Smiling AG Tom Horne allegedly the subject of an FBI investigation
​The piece
seems to provide possible direction for the sudden departure last week of Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne's chief criminal deputy, Jim Keppel.

Good work by Duda, who obviously had been working on this one for a while.

If the allegations play out, Mr. Horne can kiss his gubernatorial dreams (2014 ain't that far off) goodbye.

Is there ANY agency in this Arizona ethically "intact" to investigate anyone? Let's review;  The Phoenix FBI? I dunno...would that be Special Agent Ryan Seese? Or the other FBI Special cat...Joe Gordwin? (google if you need) Should we call Phoenix DOJ dude Dennis Burke? Opps, he fled to Mexico to be with his assault rifles...Let's call ATF - Shizen! Nein! dat is no goot! Hey let's call Babeau - Ooops, forgot...that's a No Go! Hey, former PPD Chief Jack Harris? Negatory, there good buddy! ...mmm...Horne? oh yes...that's the point of all of this...So ghost busters, who ya gunna call? I guess we have to call Sheriff Joe Arpaio?

The state of Arizona Republican response:

"No matter what you have accused me of, I wasn't there. If I was there and didn't know it, I didn't have anything to do with having done it. If I did know about it, it's only because I was told about it and didn't really have anything to do with it. If I really did do it I only did so because it's what the people want and they have told me many times to do it, even if I didn't want to. Not only that but look at what I has did while I has been doing what I am accused of even though I didn't do it or even know anything about it. As a matter of fact I've been doing the job the feds don't want to do and now you're accusing me of doing something? You do realize that I trained the Hondurans to defend our border from Iraqis? I'm a good Mormon and the church says they agree with everything I do, even when they know it's corrupt and criminal."

ad nauseum......


As I've said before, Arizona only elects the finest criminals available.

Good. This guy needs to be gone now along with his corrupt staff.


Lifetime ban from SEC is only part of it.

Is anyone from Arizona who is familiar with Horne over the last couple decades really surprised?
