Ex-AZ lawmaker charged with impersonating son in Ca.

California prosecutors say a former Arizona legislator who went to prison in a 1990 corruption scandal used his son’s identity to get a California ID card and real estate license so he could work as a broker and teach a real estate class.

U-T San Diego  reported Thursday that Don Kenney has been charged with five felonies including perjury, forgery and impersonating his son, a Washington state attorney.

Kenney appeared in court Wednesday. His arraignment was postponed to August and he was released without bail. He declined comment when reached by the newspaper.

Kenney was chairman of the House Judiciary Committee in Arizona in 1990 when he pleaded guilty to bribery, money laundering and other felonies stemming from attempts to legalize casino gambling. He served 14 months in prison.
