Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne and his surrogates have been doing their darnedest to drag former AG staffer Sarah Beattie through the mud, in an obvious attempt to deflect attention from the mountain of evidence provided by Beattie, showing that Horne has been running his re-election campaign from the AG's Office.
But there's a risk in such ad hominem attacks. First, they do not address the underlying accusation, or the evidence accompanying it. Second, they leave those in your camp open to the same personal scrutiny.
Which is the only reason I'm bothering with a DUI that Horne's legislative liaison Brett Mecum pulled in September 2013, for which he ultimately did 24 hours in Maricopa County Jail.
