The Public Disclosure Commission (PDC) has completed its review of the complaint filed by Mary Brown on July 20, 2018. The complaint alleged that WA Forward may have violated RCW 42.17A.240 for failure to accurately disclose address information for vendors on the C-4 report.
Based on our findings, staff has determined that in this instance, the failure to provide accurate address information for expenditures does not amount to a material violation warranting further investigation. WA Forward made minor or ministerial errors on required reports, which did not materially impact the public interest. Upon notification of noncompliance, the Campaign timely amended their reports, making the necessary technical corrections within 24 hours of receiving the complaint.
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: Request for Technical Correction (Resolved 09/11/2018)
