Soros group is accused of violating Arizona election law


PHOENIX (AP) - A campaign finance violation complaint has been filed with the Maricopa County Recorder's Office against a newly formed independent political committee linked to hedge fund tycoon George Soros.

An attorney representing Republican incumbent Bill Montgomery's re-election campaign for Maricopa County Attorney filed a complaint Friday, saying the Arizona Safety & Justice has violated a state election law.

Soros has been spending millions of dollars this year to support Democrats in prosecutor races around the country and all but one of his favored candidates have won.

Phoenix lawyer Brett Johnson says the law requires political committees making independent expenditures to a candidate or office within 60 days of an election to provide 24 hours' notice to opponents about submitted print or television ads.

Montgomery's campaign says it was not notified.

If this state wasn't possibly turning blue this wouldn't even be a thing.

Wait, a group has to inform the opposition 24 hours before airing an ad that they are airing an ad, but only an external group airing that ad within 60 days of an election? How odd.

The local Fox station (that I watch every morning) was discussing the possibility of Texas going blue or at least purple this election.

Quoting motha2daDuchess: If this state wasn't possibly turning blue this wouldn't even be a thing.
