One would think that the highest law enforcement official in the State of Arizona would be well versed in the law. And given the number of complaints related to elections and campaigning against Tom Horne, one would think he would be paranoid about breaking the law – again.
Last Friday, former State Treasurer Dean Martin filed an election complaint against Attorney General Tom Horne over clear violations of the law regarding Horne’s campaign website and the use of taxpayer resources and the State Seal.
The complaint was filed with both the Secretary of State and Citizens Clean Elections Commission.
It is now one day before the Primary Election and the AG’s race is very close.
Given yet another apparent violation of the law by Tom Horne, I ask the readers of this blog to get out the vote for Mark Brnovich tomorrow.
A little historical perspective. In 1998, Tom McGovern and John Kaites battled it out in the Primary Election for the nomination for Arizona Attorney General. McGovern won but it cost him all his resources heading into the General Election. Who was his General Election opponent? Some little known US District Court Judge named Janet Napolitano. She didn’t have to spend any money going into her Primary Election and she beat Tom McGovern in the General Election by 50.4% to 47.5%. The rest is history because as we all know, she became Arizona’s Governor and ultimately, Obama’s DHS Cabinet Secretary.
Don’t let that happen again. Don’t be that voter. Don’t waste your vote on Tom Horne.
The election for Arizona Attorney General is critical.
Vote for Mark Brnovich tomorrow.
Here’s the official complaint:
