Claim “absent even one kernel of credibility or integrity,” says governor’s spokesman

On Nov. 2, former state Rep. Don Shooter threatened the Governor’s Office with subpoenas seeking information on state technology contracts that he found questionable.

Five days later, he was publicly accused of sexual harassment, and soon was stripped of his top position on the House Appropriations Committee and his authority to issue such subpoenas.

Now, he is out of office — expelled by his colleagues after an investigation into a pattern of workplace sexual harassment.

As he exited, Shooter said alleged rivals were politically motivated to see him gone because of what he claims were “suspicious” state contracts awarded out of favoritism to companies that have ties to Gov. Doug Ducey or other state officials.
