Status of Investigations: 
Action Commenced by Citizen under RCW 42.17A.765

This complaint alleged that Tim Probst may have violated RCW 42.17A.235, .240, .205, .700, .430, .425, .220, .320 and .405 for failure to accurately and timely file C-3 and C-4 reports and report debt; properly break down expenses and list committee officers; and for unauthorized expenditure of funds by non-committee officers; and for not preserving books of account or certifying contribution and expenditure reports; and for unauthorized deposit of campaign funds by a non-treasurer; for failure to include sponsor ID and timely submit an F-1 statement; for donation of campaign funds to an unauthorized entity; and failure to refund contributions that exceed contribution limits.The allegations in this complaint were substantially similar to a citizen action complaint filed with the Attorney General's Office pursuant to RCW 42.17A.765. On April 13, 2018, the PDC became aware that a lawsuit containing substantially similar allegations was filed in Superior Court in the name of Washington State, giving the Superior Court primary jurisdiction over the substance of the complaint; the PDC deferred to their judgment in bringing the issues to resolution. The PDC dismissed this matter and did not conduct a more formal investigation into this complaint or pursue further enforcement action in this case.
