The Public Disclosure Commission (PDC) has completed its review of the complaint Joseph Colombo filed on January 8, 2020. The complaint alleged that Kelly Chambers, a 2020 Candidate for State Representative for Legislative District 25 may have violated RCW 42.17A.560 for accepting contributions during the Legislative Session Freeze, the period beginning on the thirtieth day before the date a regular legislative session convenes and continuing through the date of final adjournment.
PDC staff reviewed the allegations; the applicable statutes, rules, and reporting requirements; the response provided by the Respondent; the applicable PDC reports filed by the 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.
Based on our findings staff has determined that, in this instance there is no evidence that supports the 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 02/18/2020)
