Case #81032
Respondent name: Let People Vote / Reject R-88
Complainant name: Joseph Shoji Lachman

The complaint alleged Let People Vote, a ballot measure committee formed to oppose Referendum 88, a statewide ballot proposition on the 2019 general election ballot, violated RCW 42.17A.435 by concealing the true source of contributions received by the ballot committee.

PDC staff reviewed the allegations, evidence you provided, applicable statutes and rules and the response provided by Kan Qiu to determine whether the record supports a finding of one or more violations. 

Staff has determined, in this instance, the alleged violation of RCW 42.17A.435 does not amount to a violation warranting further investigation as there is no evidence purchases were made for items and services at other than market value. 

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) and WAC 390-37-070.

Disposition: Case Closed with No Evidence of Violations (Resolved 02/08/2021)
Date opened: 12/01/2020
Area of Law: RCW 42.17A.435
