From the Phoenix New Times:
Andrew Thomas, former Maricopa County Attorney, was disbarred today by the three-member disciplinary panel of the Arizona State Supreme Court.
So was his former deputy, Lisa Aubuchon.
Former deputy county attorney Rachel Alexander’s law license was suspended for six months and one day.
The disciplinary panel dismissed a few charges, but found “clear and convincing evidence” that Thomas and Aubuchon had abused their prosecutorial powers while trying to prosecute County Supervisors Mary Rose Wilcox and Don Stapley, Judge Gary Donahoe and others. The panel found that Thomas and Aubuchon launched unethical attacks on their political enemies.
For those who don’t follow Arizona politics, Andy Thomas basically acted as Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s right-hand-man. I’m fucking ecstatic to see this jackass and his lackey Aubuchon get disbarred.
