Case Closed with Reminder
Description: 

The complaint alleged that Lisa Homer violated RCW 42.17A.320 by failing to identify the complete sponsor identification on political advertising sponsored by her campaign, including and include the sponsor's address and the words “Paid for” or “Sponsored by.” 

In her response, Ms. Homer stated that she was aware of the requirement to include the sponsor identification on her political advertisements, but she ordered one mailer from an out-of-state company in Florida, and she did not see a final proof of the piece prior to it being printed. 

PDC staff reminded Ms. Homer about the importance of compliance with RCW 42.17A.320, including the identification of the sponsor and the sponsor's address on political advertising, in future years in accordance with PDC laws and rules. Based on this information, the PDC has dismissed this matter in accordance with RCW 42.17A.755(1).
