Case #57294
Respondent name: Summer O'Neill
Complainant name: CHRISTEN L ELLIS

The complaint alleged Cowlitz County Democrat Central Committee Chairperson Summer O’Neill may have violated RCW 42.17A.320 by failing to include sponsor identification on political advertising and RCW 42.17A.335 for political advertising that contains false statements constituting libel or defamation.

Staff has determined, in this instance, the alleged violation of failing to include sponsor identification on political advertising and political advertising that contains false statements about a candidate constituting libel or defamation, does not amount to 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).
