Tom Horne's Blues: No Settlement in Campaign Finance Case, Hearing Begins February 10, Sister Lends Him $100K

Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne's hopes of settling his campaign finance case have been dashed for now, as Yavapai County Attorney Sheila Polk today filed a notice with the administrative law court, signaling that discussions between the two sides on Thursday did not end in a resolution.

Horne's attorney Michael Kimerer would not comment on the substance of the settlement conference. But he lamented the lack of results.
