The legal drama surrounding Initiative King Tim Eyman continues.

Attorney General bob Ferguson today announced the filing of campaign finance complaints against Eyman, three political committees, and their officers and treasurer, according to a press release.

Ferguson alleges that “shoddy accounting practices and improper disclosure of the source of funds for the committees and their ads” violated state law.

In related news, Ferguson announced in a press release last week that Eyman and his company reimbursed Ferguson’s office $10,000 to cover attorneys’ fees and costs. Additionally, Eyman’s political committees paid another $10,000, and signature-gathering firm Citizen Solutions paid an additional $12,969.50. Those payments come in the wake of Eyman, his political committees, and Citizen Solutions allegedly delaying Ferguson’s access to documents related to his investigation

Ferguson filed three separate cases on Friday in Thurston County Superior Court against the political committees and their principals — Eyman, Jack Fagan and Mike Fagan — and their treasurer, Barbara Smith.
