Terry Goddard Responds to Clean Elections Complaint

(Phoenix, Ariz. – February 25, 2005) My campaign disclosures were complete, highly detailed and in compliance with the Clean Elections law. 

Of course, this complaint will be properly investigated, and I have recused myself and this office from any involvement with that process.     

I don't know why a complaint like this would be filed after more than two years except to attempt to divert attention from the Clean Elections investigations of complaints relating to the 2004 election.
