Horne To Defend Himself Against Latest Accusations

Published: Wednesday, May 21, 2014 - 9:45am

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

A Horne spokeswoman says he will respond to the complaint filed with the Secretary of State and Arizona Citizens Clean Election Commission by a June 2 deadline.

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, Tom Ryan, sent Horne a letter saying he is personally responsible for retaining records because he no longer has an attorney.

Horne's previous lawyer Dennis Wilenchik withdrew as counsel on Monday.
