Arizona Attorney General Tom “Sanctity Of Marriage” Horne Exposed As Adulterer

Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne, one of the state’s most vocal opponents of same-sex partner rights, has been exposed (by the FBI, no less) as an adulterer.

Tom Horne caused more than $1,000 worth of damage when he clipped another car in a parking garage and just drove off, in order, according to FBI agents, to conceal an affair he was having with his passenger. Phoenix police records obtained Tuesday include detailed witness accounts by FBI agents who were following Horne, Arizona’s attorney general, on March 27 as part of a campaign finance investigation. They said they watched him back his borrowed vehicle into a white Range Rover in the parking garage of a Phoenix residential complex. FBI agents said that after the fender-bender, Horne and the woman, since identified as Carmen Chenal, who works for Horne, walked off and entered the residential area of the complex where Chenal lives.

In August, Horne filed a lawsuit with the U.S. Supreme Court, demanding that Arizona be allowed to repeal domestic partners insurance for state employees. In his suit, Horne claimed that rescinding benefits for gay employees would be good for Arizona tourism because doing so “furthers the State’s interest in promoting marriage.” In addition to the investigation into Horne’s campaign finances, there are charges that the employee he’s been adulterously fucking was hired despite having no qualifications for the job.
