Joe Kanefield, former Arizona elections director and an attorney at Ballard Spahr, said it is up to the City Clerk and City Attorney of Phoenix to determine whether everything was properly handled regarding more than $70,000 in mayoral candidate Greg Stanton's election war chest. There are concerns about whether the money should be considered an illegal campaign contribution. “These are important, legitimate questions that have to be asked, and that's what the election officials are tasked to determine,” Mr. Kanefield said.
