The Clean Elections investigation into State Attorney General Tom Horne’s alleged campaign finance law violations in his bid for re-election can continue.  
The Maricopa County Superior Court is denying Horne’s motion for an injunction against the Arizona Citizens Clean Elections Commission, rejecting Horne’s

argument that the commission had no authority over him because he was not running with public funds.  Clean Elections Executive Director Tom Collins says this is a victory for voters and Horne would only say that he is talking to his lawyers about what to do next.  Barring any injunction on appeal, if the Commission finds that Horne had a former top staffer and other employees doing work for his re-election campaign on state time, it could impose a range of penalties, including removal from office.
