AG Horne given week to respond to latest complaint

PHOENIX (AP) - Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne has a week to respond to a new complaint alleging he violated state election laws by directing his executive staff to work on his re-election campaign while on state time.

State election director Christina Estes-Werther sent a letter to Horne on behalf of Secretary of State Ken Bennett Tuesday giving Horne until May 21 to respond.

Former Horne staffer Sarah Beattie's 15-page complaint says she was hired to mainly work on his campaign. She says many of the Republican's attorney general's executive staff also do campaign work on taxpayer time.

Horne acknowledged his staff does some campaign work during work hours but says it is on their own time. He called Beattie's complaint the product of a bitter former employee being used by her attorney.
