Board of Supervisors, attorney hide DOJ investigation

There is a good article in the Sonoran News on how the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors hid the fact they are being investigated by the Department of Justice. I don't ever think I've come across a political entity full of as many scandals as this board. The Maricopa County Attorney's Office is concerned that the board has created a shadow county attorney's office in order to hide things like that.

An excerpt:

According to Maricopa County Attorney Andrew Thomas, the county’s new unlawfully created litigation department, formed after Stapley was indicted, was directed to file a pleading for sanctions against the prosecutor in the Stapley case because, according to Thomas, “That prosecutor was seeking a copy of a deposition of Conley Wolfswinkle, a convicted felon who is both a business associate of Mr. Stapley and a former client of Mr. Irvine.”
