Attorney General Tom Horne will defend himself against a new election law complaint without an outside lawyer.

Horne spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham said Tuesday that the Republican will respond to the complaint filed with the Secretary of State and Arizona Citizens Clean Election Commission by a June 2 deadline.

Grisham says Horne is a good attorney and perfectly capable of defending himself against what he says are false claims.

The election-law complaint filed by a former staffer alleges Horne’s executive staff did extensive work on his re-election campaign. The staffer’s lawyer sent Horne a letter saying he is personally responsible for retaining records because he no longer has a lawyer.

Attorney Tom Ryan had advised Horne’s previous attorney to retain the records but Horne lawyer Dennis Wilenchik withdrew as counsel Monday.

  1. Love what Horne has done for conservatives, his record speaks to why some of the GOP/AZGOP want gone, to turn this state BLUE. http://www.electtomhorne.com/priorities/
