Unaware he was being watched by the FBI, Attorney General Tom Horne damaged a parked car and left the scene, authorities said, according to the Arizona Daily Star.
“Apparently at the time, I didn’t think it was damaged,” Horne told the Daily Star. “I was told later it was damaged. I was happy to pay if there was any damage.”
But more may have been involved, according to Monday’s release of investigation records into Horne’s suspicious fundraising for his election campaign.
The Daily Star reports that Horne was driving a car with Carmen Chenal, a disbarred attorney, when he backed into a Range Rover, drove away and then parked in a parking garage
It’s illegal to leave the scene of a crash without reporting it to authorities. Police are investigating.
