AZ AG Tom Horne wins apology, settlement from shadowy IE

A dishonest independent expenditure (IE) group specializing in attack ads against Republicans has publicly apologized to Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne as part of his defamation lawsuit against the shadowy and disreputable clique.

The group, which admitted to falsifying information about Horne, actually has the audacity to call itself “Arizona Public integrity Alliance.”

The Center for Responsive Politics notes the lacking-in-integrity-alliance does not disclose its donors. They are obviously so proud of their underhanded tactics, they conceal their identities.

The group ran numerous television attack ads earlier this month claiming Horne was under investigation by the FBI, although that was untrue. The apology is part of the settlement agreement in the lawsuit Attorney General Horne brought against the group.

Rather than believe those with nefarious intent, scroll though the Attorney General’s website and see what Tom Horne and his Assistant Attorneys General have been doing on behalf of the citizens of the state of Arizona. This page explains the duties and numerous divisions of the largest law office in the state. Check out the many opinions (2011, 2012, 2013) and media releases for a more complete picture of what this fine Republican Attorney General has accomplished so far  during his first term.

    Remember when Club for Growth flooded the nightly TV programming with vicious ads against Wil Cardon? Conservative Cardon’s only misstep was that he had the raw nerve to run against establishment RINO Jeff Flake and he was brutalized for his trouble.

    Congressman Trent Franks campaigned for Cardon and even recorded an ad rebuking the lies being told by Club for Growth. These secret groups think they can get away with massive deception. I commend Tom Horne for challenging the IE. Groups that conceal the identity of their backers should be disallowed. Sunlight is the best disinfectant. I hope Horne’s settlement was substantial.

    The GOP state party chair, his political consultant pal, and other “players” including the former Speaker of the AZ House were outed by the state of California for engaging in just this type of “dark money” group. They dumped $11 million to influence the outcome of a California campaign.
    Whether or not we agree with the objective, they went to great lengths to conceal their identities and those of their donors. This tactic stinks no matter who engages in it. Their group “Americans for Responsible Leadership” admitted to “campaign money laundering.”

      The Talking Points Memo link is quite a revealing indictment, showing that they used multiple organizations to conceal their true identities. So clever. So arrogant. So stupid.

    Where’s Nathan Sproul? He’s the missing link. I imagine he must be lurking around here somewhere. Could be the religion thing. He’s an evangelical. The others are LDS.

    OMG, that is just the opposite East Valley. You are either a fool or not equipped to use the Internet to look up what happened. The Libtards wanted the donor list, just like they want Scott Walkers donor list. You are just as bad, passing on bad info into the arena, you have a nasty nasty way about you.

    Seen it All, do you have a problem with Mormon’s. Are you one of the reason we have Obama again? You and the Arizona Republic now joining forces? Again, so-called conservatives eating their own, even on thanksgiving.

    Chairman Graham was fought hard by Phil Mason because the opposition did not want it coming out about Phil Mason and his $8,000.00 garage, or Lynn Breyer calling California to try and indict another Republican, or Phil Mason and the Computers from the GOP or the Printer. Again you all hate so much we will never take back anything because you are too busy trashing a Conservative.

      Considering that I campaigned for, donated to and voted for Mitt Romney, I don’t think I am responsible for the election or reelection of Obama. I even voted for the blithering old RINO McCain in 2008, who appeared to campaign harder for Obama than he did for himself. I am quite adept with the Internet and my level of business proficiency would attest that I am not “a fool.”

      I also voted for Robert Graham for AZ Republican Chairman.

      Phil Mason and an $8000 garage? This guy’s not even on my radar screen.

      The link I added was NOT to the slimy Arizona Republic. It was to TPM which included two letters you must have missed reading. One from Sean Noble and the other from Kirk Adams.

      You might have also missed this news report. It was not in the AZ Repulsive either.
