Horizon Roundup: Dark money, school vouchers and Grijalva accusations
Dec. 1, 2017
Former state Attorney General Terry Goddard is spearheading a movement to remove dark money from Arizona politics. The initiative Goddard is pushing for would require political donors who donate more than $2,500 to publicly disclose the donation.
Arizona’s school voucher program was put on hold when opponents of the law delivered a petition with more than 100,000 signatures requesting that the state stop the voucher program. Arizona courts will decide this month if they will allow proponents of the vouchers to challenge the petition in court.
A report from the Washington Times claims that Rep. Raul Grijalva (D-Ariz.) used nearly $50,000 of his office’s budget to settle claims made by a former aide against the congressman. Grijalva refutes the allegations that he created a hostile work environment, and that he would come to work under the influence of alcohol.
