She's always stood by Arizona's Attorney General, but now Tom Horne's top aide is resigning.
Amy Rezzonico has been by Horne's side for a decade. But last year, she asked prosecutors for immunity if she testified against her boss.
And now she admits that all of the controversy played a role in her decision to leave.
Rezzonico was questioned by FBI agents regarding two different investigations of Horne.
One for illegal campaign activity, and the other for a hit and run accident committed by Horne while he was on a romantic rendezvous with his mistress Carmen Chenal.
Documents also show that Rezonnico hired a criminal attorney named Michael Black, and asked investigators for immunity if she provided them with information.
In a excerpt from her FBI Interview, Rezonnico said: "On Monday morning, I asked him 'what's happened now?' and that's when he told me about the hit and run and he looked like a ghost."
The ABC15 Investigators spoke with Rezzonico on the phone Monday night.
She told us that she will work at the AG's office through February before joining a political consulting firm. A job she calls a better opportunity.
