Shedding light on who paid for two recent “dark-money” campaign mailers will be central to a defamation lawsuit that lawyers for mayoral candidate Mary Beth Hrin filed this week.

At a press conference Thursday afternoon, Aug. 3, local attorney Chris Jensen reported that his office had filed a defamation lawsuit in Yavapai County Superior Court earlier that day against the organization that sent out the mailers attacking Hrin.

At the same time, Jensen’s office also filed a motion for a temporary restraining order and preliminary injunction to prevent “further false statements” about Hrin.
