Arpaio campaign fined for illegal mailers targeting Romley - East Valley Tribune - Arizona Local News

Arpaio campaign fined for illegal mailers targeting Romley - East Valley Tribune - Arizona Local News

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio's 2012 re-election campaign committee will be fined for sending out mailers deemed illegal by the county election department's finance committee because they sought the defeat of Interim Maricopa County Rick Romley.

The order also says the committee does not qualify as an independent expenditure group under state law because Arpaio has expressly been authorized to raise and spend money on behalf of Montgomery's campaign. Nor did the committee, the Re-Elect Joe Arpaio 2012 Committee, receive written certification to be a campaign committee from the Arizona Secretary of State as Arpaio publicly campaigned for office during a non-election year for his job.
