morgan on June 5, 2018, against Randall Gaylord, the incumbent San Juan County Prosecutor and a candidate seeking re-election to that office in 2018. The complaint alleged that Mr. Gaylord may have violated RCW 42.17A.240 by failing to properly breakdown expenditures listed on the Summary Full Campaign Contributions and Expenditures report (C-4 report), including the details of the services or goods provided.
PDC staff reviewed the allegations listed in the complaint, the statutes, rules and reporting requirements, the C-4 reports filed by the Re-elect Gaylord Prosecutor Committee, and the response from Mr. Gaylord to the allegations listed in the complaint.
Mr. Gaylord took immediate corrective action and filed an amended C-4 report for May of 2018 as soon as he became aware of the allegations in the complaint. In addition, the amended C-4 report was filed four days prior to the required due date of June 10, 2018, and therefore did not impact the public.
Based on our findings, there is no evidence of a violation, and the PDC has closed this case and will not be conducting a more formal investigation into the complaint or pursuing further enforcement action.Disposition: Case Closed with No Evidence of Violations (Resolved 09/14/2018)
