The Public Disclosure Commission (PDC) has completed its review of the complaint filed by Glen Morgan on June 18, 2018. The complaint alleged that Linda Oosterman may have violated RCW 42.17A.235 for failure to properly report the filing fee and RCW 42.17A.235 for failure to identify the employer and occupation for a loan.
PDC Staff has determined that the alleged non-compliance that appears to constitute violations of PDC laws and rules made by Linda Oosterman are remedial in nature, and do not warrant further investigation or enforcement action. They involved expenditures totaling no more than $500, occurred more than 30 days before the election, were inadvertent and minor in nature, and did not materially affect the public interest. Linda Oosterman took corrective action as required by law for a remedial violation (within 5 business days after notification by PDC staff, or within 21 days after a report was due to be filed). Linda Oosterman also substantially met all other required filing due dates within the previous 12-month period.
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.Disposition: Resolved as Remedial (Resolved 08/06/2018)
