Candidate Wins Child Support Reduction – Then Personally Finances His Campaign

According to this Arizona Daily Star article, a successful businessman-turned-candidate for governor successfully urged the family court to halve his child support obligation – and shortly thereafter committed $100,000 of his own personal funds to his campaign.

The candidate was quoted as saying that the reduced support payment “for one kid for a four-year marriage is pretty darn generous.”

The candidate is also reportedly extremely delinquent in his spousal support obligations to his ex-wife.

The candidate seeks political office that would make him the director of the state of Arizona’s public policies.

If he wins election, will Arizona’s children and ex-spouses face across-the-board reductions in child support and spousal support?
