APNewsBreak: Fiesta Bowl wants campaign cash back
Brewer campaign spokesman Doug Cole said the Fiesta Bowl’s repayment request was out of line. The bowl is seeking $560 contributed in 2009.
“They’re trying to make their problems someone else’s problems,” he said.
The Fiesta Bowl also was preparing to send bills to lawmakers who accepted free trips and football game tickets. Arizona legislators can accept gifts of travel from lobbyists and their employers, and, in limited circumstances, tickets to entertainment events. They must report trips as gifts.
Brewer said earlier Tuesday that state lawmakers should clarify state laws governing gifts to public officials in light of the Fiesta Bowl scandal, but added there are legitimate grounds for officials to accept gifts of travel and token items of appreciation.
Sponsored travel is appropriate when officials are representing the state and “sometimes bringing business back,” Brewer said.
