Apple hammered by PDC

Brought to you with an assist from Olympia Bureau Chief Rich RoeslerSpokane City Councilman Bob Apple was fined $4,200 – the maximum under the state’s disclosure law – for failing to file spending records from last year’s re-election campaign.

The state Public Disclosure Commission Thursday ruled Apple violated three different areas of campaign reporting laws:
He was between 17 and 80 days late in filing some reports and never filed others.
He didn’t file his campaign reports electronically, which was required because of the amount he spent in his previous campaign.
He didn’t update his registration forms when he changed treasurers.
