As allegations against Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne continue to mount, one Arizona senator has called for his resignation.
Arizona Sen. Steve Gallardo released the following statement on Monday. It has not been altered in any way.
“The FBI and the Maricopa County Attorney have both concluded that Attorney General Horne intentionally broke state election laws while he was an elected state officer and while he was running for his current office,” said Sen. Gallardo.
“It is disgusting that our state’s top law enforcement official considered himself above the laws he sought to enforce. Therefore, I call on Attorney General Horne to immediately resign and return his fraudulently-gained office to the citizens of Arizona.
“Not only should Horne resign, he should be held personally liable for any fines or penalties and should be fully prosecuted if found guilty of his apparent hit-and-run incident.”
