State Bar investigating Woods, Husk in Fiesta case

The State Bar of Arizona says it’s investigating former state Attorney General Grant Woods and the Fiesta Bowl’s ex-lawyer and chief lobbyist for their work at the bowl.

Gary Husk recommended Woods’ 2009 hiring to investigate allegations made by former and current Fiesta employees who claimed they were reimbursed for making political-campaign contributions.

Some bowl employees claim Husk conducted preliminary interviews, coached some employees on how to answer Woods’ questions and steered other employees who had been reimbursed away from Woods.

The Arizona Republic says that after a three-day inquiry, Woods concluded there was no credible evidence with regard to campaign contributions being reimbursed. Woods was paid $55,000 and allegedly gave $20,000 to Husk.

A Bar spokesman says it’s too early to know what sanctions could be imposed, if any.
