Arizona’s Attorney General Tom Horne has faced criticism from many sides for a number of months. He’s faced multiple investigations for alleged campaign finance violations. His personal life has also been fodder for media and even the FBI. But Horne is still in office and running for reelection.

In Utah, the story of the attorney general’s office is much stranger. Tuesday, two recent attorneys general,  Mark Shurtleff and John Swallow, were taken into custody.

For more details, we spoke with Dennis Romboy, reporter for the Deseret News in Salt Lake City.
