PHOENIX - An Arizona administrative law judge considering whether Republican Attorney General Tom Horne illegally coordinated campaign spending with an aide running an independent group during his 2010 election bid is set to release her ruling.
Judge Tammy Eigenheer's ruling is due Monday. Lawyers had expected it last week but the deadline was recalculated.
Yavapai County prosecutors say they produced enough evidence during a February civil hearing to show Horne and aide Kathleen Winn broke campaign-finance law by working together on outside ads targeting Horne's Democratic opponent. They want Horne to repay $400,000 to donors and up to three times that amount in civil fines.
Lawyers for Horne and Winn say there's no evidence they broke campaign finance laws. They also argue that an FBI agent who investigated the case committed perjury.
