Joe Higgins Says He's Not Behind Arizonans for a Brighter Future

Since our story on Arizonans for a Brighter Future’s bogus claims broke yesterday, we’ve heard from a variety of people with theories as to who might be behind the mysterious non-profit organization, whose backers fear the consequences of allowing their identities to become public.

We've got a few weeks before we get any information back from Delaware, where the group incorporated for some unknown reason, so we thought we might as well ask around and see if anyone wants to ’fess up about being involved.

Several folks have suggested that Joe Higgins, a radio talk-show host and columnist for Inside Tucson Business (which, like the Weekly, is published by Wick Communications), might have a hand in it.

A few weeks back, when we were first looking into Arizonans for a Brighter Future, we asked Higgins if he knew who was behind the organization.

“I don’t know,” said Higgins. “I’d love to find out.”
