The story (links to the actual legal documents can be found in Sonoran Alliance) shows that Mills was found guilty of defrauding his partner and ordered to pay out $4.8 million. Mills then challenged the decision and they settled it out of court. Soon after, Mills skipped town and set up shop in Arizona.
Mills, who has also been in hot water for his lack of support for employer sanctions, is now calling it a "friendly disagreement," which seems to fall very short in explaining an adjudicated case of fraud. Some of the comments conjure images of former Governor Fife Symington, whose company, ironically, is connected with Mills' campaign.
It looks like Buz Mills has some real explaining to do.
