FBI report says Arizona official was having affair

PHOENIX (AP) - FBI agents allege Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne left the scene of a minor automobile accident because he was having an affair with a female employee in the car he was driving and didn't want their relationship to be reported.

An FBI report released Tuesday says agents learned during a campaign finance investigation that Horne was having an affair with the woman and that they used her apartment as a rendezvous site.

The parking garage for the apartment complex was the scene of the accident. Horne was cited last week on a misdemeanor charge of leaving the scene of a collision or unattended vehicle.

Horne has declined comment on whether he was having an affair but says he didn't know there was any damage to the parked vehicle.
