Taxpayers Foot Bill for Arizona Democrat Katie Hobbs Racial Discrimination Case

The plaintiff who successfully sued the Arizona Senate for racial and sex discrimination in the workplace, which she says Democrat U.S. Senate nominee Katie Hobbs is responsible for, has finally received her $300,000 award.

On Thursday, the Arizona Department of Administration (ADOA) informed Breitbart News via a public record request that a $300,000 payment was issued to the plaintiff, Talonya Adams, on September 21. A jury awarded $2.75 million in damages to Adams, but state law caps the award at $300,000. What is more, the ADOA informs Breitbart News the total cost of the Senate’s legal fees has reached $458,806, up nearly $40,000 from the $415,000 reported by the Arizona Republic in March. In total, Arizona taxpayers have paid $758,806 between the award and legal fees.
