McSally’s former deputy campaign manager pleads guilty to stealing campaign funds

A deputy campaign manager to former Sen. Martha McSally pleaded guilty Friday to stealing more than six figures from her campaign, the Justice Department announced.

Anthony Barry, who was a consultant and a deputy campaign manager for the Arizona Republican, is facing up to five years in prison after pleading guilty to taking more than $115,000 from her campaign in 2018 and 2019, according to a release from the Justice Department. His sentencing is slated for July 6.

Barry, 33, “fraudulently” had McSally’s campaign pay him more than his salary, according to the release.
