The complaint alleged Washington Against Discrimination Everywhere violated RCW 42.17A.235 and .240 by failing to timely and accurately disclose contributions and expenditures.
PDC staff reviewed the allegations; the documents you provided; the applicable statutes, rules, and reporting requirements; the applicable PDC reports; and the response from Toussaint L. Myricks, counsel for Washington Against Discrimination Everywhere, to determine whether the record supports a finding of one or more violations.
Staff has determined in this instance, the Committee’s failure to timely and accurately disclose contributions and expenditures does not amount to a finding of a violation that warrants further investigation.
However, pursuant to WAC 390-37-060(1)(d), Washington Against Discrimination Everywhere will receive a formal written warning concerning the failure to timely report the debt to DocuSign. The formal written warning includes staff’s expectation the Committee will, in the future, timely and accurately disclose contributions and expenditures as required by RCW 42.17A.235 and .240. The Commission will consider the formal written warning in deciding on future Commission action if there are future violations of PDC laws or 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 Written Warning (Resolved 12/18/2020)
