PHOENIX (AP) - A Democratic campaign group that ran ads against Tom Horne in the 2010 attorney general’s race has disclosed its contributors to the Secretary fo State’s Office, ending a five-year legal battle.

An appeals court said ads bought by the Committee for Justice and Fairness attacking then-candidate Tom Horne were not exempt issue advocacy and campaigns filings were therefore required, a ruling that the state Supreme Court upheld in April.

Earlier this month, the Maricopa County Attorney’s office announced an effort to bring a contempt citation against the group.

The Arizona Capitol Times reports (https://bit.ly/1TrkPyT ) that the Committee for Justice and Fairness disclosed that in 2010 it received about $942,000 from the Democratic Attorneys General Association. It spent about $774,000 of the money on attack ads against Republican Tom Horne during his campaign for attorney general.
