Initially, Democrat AG Goddard was investigating, but when it was discovered that he had campaigned for Manross, he was forced to turn the investigation over to the Tucson City Attorney. This wouldn't be the first time Goddard tried to "investigate" a friend in order to get them off the hook. Democrats Goddard has investigated in the past seem to skate. Whereas there is a long list of Republicans Goddard has investigated who have been zealously prosecuted, sometimes to the point of devastating their careers, even when Goddard wasn't able to make any charges stick.
