Legislator Who Resigned Amid Probe To Run For Yavapai County Office


A former Arizona state legislator who resigned last March amid an ethics investigation of 1983 sex charges and his comments on race and immigration is running for office again.

David Stringer on Friday night announced his candidacy for Yavapai County attorney. That office is now held by a fellow Republican whom he accused of wasting tax dollars by locking up low-level offenders.

Stringer was the subject of two ethics complaints following newspaper reports that he was charged with sex crimes more than three decades ago. The charges were later expunged.

Yavapai County Attorney Sheila Polk tells The Associated Press that Stringer is a “terribly flawed candidate" and that she's running for re-election on a strong record of accomplishments.
