    An FBI agent who investigated allegations that Attorney General Tom Horne broke state campaign finance laws has begun testifying in a civil case that could cost Horne more than a million in fines and donor repayments.
    A prosecutor says evidence will show that Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne was in constant communication with an aide who was running an independent group backing him in the 2010 election, and she passed along his suggestions about campaign ads attacking his Democratic rival to her campaign consultant.

Horne is likely to testify in his own defense later Wednesday

An FBI agent this week testified that a chain of emails and cellphone records show Horne talked to Winn while she worked with a campaign consultant about an ad.

Yavapai County Attorney Sheila Polk determined Horne and Winn did coordinate efforts and ordered him to return nearly $400,000 to donors.
