Here’s an update on an Arizona case involving the Sheriff’s Command Association.
Joel Fox, a captain with the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office, argued during a Feb. 4 administrative hearing that the fine was improperly levied against him. Fox, who created the Sheriff’s Command Association and managed its money, said he was not given a chance to comply with elections laws prior to being sanctioned.
“There should be an opportunity for compliance before a fine is levied,” he said in the hearing. “The statute is clearly constructed that way.”
