Former Arizona Attorney General Grant Woods denied an accusation Wednesday that he is too biased to oversee the investigation into a Maricopa County official under indictment for human smuggling.

Assessor Paul Petersen’s lawyer Kory Langhofer said in an email to KTAR News 92.3 FM that Woods commenting “great work” on a tweet about the indictment shows he is unfit to supervise county attorney’s investigation, which was announced Tuesday.

Langhofer also pointed out that Woods liked a tweet in which someone said Petersen should “learn to enjoy prison.”

But Woods told KTAR News’ Bruce St. James & Pamela Hughes Show he stands by his Twitter activity.

“What Petersen’s charged with is really, really, very, very disturbing,” Woods said. “… I stand by law enforcement on a job well done in bringing this to light.”

Langhofer said Woods deleted the tweet about Petersen’s indictment, but it was visible on Woods’ page Wednesday.
