On Wednesday, February 12, I received an email from Washington state’s Public Disclosure Commission (PDC), notifying me that, after assessing the facts, their agency has officially opened a formal investigation concerning my March 6, 2018, complaint filed against State Senator Doug Ericksen.

My PDC complaint alleges that Senator Ericksen (R-Ferndale), committed multiple violations of Washington state campaign finance law and rules in 2016 and 2017, in terms of his campaign surplus account spending.

The complaint was filed after an extensive review of PDC Cash Receipts and Expenditure reports filed by Senator Ericksen’s “Douglas J. Ericksen (Committee to Elect Doug Ericksen Surplus Account),” and of FOIA records released by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

Here is a link to detailed information regarding my PDC complaint:
