OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) - Republican leaders say the head of the state Public Disclosure Commission is biased in favor of Democrats and want her to resign.

In a letter, the GOP leaders said Evelyn Fielding Lopez has improperly intervened on behalf of a Democratic candidate in a contested state Senate race, the Seattle Times reported Thursday (https://bit.ly/2dMsP2y).

The Republicans are upset with the fact that she disputed the accuracy of a Republican political ad, something Lopez says was intended to solely provide accurate information about PDC actions.

State GOP chairwoman Susan Hutchison, House Minority Leader Dan Kristiansen and Senate Majority Leader Mark Schoesler wrote that they will file complaints again Lopez with the state executive ethics board and the Washington State Bar Association.

Lopez, a Democrat, said she would clarify inaccurate information about PDC actions if they were directed at Republican candidates too.
