Description: 

The Public Disclosure Commission (PDC) has completed its review of the complaint filed by Kaylee Pigott on September 11, 2018. The Complaint alleged that the Save Our Security campaign may have violated RCW 42.17A.320 for failure to list the top five contributors on their campaign website. PDC staff reviewed the allegations, the statutes and rules, and the responses from Save Our Security. Based on our findings and the following facts, staff has determined that in this instance, the failure to disclose the top five contributors on the campaign website does not amount to a material violation warranting further investigation since: (1) Save Our Security was not required to list the top five contributors because the Campaign did not make website expenditures costing $1,000 or more. Based on this information, the PDC has dismissed this matter in accordance with RCW 42.17A.755(1), and will not be conducting a more formal investigation into your complaint or pursuing further enforcement action in this case.
