Description: 

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.
