Attorney General statement on Quartzsite

The Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne has released the following statement with regard to the ongoing Quartzsite town hall dispute:

‚ÄúNormally, we do not release the results of an investigation until it has been completed. However, because this is a matter of unusual public interest, we are prepared to say that, based on review of a video of a July 10 meeting, there is reasonable cause to believe that there has been a violation of the Open Meeting Law, inasmuch as the public was excluded. The meeting was held under the misconception that an emergency meeting can be conducted without the public present.‚Ä
