Tom Horne's Chenal-Gate Fender-Bender Hearing Pushed to December 17

Alas, the course of elderly lust never did run true, and Horne had some problems with the security code for the gated resident parking. In backing up, he hit a parked, white Range Rover belonging to Goodyear resident Kevin Montano.

Apparently the damage was minor, as Montano didn't even know his car had been hit until FBI agents called him later to set up an interview.

Sounds pretty straightforward. Both Chenal and Horne have admitted that the Passat hit the Range Rover. They just claim that they didn't realize there had been damage done to other vehicle.

Which, admittedly, is kinda tough when you don't get out of your car.

So why has Horne pleaded guilty? Search me. You would think he'd want to get this comedy over with as soon as possible.

Kemerer's excuse for the additional delay is scribbled on a court continuance form.

"Discovery has been extensive," reads the explanation. "Additional time is needed to evaluate the evidence and determine if further investigation is warranted."

Who knew gathering info on a fender bender witnessed and documented at length by two FBI agents would be so tough?

As to why the FBI was dogging Horne, well, that's because they were looking into a possible campaign finance violation by Horne, as well as suspected fraud, witness-tampering, and obstruction of justice.

See, there was so much more to this investigation than a mouthful of falafel.

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.

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.

Lemons,

 

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?

<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.
