A former Phoenix lobbyist has been indicted for allegedly using his firm's money to reimburse staff after directing them to make specific political campaign contributions.
The Arizona Attorney General's Office announced Thursday that Gary Husk and his company have been accused of one count of conspiracy to make prohibited political contributions and seven counts of prohibited contributions.
Prosecutors say the contributions went to high-profile politicians with whom Husk allegedly sought access and influence, including Gov. Jan Brewer.
They say there's no indication any of the politicians knew they received the illegal contributions from 2007 to 2010.
Husk is a former state and federal prosecutor. He's been served with a summons to appear Monday in Maricopa County Superior Court.
Husk reportedly could lose his law license if convicted in the case.
