Case Closed with No Evidence of Violations
Description: 

The Public Disclosure Commission (PDC) has completed its review of the complaint filed by Larry Seaquist on October 2, 2018. The Complaint alleged that Jesse Young, incumbent and candidate for State Representative in the 26th Legislative District in 2018, may have violated RCW 42.17A.555 for using public facilities by posting campaign signs on office space paid for with legislative funds. PDC staff reviewed the applicable statutes, rules, and the response provided by Representative Young, to determine your allegations support a finding of one or more violations. Based on our findings staff has determined that, in this instance, no evidence supports a finding an actual violation warranting further investigation. For your information, RCW 42.17A.555 does not apply to incumbent legislative candidates as they are covered by the Legislative Ethics Board. Based on this information, the PDC finds that no further action is warranted and has dismissed this matter in accordance with RCW 42.17A.755(1).
