PHOENIX (AP) - Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery is accusing Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne of campaign finance violations.
 
Montgomery alleges Horne illegally coordinated his 2010 election campaign with a separate group supposedly operating independently.
 
Horne and a political ally deny doing that but Montgomery says it's a violation of state law and that he'll demand that hundreds of thousands of dollars of contributions that exceed state limits be returned.
 
Montgomery says a large civil fine also could be imposed and that the individuals involved could be held liable
 
Montgomery had said initially that individuals couldn't be held liable and that a fine couldn't be imposed if the contributions are returned to contributors.
His office later issued a clarification.

Horne defeated Democrat Felecia Rotellini in November 2010 to become the state's attorney general.
