Case #44062
Respondent name: Monica Stonier
Complainant name: Cheryl Aichele

The Public Disclosure Commission (PDC) has completed its review of the complaint filed on December 12, 2018. Your complaint alleged that Monica Stonier, State Representative, in the 49th Legislative District running for re-election in the 2018 election, may have violated RCW 42.17A.405 for accepting over-limit contributions from the committee Southwest Wa Electricians PAC of WA (PAC 48), including a direct monetary contribution and a contribution made through the Clark County Democratic Central Committee earmarked for the Elect Monica Stonier campaign.

PDC staff reviewed the allegations; the applicable statutes, rules, and reporting requirements; the response provided by Marsha Manning, Treasurer for Elect Monica Stonier; the applicable PDC reports filed by Respondent; and queried the Respondent’s data in the PDC contribution and expenditure database, to determine whether the record supports a finding of one or more violations.

No evidence was found to indicate that funds received by CCDCC from PAC 48 were earmarked as defined in RCW 42.17A.460 by PAC 48 or otherwise specifically intended to benefit the Elect Monica Stonier campaign.

Based on this information, the PDC finds that no further action is warranted and has dismissed this matter in accordance with RCW 42.17A.755(1).
