Arizona: seeking an investigation of FAIR

AP reports: Some Tucson immigrant-advocacy groups want the Arizona Attorney General's Office to prosecute a national immigration reform group, claiming it engaged in a misleading campaign that helped persuade voters to approve Proposition 200 last year.

At issue is whether the Federation for American Immigration Reform should have registered as a political committee and filed finance reports during last year's campaign to pass Prop 200, an initiative to keep people who are living in the country illegally from receiving public assistance.

FAIR largely funded efforts to gather the signatures needed to put the measure on last November's ballot. -- Arizona Daily Sun-
