State Republicans fined for violating reporting requirements in 2010 elections

State Republicans Fined for Accounting Errors in Funding Steve Litzow, Others in 2010 Election

“The Washington State Public Disclosure Commission (PDC) approved a $6,700 fine against the Washington State Republican Party Aug. 19 for the late disclosure of donations and spending worth hundreds of thousands in the final weeks of the 2010 elections — including a $60,000 cash donation to Mercer Island resident and 41st District State Senator Steve Litzow (R-Mercer Island)….

PDC concluded State Republicans violated election reporting requirements five times in October 2010

In Sen. Litzow’s case, the WSRP gave his campaign $60,000 on Oct. 8, 2010, but failed to report it on a C-4 receipts and expenditures form until Oct. 27 — 15 business days late. Litzow’s campaign properly reported receiving the donation on Oct. 12.”
