Description: 

The Public Disclosure Commission (PDC) has completed its review of the complaint filed by Glen Morgan on November 21, 2018. The complaint alleged that the Kitsap County Democratic Central Committee may have violated RCW 42.17A.220 for failure to timely deposit contributions and .235 for failure to timely report contributions and expenditures.Based on our findings, staff has determined that in this instance, failure to timely deposit contributions and to timely report contribution and expenditure activity do not amount to actual material violations warranting further investigation.Pursuant to WAC 390-37-060(1)(b), Kitsap County Democratic Central Committee will receive a formal written warning concerning their failure to timely deposit contributions within five business days of receipt, and failure to timely report contribution and expenditure activity. The formal written warning will include staff’s expectation that Kitsap County Democratic Central Committee institutes procedures to ensure funds are timely deposited and reports are filed according to their statutory deadlines. The Commission will consider the formal written warning in deciding on further Commission action if there are future violations of PDC laws or rules.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.
