Investigation finds Phoenix City Councilmember Carlos Garcia likely violated campaign finance laws
Phoenix City Councilmember Carlos Garcia could be in hot water after an investigation revealed that he likely violated campaign finance laws.
He accepted nearly $28,000 from the United Food and Commercial Workers union, but it’s against state law to accept campaign donations from labor unions.
Garcia is running for a second term in Phoenix’s District 8, which encompasses much of south Phoenix, where he’s from. He’s been a champion of the Latino community there for more than a decade, since he worked as an activist fighting against former Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s anti-immigrant efforts.
Jessica Boehm of Axios Phoenix wrote more about it, and she joined The Show to explain what she found.
