The Citizens Clean Elections Commission is poised to approve a settlement with Horne. The deal requires the attorney general to pay a $10,000 fine for using state resources for his failed re-election bid. That fine must be paid by Nov. 28 and the money cannot come from campaign accounts.

Horne told The Associated Press that he cannot comment until the commission formally accepts the agreement at its Thursday meeting.

If all parties sign off the deal, it is not appealable.

Horne lost a chance for a second term to Republican Attorney General-elect Mark Brnovich in the August primary.
