That time Tanisha Harris got a letter from the PDC

Democratic state representative candidate Tanisha Harris had a run-in with the state’s election watchdog. It was really not a big deal.

It all stemmed from Harris’ 2016 run for Clark County Council, which she narrowly lost. In July of 2016, Phil Haggerty filed a complaint with the Washington State Public Disclosure Commission, the state’s election monitor, regarding her campaign for county council.

“Candidate Tanisha Harris has signs all over the Vancouver area, yet shows not expenses for her campaign,” wrote Haggerty in his brief complaint. “How can that be?”

PDC staff looked into the complaint and found that Harris had turned in a campaign finance report 13 days late. Harris was let off with a written warning. Hopefully, she’s learned her lesson.
