Biden’s pick for Arizona’s US Attorney confirmed by Senate | TheHill

“Gary Restaino brings decades of experience as a federal prosecutor in Arizona, and his unanimous confirmation reflects the Senate’s trust in his qualifications, expertise and commitment to the rule of law and to keeping Arizonans safe and secure,” the senators said.

Restaino previously was part of the prosecution of former Fiesta Bowl executives who attempted to make illegal contributions to politicians and was among the group who successfully prosecuted former U.S. Rep Rick Renzi (R) for extortion and bribery relating to an issue involving federal land, according to the AP. 

Before he joined the U.S. Attorney’s Office, Restaino represented farmworkers for a Phoenix legal aid service and participated in the Peace Corps in Paraguay, the AP noted.
