Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne was cited last Wednesday for leaving the scene of a hit-and-run accident earlier this year. Two FBI agents who had Horne under surveillance earlier this year saw him hit a parked SUV and then leave the scene of the collision.

In January 2011, Horne declared the Tucson Unified School District MAS (Mexican American Studies) program illegal.

The local Arizona ABC affiliate ABC15 has more details on Horne’s most recent scandal:

On March 27, 2012 at 12:45 p.m., two FBI agents had Horne under surveillance.

The federal investigators were tailing Horne in the course of their investigation into allegations of campaign finance violations .

The agents watched Horne and his employee, Carmen Chenal, drive to 202 West Roosevelt, where Chenal has an apartment. They then saw Horne back into a vehicle, a white Range Rover, then drive off without leaving a note.

Horne claimed he didn’t know he hit another car.

Sources tell ABC15 the woman in question is his mistress.
