The Public Disclosure Commission (PDC) has completed its initial review of the Complaint filed by Glen Morgan on August 23, 2018. The Complaint alleged that Marcus Riccelli may have violated RCW 42.17A.235 and RCW 42.17A.240 for failure to timely and accurately report in-kind contributions for legal services from the Harry Truman Fund.
Based on our findings, staff has determined that in this instance, misattribution of in-kind contributions that were timely disclosed does not amount to an actual material violation warranting further investigation.
Marcus Riccelli made minor or ministerial errors on required reports, which did not materially impact the public interest. Upon notification of noncompliance, Marcus Riccelli timely amended their reports, making the necessary technical corrections.
The PDC has closed the matter, and will not be conducting a more formal investigation into your complaint or pursuing further enforcement action in this case.
