The Public Disclosure Commission (PDC) has completed its review of the complaint Andrew Saturn filed on October 15, 2019. The complaint alleged that Egan Orion (Respondent), a Candidate for City Council Member for City of Seattle may have violated RCW 42.17A.335 for false or defamatory statements in political advertisements.
PDC staff reviewed the allegations; the applicable statutes, rules, and reporting requirements; the response provided by the Respondent to determine whether the record supports a finding of one or more violations.
Based on our findings staff has determined that, in this instance, insufficient evidence supports a finding of a violation that warrants 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: Closed Administratively (Resolved 11/04/2019)
