Tom Horne's Alleged Crimes Documented by Attorney Tom Ryan and His Client Sarah Beattie

Thumbnail image for FeatheredBastard_RESIZE_VF.jpg

Chandler attorney Tom Ryan has dropped his daisy cutter on Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne's office, and there ain't much left standing.

Today, Ryan submitted to the Arizona Secretary of State's Office a 15-page sworn affidavit from his client, ex-AG staffer Sarah Beattie, describing extensive political work and campaign fundraising being done on state time by AG employees and by the Attorney General himself.

Running his campaign from his state office? Guilty as charged.

In her affidavit, Beattie, 26, tells how she did campaign work on state time under the direction first of AG Outreach Director Kathleen Winn, then Horne himself, once Horne, afraid she would jump to another campaign, upped her salary from $32,000 to $45,000 per year.

Read Sarah Beattie's sworn affidavit, detailing how Horne turned the AG's office into his campaign headquarters.

She attests to watching Horne himself make "a substantial amount of solicitation calls" from inside his Executive Office, to using a campaign fundraising file marked "Border Patrol" from Horne's office to make fundraising calls, to herself and others creating campaign documents on state time, and trading e-mails that were campaign related.

Examine the extensive exhibits to Sarah Beattie's sworn affidavit.

In addition, Beattie alleges a conspiracy by Horne and other AG staffers to keep all of this campaign work during office time a secret.

Tom Horne and his office hasn't been known for having high ethics. He currently has an attorney working for him by the name of Kenneth Love who threatened his ex male roommate with a shovel because he didn't get his desired rent. His daughter also was caught drinking underage. Guess how much they paid in fines? Zero. When you're a part of the system you get a free pass. http://kennethloveaz.net

A lot of hulabalu about nothing....

The toothless Hatch Act does nothing to stop this type of action...an action that, unfortunately, goes on in every political forum.

if a guy is not only going to cheat on his wife, but hire his mistress at an incredible salary (a kept woman, kept around by our tax dollars)................why on earth would we assume he would display ethics or morals regarding his job or ways to keep his job? can anybody please tell me one time when he did display ethics? ......well besides the ethics that got him banned from the SEC, got him investigated by the FBI and all the other ethics we know him for.................i am looking for an example of "good" ethics

Wonder if Montepoodle is going to cover this one up for Horne as well.

The simple fact that HorniBoi hired Beattie when her main occupation for years had been political fundraising is proof by it self that HorniBoi's office is really his campaign headquarters....  And THAT is illegal!  


On the "list of 17 accomplishments", why didn't HornieBoi mention that he never has to deal with the SEC due to him having a lifetime ban?


Why does AZ keep electing such scum?  And I notice the news stations in town are treating this as a "small bump in the road" for HorniBoi's campaign!

HorniBoi's political career will be pushing up daisies once Tom Ryan hammers in the final nail in the coffin.

Then HorniBoi will very likely fall from grace the way twice-disgraced, corrupt, narcissistic and mentally sick Pearce did, the way notorious woman-beater Scott Bundgaard did, and the way Candy Andy and the Miscreants did....

Go get some popcorn, a refreshment, and go to the bathroom now. This is getting good.

@NoOneLikesU  Not just Hatch Act, there's mini-Hatch Act, prohibition on using state resources for political gain, destroying records, cover up, intimidating witnesses, obstructing justice, acting under color of law, etc. This shit is illegal. The "everyone does it" defense didnt work in Watergate, wont work here.

@danzigsdaddy  

None of those here in Arizona that are suppose to represent the law and the justice systems here have any good ethic's from what I can tell, especially when it comes to the AG's or County Attorneys office, let alone the politicians here.

Montgomery, and his Child Molesting Border Date Chris Simcox will both be advising on how to cover this up, should only take them a "Minute"?!.

@Cozz  but of course......................you didnt really doubt for a second that it would be swept aside and forgotten did you? god forbid Montgomery do his actual job

@WhoKnows Maybe the news station treatment is why Arizona keeps electing such scum?  I don't get it either.  Why do people think Horne got a lifetime ban from the SEC? For having "lunch" with his mistress at her apartment?

@MaskedMagician1967 ,

If this were any other state but Arizona and it was populated by anything other than brain dead lemmings, I would agree whole heartedly with you, but this is, and they are so.....................................................?

@royalphoenix @WhoKnows  Not if they go by clean elections funds....  Notice the GOP clown like HorniBoi seem to like the private dollars....

So maybe, just maybe, the people of this ass-backwards state will develop a pair of brain cells and not vote this sad sack of shit back into office Shadeaux.

But I have better odds of winning the lottery than seeing an ethical leader elected into office.

@WhoKnows @MaskedMagician1967 now my doctor doesn't recommend dispensaries weed as it is contaminated by high levels of pesticides...more than weed smuggled in from mexico has!

And dumbshits like MontyPug and HorniBoi are trying to overturn the will of the people on MMJ WK.....

Never again will I support pols like MontyPug.

@MaskedMagician1967  And it should have happened many years ago!  Recall that AZ passed MMJ THREE times before it was finally implemented....

Florida and Minnesota just legalized medical marijuana. And Arkansas just got its same sex marriage ban tossed WK.

I suspect the Controlled Substances Act of 1970 will eventually remove marijuana from its schedules.
