The Nation

December 04, 1987

The man who loaned Arizona Gov. Evan Mecham's campaign $350,000 appeared before the state grand jury, which is investigating the unreported loan as well as an alleged death threat against a witness, former Mecham aide Donna Carlson. After his grand jury appearance, developer Barry Wolfson of Tempe told reporters that he expected to get payment of the final $150,000 he is owed on the loan by the end of the day. Willard Mecham, the governor's brother and 1986 campaign treasurer, also appeared before the grand jury, for the second straight day. The grand jury is investigating whether the Republican governor, who also faces a recall drive, should be indicted for failing to report the loan until it was disclosed in news reports this fall.
