On Lou Magazzu’s NACo website, he had this posted, and has now removed it.
I have served on the Community and Economic Development Steering Committee and the Deferred Compensation Advisory Committee of NACo. I have also served on President Don Stapley‘s Task Force on Governance. I also worked very closely with NACo staff on HR 811, introduced last year by a Congressman from New Jersey, although well intended, such legislation would have established unreasonable, unworkable and counter productive federal mandates in the election process. Working together we made sure that the concerns of the counties regarding implementation of that legislation were properly considered.
It is no wonder he removed it, considering Don Stapley’s trouble with the law the past month.
Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio said this new investigation began as a result of information uncovered by his deputies earlier this year.
The 93 felony allegations are for fraudulent schemes involving his mortgage and loan businesses, campaign account fraud, tax return fraud and campaign fraud. The campaign fraud alleges Stapley used campaign funds to pay personal bills and put money in personal accounts.
Mile Jackson keeps claiming there was nothing illegal in Lou’s handling of campaign finances to give himself a personal loan from the Democratic treasury. Apparently we are not the only people that consider Lou’s actions questionable.
Did Lou learn his financing techniques from Don Stapley? You can be assured we will keep you updated on this story!
