The complaint alleged violations of RCW 42.17A.235 and .240 by failing to timely file complete and accurate Monetary Contribution reports (C-3 reports) and Summary Full Campaign Contributions and Expenditure reports (C-4 reports).
For the 2017 election, the Campaign failed to timely file several of the required weekly C-3 reports, and there were instances where the Campaign failed to timely deposit contributions within five business days of receipt.
Ms. Woock indicated she experienced technical issues using the Online Reporting of Campaign Activities (ORCA), the electronic filing software provided by the PDC, and that her treasurer had problems with ORCA.
Based on these findings, and the facts that the Jeni Woock Campaign timely filed the 21-Day and 7-day Pre-General election C-4 reports, staff has determined that in this instance, failure to timely file reports of contributions and expenditures does not amount to a material violation warranting further investigation.
Pursuant to WAC to WAC 390-37-060(1) Jeni Woock will receive a formal written warning concerning the failure to comply with the reporting requirements and to timely and accurately file C-3 and C-4 reports disclosing contributions and expenditures activities in accordance with RCW 42.17A.235 and .240.
PDC staff has the expectation that Ms. Woock will timely file complete and accurate reports in future years in accordance with PDC laws and rules, including the timely depositing of contributions within five business days of receipt.
