The Arizona Republic is reporting that Wil Cardon is being sued by 6 of his siblings. The lawsuit claims that Wil has spent nearly $10 million dollars of the family trust for his personal use and they want it to stop. The siblings are asking for a restraining order to stop him from being able to make any financial transactions in the future. It is being reported that he spent $6.3 million Cardon spent on his U.S. Senate race in 2012 that he lost and $3.2 million transferred last month, presumably to buy a new home in Mesa.
Wil Cardon “has misused Cardon family assets to afford himself an excessive and lavish lifestyle,” the complaint states.
“It’s your typical wealthy heirs decide they need more money, so let’s sue,” campaign manager Chris Baker said.
There is no evidence in the court filing that Wil Cardon directed the money to his current campaign for secretary of state, where he is one of three Republicans seeking the party’s nomination. Campaign-finance reports show that Cardon had lent his campaign $133,500 as of May 31, the most recent date for which reports are available.
