FIRST WATCH: New Ad Attacking Attorney General Tom Horne's Integrity, Urges Resignation (FOLLOWING MONEY IN ARIZONA'S POLITICS)

As reported earlier on Arizona's Politics, the Arizona Public Integrity Alliance is running a new ad attacking the integrity and ethics of Attorney General Tom Horne, and urging him to resign.

While the ad does not address any of the recent developments regarding the (currently-held) illegal coordination in 2010 between Horne and an independent expenditure committee, nor the complaint filed by an ex-AG staffer alleging widespread campaigning out of the AG's offices, it certainly capitalizes on them and reaches back to the earlier issues that the APIA had attacked on.

Horne had filed a complaint against the APIA with the Secretary of State's Office, which turned it down.

Here is the ad:

APIA framed this ad as an issue ad, and has not disclosed how much it has spent on the ad, nor the contributors to the 501(c)(4).
