Tom Horne files formal response; denies election law violations

Posted: Updated:
PHOENIX (AP) -

Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne says a former employee who alleges he's used his office staff to do work on his re-election campaign has a history of making false claims against her employers.

Horne says in response to Sarah Beattie's complaint that the 26-year-old also failed to disclose relevant information on her job application that would have prevented her from being hired.

Beattie claims the Republican attorney general violated state election laws by directing his executive staff to work on his campaign while on state time.

The complaint was filed with the Arizona Secretary of State and Citizens Clean Elections Commission.

Horne has publicly denied the allegations and filed a formal response Monday.

The agencies now will determine whether to launch formal investigations.
