Type Complaint Opinion 
Date 9/4/2012 
Number 12-02 
Topic Use of public resources to assist a campaign 
Respondent Rosemary McAuliffe 
It was alleged that public resources were used to conduct a telephonic, legislative town hall meeting during which participants were encouraged to vote for the Respondent.
Public resources were used, but there was no evidence that the meeting consisted of any thing more than a question and answer format which dealt with legislative issues.  The complaint was dismissed for lack of reasonable cause to believe the Act had been violated (RCW 42.52.180).
