    An FBI agent who investigated allegations that Attorney General Tom Horne broke state campaign finance laws has begun testifying in a civil case that could cost Horne more than a million in fines and donor repayments.
    A prosecutor says evidence will show that Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne was in constant communication with an aide who was running an independent group backing him in the 2010 election, and she passed along his suggestions about campaign ads attacking his Democratic rival to her campaign consultant.
