ABC15 Investigative Reporter Dave Biscobing caught up with Sen. Steve Smith at the state capitol Thursday.


Smith repeatedly told ABC15 to defer to a statement Babeu made about the report that aired earlier this week. When asked if he was going to distance himself from the Sheriff, he replied "I stand by him."
