The Public Disclosure Commission (PDC) has completed its review of the complaint Jeremy Wood filed on April 29, 2020. The complaint alleged that Alisha Beeler (Respondent), a candidate for State Representative for the 26th Legislative District may have violated RCW 42.17A.235 and .240 for failure to timely and accurately report expenditures or in-kind contributions for political advertising.
PDC staff reviewed the allegations; the applicable statutes, rules, and reporting requirements; the responses 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, failure to itemize an expenditure does not amount to a violation that warrants further investigation.
Alisha Beeler made minor or ministerial errors on required reports, which did not materially impact the public interest. Upon notification of these errors, Alisha Beeler timely amended their reports, making the necessary technical corrections as requested by staff.
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: Request for Technical Correction (Resolved 05/18/2020)
