Using his accuser’s own words against him, Attorney General Tom Horne emphatically denied allegations that he illegally collaborated with an independent expenditure campaign in 2010 and labeled the prosecutor’s actions as a tactic aimed at preserving his job.

Federal authorities are investigating Attorney General Tom Horne over allegations that he illegally collaborated with an independent expenditure committee that spent more than a half-million dollars on negative ads against his Democratic opponent in 2010, the Arizona Capitol Times has learned.
A complaint filed in February by a prosecutor in Horne’s own office - and a onetime political ally of Horne - alleges that the attorney general collaborated with an independent expenditure called Business Leaders for Arizona, which received $115,000 from Horne’s brother-in-law in California.
The complaint, filed with the Arizona Secretary of State’s Office, also alleges that Horne rewarded the chairwoman of the campaign group with a high-paying job at the Attorney General’s Office.
