Candidate for WA governor warned about profiting from campaign purchases

OLYMPIA, Wash. — A northeastern Washington sheriff running for governor was warned by the state’s Public Disclosure Commission about using money from the sale of his book to prop up his campaign.

A complaint was first filed against Loren Culp in February 2020.

The PDC opened a formal investigation and found that Culp’s campaign purchased 732 copies of “American Cop” and used the books at a fundraiser, which resulted in the campaign receiving a total of $10,230 in net contributions from the proceeds of the sale.

According to the PDC’s General Counsel Sean Flynn, the PDC found Culp stood in a position to profit from goods sold to his own campaign.

“The sale of the book American Cop was directly related to Loren Culp’s campaign for Governor of Washington State, and was part of the campaign fundraising strategy. While the sales prices of the books sold to the Campaign were based on the fair market value, due to his ownership interest in American Cop, Mr. Culp nonetheless personally benefitted from the sale of the books purchased directly from the publisher at the wholesale price,” the PDC stated.
