The Public Disclosure Commission (PDC) has completed its review of the complaint Glen Morgan filed on October 25, 2019. The complaint alleged that Nicolas Duchastel (Respondent), a Candidate for City Council Member for City of Woodinville may have violated RCW 42.17A.320 for failure to provide sponsor identification, including the name and address of the sponsor, on political advertising.
PDC staff reviewed the allegations; the applicable statutes, rules, and reporting requirements and 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, failure to provide sponsor identification on political advertising does not amount to a violation that warrants further investigation.
PDC staff is reminding Nicolas Duchastel about the importance of including sponsor identification, including name and address of the sponsor, on political advertising in accordance with the statutes and rules.
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 Reminder (Resolved 11/08/2019)
