Just in: Judge clears AG Tom Horne in campaign finance case

The administrative judge ruled against prosecutors and said that they did not have sufficient evident to conclude that Horne broke campaign finance laws by coordinating with an independent expenditure group.

Wait for it:  there is a bill pending in the AZ lege that would make such coordination even easier.  And remember Stephen Colbert's expose of how easy it always was to set up such committees with "ex" campaign staffers?

Morning-after-thought:  the headlines this morning are misleading.  The ruling does not conclude innocence.  And the prosecuters can still pursue the charges and the case could go to court.
