Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne
Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne turned over some of the investigation into the Fiesta Bowl corruption fiasco to the Maricopa County Attorney's Office citing a conflict of interest that exists because many of the people being investigated are "clients" of the AG's office because they're elected officials.

However, he's hanging onto the majority of the investigation -- the part that doesn't involve elected officials -- even though some of those being investigated contributed to Horne's campaign when he was running for attorney general. Not to mention, two high-powered Republican Arizona politicos who could help Horne should he seek higher office -- which isn't out of the realm of possibility.

"For Attorney General Horne to claim that prominent lobbyists Chuck Coughlin and Gary Husk are just names on a long list of contributors to his campaign strains believability," Democratic Party Chairman Andrei Cherny said yesterday. "They are two of the most powerful men in state government and in Republican party politics."

We want to know what you think: should Horne turn the entire investigation over to another agency?

In this paper, Horne is doomed no matter what he does. First liberals wanted him to excuse himself from investigation because of some alledged conflict of interest. When he turned over the investigation to MC AG he continues to be criticized.

It'sbest to take it away from him because it doesn't involve kids or the school system, so he won't know what to do with it anyways. Horne is afraid of his own shadow. He can't walk and chew gum at the same time. He's afraid he is going to lose votes, but that is a given for the next election anyways. He was elected to keep Thomas out of politics. If more dems voted Rotellini probably would have won.

Coughlin is involved in child sex-tours to the Phillipines and other locales (including native peoples in Alaska and all over the world) for his "special" friends.

Gary Husk has "friends" all over the valley.....including Tempe Police Chief, Tom Ryff and his lap dog Charles Cobbs. Did I mention too that Ryff is friends with Hendershott? They say you can tell a lot about a person by the "friends" they surround themself with.
