Tom Horne Ripped in New Ad from AZPIA Calling for His Resignation

Spare the rod, spoil the Horne-dog.

Arizona Public Integrity Alliance, the conservative group Horne unsuccessfully SLAPP-sued for defamation, is giving Attorney General Tom Horne the first of many birchings he'll no doubt be receiving this year, in this new ad recounting his vehicular hit and run back in 2012, with his presumed mistress and then employee Carmen Chenal in the car.

AZPIA President Tyler Montague tells me that the commercial, which encourages viewers to call Horne's office and demand his resignation, begins a statewide ad run today.
