Case #55267
Respondent name: Darcy Burner
Complainant name: Glen Morgan

The Public Disclosure Commission (PDC) has completed its review of the complaint filed on July 17, 2019. Your complaint alleged that Darcy Burner, a Candidate for State Representative in Legislative District 5 in 2016, may have violated RCW 42.17A.220(4) for accepting over limit anonymous contributions.

PDC staff reviewed the allegations; the applicable statutes, rules, and reporting requirements; the response provided by Jason Bennett, Treasurer; 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.

Staff’s review of the Monetary Contribution reports (C-3 reports) and Summary Full Campaign Contribution and Expenditure reports (C-4 reports) filed by Friends of Darcy Burner found the campaign could accept the greater amount of up to 1 percent of the total accumulated contributions.

Based on these findings, staff has determined that, in this instance, no evidence supports a finding of a 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).
