Tom Horne's Chenal-Gate Fender-Bender Hearing Pushed to December 17
Horne: Everything tastes better with hummus...
Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne's initial court date for his hit-and-run charge today was delayed till December 17 after his attorney Michael Kimerer asked for more time to prepare Horne's defense.
Horne has already pleaded not-guilty to the fender-bender, which took place in an apartment complex parking lot at the residence of his paramour, Assistant Attorney General Carmen Chenal, in March of this year.
General Horne backed into another vehicle but did not get out of his car and leave a note, as is required under Arizona law. Unbeknownst to him, he was being dogged by two FBI agents at the time, who witnessed the accident and took photos of the damaged vehicles.
Earlier, Horne had driven his gold Jag from to meet Chenal at a parking lot at 10th Avenue and Washinton Street. Chenal was in a black VW Passat she had borrowed from another employee of the AG's office.
The couple left in the Passat, with Horne at the wheel, wearing a baseball cap as some sort of disguise. They stopped at the Pita Jungle on Roosevelt Street for lunch to go, then headed over to Chenal's digs next door for their nooner.
