The complaint alleged Laurie Jinkins may have violated RCW 42.17A.700 and RCW 42.17A.710 by “failing to disclose a corporation, association, or entity on the F-1 Personal Financial Affairs Statement in which an office, ownership, partnership, or financial interest is held.” Specifically, it alleged Jinkins failed to report her controlling interest in LM PAC.
PDC staff reviewed the allegations listed in the complaint you filed, the statutes, rules and reporting requirements, and the response to the complaint provided by Taki V. Flevaris, attorney representing Laurie Jinkins.
Based on staff’s review, we found RCW 42.17A.710(1)(g) does not include “political committee” in the list of entities required to be reported on the F-1 Supplement, and historically, PDC staff has not advised F-1 filers to include political committees on the F-1 Supplement when the filer holds a position of committee officer in a political committee.
Based on these findings staff has determined that, in this instance, the failure to list LM PAC on an F-1 Supplement does not appear to be an actual violation warranting further investigation.
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).Disposition: Case Closed with No Evidence of Violations (Resolved 04/19/2019)
