Suit alleges the commission used funds to promote itself.
The Arizona Republic reports that the group No Taxpayer Money for Politicians has brought a lawsuit against the Citizens Clean Elections Commission in Arizona.
Former state Sen. Jonathan Paton is quoted in the article as saying, “They’re using this [public money] for electioneering purposes and not for educating voters.”
The commission’s Executive Director Todd Lang called the suit a “wrong-headed” attempt to eliminate the agency’s education fund.
