I had the same problem. I used Object > Flatten Transparency (with the art selected) and it fixed it. Why? I have no idea but it did work, even though there was no transparency applied to the art that I know of.
Click on Direct selection tool(shortcut : A). Click on the object. Anchor points will be shown. Now carefully click on the anchor point. Use arrow key to move the anchor point together in the direction desired
Since you are asking about Illustrator -- Grab the Direct Selection Tool (the White arrow) and click the anchor points on the left, and move them. That's all there is to it.
