Inslee campaign files complaint against McKenna

OLYMPIA — The campaign of Democratic gubernatorial candidate Jay Inslee has filed an ethics complaint against his Republican opponent.

Inslee’s aides said in documents released Friday that McKenna failed to promptly pay some campaign expenses. They also say he used his attorney general campaign account to pay for gubernatorial campaign dues.

McKenna campaign manager Randy Pepple dismissed the accusations, saying they were ticky-tack questions about minor bookkeeping issues. He also says McKenna’s side is planning to file a complaint against Inslee about the handling of transfers from his congressional campaign account.

Public Disclosure Commission officials will review the complaint to determine whether they want to pursue it further.
