PHOENIX (AP) - The Arizona Attorney General's Office redacted embarrassing information in a release of hundreds of documents from an internal probe over suspected media leaks.
The Arizona Capitol Times reports (http://bit.ly/QwRnaY) that censored material included rumors of sexual affairs between Attorney General Tom Horne and a subordinate, questions about a key ally's conduct at work and disparaging comments about the ally, who is entangled with him in alleged campaign finance violations.
Horne's office in August released investigator Margaret Hinchey's case file into the suspected leaks. The file included memos outlining Hinchey's interviews with eight Attorney General's Office employees.
But when the Maricopa County Attorney's Office released documents from a joint investigation with the FBI into alleged campaign violations by Horne and ally Kathleen Winn, the file included the memos in their entirety.
