Published:
SEATTLE -- The King County ombudsman has decided not to pursue an investigation of Republican gubernatorial candidate Rob McKenna.
Ombudsman director Amy Calderwood said in a letter to McKenna released Friday that too much time has passed since he worked on the county council about a decade ago. She says memories have surely dimmed and witnesses may be unavailable.
Two people had filed complaints against McKenna in May after an Associated Press report found that his office discussed political issues during staff meetings and used a county fax machine to send an invitation on behalf of the state Republican Party. McKenna's government files contained hundreds of campaign documents, including fundraising lists.
Ethics laws prohibit government workers from using government facilities for "personal convenience" or political campaigns.
