    Judge hears campaign finance case against AG Horne

    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.

PHOENIX (AP) - An aide to Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne says she never had illegal communications with him about an independent campaign backing Horne she ran during his 2010 election bid.

Kathleen Winn's testimony came during the third day of a hearing where she are Horne are trying to fend off civil allegations that they illegally coordinated her efforts to back him with the independent committee she ran.

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.
