Arrest Warrant Filed for Arizona Lawmaker with Fraudulent DRE License

A former Arizona lawmaker who was once the chairman of that state’s House Judiciary Committee but left office after being pleading guilty in the AzScam bribery scheme of politicians in 1990 is now a wanted man.

Donald James Kenney used the clean record of his son, Donald John Kenney, to get a fraudulent real estate broker’s license in San Diego County after he was released from prison. He was a broker for Coldwell Banker and apparently operated a legitimate real estate practice for 14 years until the long arm of the law – in this case California Department of Real Estate – caught up with him. The DRE ordered the elder Kenney to stop practicing real estate and referred the matter to the San Diego police, who filed charges of perjury in the obtaining of his real estate broker’s license and various identity theft crimes. The son has stated he did not give his father permission to “borrow” his clean identity.

Donald John Kenney surrendered the real estate license that was in his son’s name.
