The Public Disclosure Commission (PDC) has completed its review of the complaint Daniel Barnes filed on June 7, 2020. The complaint alleged that Bryan White (Respondent), a Candidate for State Representative Position 2 for Legislative District 17 may have violated RCW 42.17A.205 & .700 for failure to timely file campaign registration (C-1) and personal financial affairs statement (F-1); and RCW 42.17A.235 for failure to timely report contributions and expenditures (C-3 & C-4).
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 timely file the C-1 and F-1 does not amount to 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 06/24/2020)
