@ arand, Marion Barry snorted in a hotel room and he served time. And you
highlight the need for reform of our drug laws. But it is surely seeming like
your AG is in trouble. Highes law enforcement guy in the state and he looks
dirty. So let's investigate, or better, have him resign because of the
appearance of inpropriety which undermines our confidence in our elected
leaders. Mistakes of youth are one thing, but this is in an entirely different
category. Time to pull the plug on this sordid matter.
I thought we were suppose to be innocent until proven guilty? Not so now a
days. We are found guilty by the media with an agenda of their own. We have
the Mayor of DC caught snorting Coke in a public restroom and re elected. Think
about that one. We have a President that in his own book admits that he used
and sold drugs. I have a friend that spent 4 years in a Federal Prison for
doing the same. The only difference, is that he got caught. Really
folks, what is the world coming to?
How much did slick Gary know about this before the election? How many
legislators know about the pending investigations? Why wasn't the public
notified before the election so that we could have made better choices? Who was
hiding what? We the people of Utah deserve to know these answers. It
is unbelievable how this top secret and dark regime continues to thumb its noses
at the people of Utah. It seems to me like a lot of people kept this
Swallow thing under wrap so that the precious party would remain in power at the
AG's office. Could we see even more people facing impeachment? Just how far
up does this corruption go? Time to find yourself a good lawyer of your own, Mr.
Ahhhhhh c'mon guys!We all know that this is just a liberal
witch hunt! We all know how liberal sources like ksl and the dnews hate Mormon
conservatives! All John Swallow needs is more time! He'll for sure prove
his innocence! We should totally just blindly trust in John. After
all, he says he's innocent! So he must be, right?One thing is
for sure, the last place he needs to be near is our legislature. We the people
of Utah better not stand for his "private meetings" with those who will
soon decide whether to impeach him or not.
The Attorney General and his staff should conduct the business in a manner that
is beyond reproach. It's evident that neither Shurtleff and Swallow are
birds of a feather.Again I will say it.... Absolute power breeds
absolute corruption..We have to have term limits to put an end to
what constantly happens when ANY political party enjoys power for extended
periods of time unchecked.Having an R after ones name does NOT
What is wrong with the lawyers in this circus? JWB is so correct. This town is
too cozy. I've seen it for decades.
Because they are not concerned with 'appearance', only with
'criminal findings'? They believe in a kind of feudal government
imposed from the top downward. They still have the reins of the state's
monopoly on the coercive power of force. This drama is more interesting than
Why would the PR agent for the AG call someone that is part of the litigation?
Will this be made into a movie or mini-series? Who will be cast for the leads?
Is anyone working on a book deal? True, or partially true, or fiction, this is
a drama that keeps on giving.
Stop the drama.....anything to sell a newspaper! Everyone, watch
everything you say in phone calls, personal interaction, emails, internet
watching, etc. Big brother is watching and listening. Anything can be
misinterpreted to fit anyone's agenda! This article suggests that indeed.
This sounds very similar to how John Swallow did things for his Attorney General
boss, Mark Shurtleff in handling campaigning and trips to San Diego.Again, Chicago in upstate Illinois from where I lived, is a very similar
nature in politics and government. The Illinois governors and secretary of
state and congressman have similar tactics and went to prison in the past 20
years or so.Is this what we want in Utah. Guilty or not, ethical or
not, it still speaks about Utah's top law enforcer in a way that has
existed for awhile. This Deputy is one that speaks for AG Swallow on a regular
basis as his spokesman and there seems to be a crossing of the line in his
duties and responsibilities without having an active AG.
So does this new news mean that Swallow's previous squeaky clean public
image is now being brought into question? Wow. Imagine that!
