Evan Wyloge of Arizona Center for Investigative Reporting brings us this brief from Attorney General Mark Brnovich's press conference this morning:

Susan Bitter Smith, the chairwoman of the Arizona Corporation Commission broke the state’s conflict of interest laws by continuing to work as a lobbyist for companies the commission regulates, an Attorney General’s investigation has found.

The state’s top law enforcement office filed today a special action with the Arizona Supreme Court to have Bitter Smith removed from office.

Arizona law specifically addresses the Corporation Commission, barring them from working for, or having a financial interest in the companies the commission regulates.

“We believe she is ineligible to hold this office,” Attorney General Mark Brnovich said at a press conference Monday.

The motion asks for immediate action, but the Supreme Court could send it to superior court for review.
