PHOENIX (AP) - A bill signed into law by Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer could help revive a campaign finance case against Attorney General Tom Horne.
An election overhaul bill Brewer signed Wednesday contains a provision allowing the secretary of state to send campaign finance complaints against the attorney general to the county attorney in the jurisdiction where the violation allegedly occurred.
Horne and aide Kathleen Winn have been accused of illegally coordinating outside campaign spending for Horne during his 2010 campaign. Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery filed a civil action in October against him and Winn in October.
A judge blocked the case last month, saying Secretary of State Ken Bennett should have sent the case to Horne for review. Bennett spokesman Matt Roberts says he plans on following the judge's order.
