Trial Underway In Case Accusing Ex-Arizona Utility Regulator And Others Of Bribery

A trial got underway Wednesday involving a former member of the Arizona Corporation Commission who’s been accused of bribery and fraud.

Prosecutors allege the owner of a water company paid money to the now-former wife of a lobbyist, who then gave the money to the wife of the utility regulator in exchange for the commissioner’s votes.

Howard Fischer of Capitol Media Services joined The Show to talk about it.

Mark Brodie is a co-host of The Show, KJZZ’s locally produced news magazine. Since starting at KJZZ in 2002, Brodie has been a host, reporter and producer, including several years covering the Arizona Legislature, based at the Capitol.
