The Public Disclosure Commission (PDC) has completed its review of the complaint filed by Glen Morgan on June 20, 2018. The complaint alleged that Michael Chapman may have violated RCW 42.17A.235 for failure to timely report contributions and expenditures.
Based on our findings, staff has determined that in this instance, failure to timely report contributions and expenditures does not amount to a finding of material violations warranting further investigation.
Pursuant to WAC 390-37-060(1)(b), Michael Chapman will receive a formal written warning concerning failure to timely report contributions and expenditures. The formal written warning will include staff’s expectation that Michael Chapman file timely reports of contributions and expenditures in future years in accordance with PDC laws and rules. The Commission may consider the formal written warning in deciding on further Commission action if there are future violations of PDC laws or rules.
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: Case Closed with Written Warning (Resolved 08/09/2018)
