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.

Is Horne really gong to trial? I cannot wait until the prosecutor asks him what he was doing in that garage, and how many times he has driven there in the past. "Did you see the FBI tailing you?" Some people have more ego than sense.

Does Toon Town know their idiot is missing?


Hopefully the new US AG will actually go after Tom "Banned for Life by the SEC" Horne once Eric Holder leaves the Justice Department. I have been hearing rumors the new AG will be the current governor of MA.


If that happens, we may be able to get a fresh criminal investigation into the MCSO shurf and his Mt. Everest of criminal corruption and abuse of power. 


LOL. What a mother fucker wabbit hunting moron that horne is.




p2 "So why has Horne pleaded guilty? Search me. "

p1  "Horne has already pleaded not-guilty to the fender-bender"


So which one is it or did he change his plea at some point?


Another dipshit the dumb fucking Maricopa County voters elected.

<Though Jackson was never charged in that case, a House ethics panel investigation into his actions was ultimately eclipsed by a federal criminal probe based in Washington, D.C., into alleged misuse of campaign dollars.>

 @marcy I saw that too when I first read the article.  I've given up trying to point out corrections which could be made to the grammar and spelling utilized in the Phoenix New Times articles in an attempt to improve "my paper."  The editor's only occasionally come back to an article to make the corrections and still one does not get the credit and thanks for doing their job for them.  I think that reference on page 2 should be "So why hasn't Horne pleaded guilty?"


 @Cozz Actually it was a statewide contest.  Other than that your comment still fits.



 Yes, sorry about that, I'm just used to how stupid Maricopa County voters are, I forget its a statewide problem as well.
