Case Closed with No Evidence of Violations

The Public Disclosure Commission (PDC) has completed its review of the complaint filed by Michael Killian on August 20, 2018. The complaint alleged that Jacqueline Lopez Giddens, a first-time candidate seeking the office of County Clerk for Franklin County, may have violated RCW 42.17A.235 for failure to timely and accurately file Monetary Contribution reports (C-3 reports) and Summary Full Campaign Contribution and Expenditure reports (C-4 reports) during the 2018 election campaign.    PDC staff reviewed the allegations, the statutes and rules, the C-3 and C-4 reports filed by the Committee to Elect Jacqueline Lopez Giddens (Campaign), and the responses from Jacqueline Lopez Giddens.  Based on our findings, staff has determined that no evidence supports a material violation warranting further investigation. The PDC has closed the matter, and will not be conducting a more formal investigation into your complaint or pursuing further enforcement action in this case.
