“Arizona agencies feud over policing ‘dark money’ groups; voters could be the losers”

AZ Central:

As next year’s statewide elections get closer, several Arizona agencies are locked in a bitter feud to determine who has the power to police so-called “dark money” groups that spend millions to influence races.

The dispute is playing out in complicated legal tit-for-tats, but the heart of the fight is simple: Should the office of Secretary of State Michele Reagan or the Arizona Citizens Clean Elections Commission, a voter-created body, play the role of enforcer? And is there room for two policemen?

It’s unclear how the dispute will get resolved. Ultimately, courts may have to decide.
