Description: 

Stephanie Viskovich is a first-time candidate seeking the office of State Representative from the 46th Legislative District in 2016.  

 

On July 18, 2016, Gerald Pollet filed a complaint against Stephanie Viskovich, alleging that the People for Stephanie Viskovich violated RCW 42.17A.235 and .240 by failing to disclose contributions received on the Monetary Contribution reports (C-3 reports), and expenditures made and other campaign-related activities on the Summary Contributions and Expenditures report (C-4 report).   

 

Separate from the complaint, Ms. Viskovich  failed to file a a Personal Financial Affairs Statement (F-1 report) and she was sent a Brief Enforcement Hearing Notice by PDC staff on July 21, 2016.  

 

At the August 5, 2016, hearing Ms. Viskovich stated  that she attempted to file the F-1 electronically on-line on May 21, 2016, after she had filed the C-1 report.  She stated that she thought she had filed the F-1 report, but found out when she received the hearing notice that she had only saved the F-1 report.  

 

PDC staff researched the issue and reviewed the metadata for F-1 Report No. 100710307, which was e-filed on July 25, 2016.  The metadata indicated that an amended F-1 report had been received from Ms. Viskovich on July 19, 2016, which was two days prior to the hearing notice being sent out.

 

At the August 5, 2016 hearing, the Presiding Officer found no violation of RCW 42.17A.700 by Ms. Viskovich for failing to timely file the F-1 report, and closed the case administratively.
