I thought that Buz Mills was seriously mis-advised by his political handlers when he floated his “Elect a Real Man” campaign piece. It seemed so politically tone deaf as to be laughable. Well, at least it gave the Data Porters a chuckle.
It didn’t much amuse our Governor, however.
Commenting on the Mills campaign brag, “Blessed with wealth, Mr. Mills has largely self-financed his Campaign,” that occurs in his Clean Elections amicus brief, the governor snaps back with:
What is missing from his brief is the questionable nature in which Mr. Mills made his millions.
After sending his partner on vacation while he negotiated the sale of their company, Buz Mills was found guilty of defrauding his partner and ordered to pay out $4.8 million. Mills then challenged the decision and they settled it out of court. While blessed with wealth, Buz Mills has not blessed anyone in Arizona with a real explanation of his fraud conviction.
