Oh it will be resolved soon. Mr swallow has launched his own investigation into
this. Help me to stop laughing when they "find" that he did
"nothing" wrong. If only all criminals and unethical people could launch
their "own" investigations!
Mr. Swallow is not a crook. He just said so.
If our legislators in their current interim session fail to directly look into
this matter, it leaves us to wonder whether many of them fear being painted by
the same brush as Swallow and Shurtleff. After all, our legislature has
resolutely opposed all attempts to limit campaign contributions. They insist
that only they, themselves, control the investigations of ethical problems
within their ranks. They insist that they never allow contributions to
influence their voting. We need more light. We need more. We need
more.Please consider the ethics legislation proposed by Utahns for
The debate sifts out as Democrats v. Republicans and has little to do with Mr.
Swallow. If the state AG were actually the issue, everyone would wait for all of
the facts to be presented. In the meantime we are subjected to continual no he
isn't and yes he is. On a state level the Democrats are euphoric about Mr.
Swallow, just as Republicans are gleeful about the White House allegations.
Independents just shake their heads.

integrity and show the same respect regarding Pres. Obama and the GOP witchhunts
going on right now?Did think so...
"Are you willing to show true integrity and show the same respect regarding
Pres. Obama and the GOP witchhunts going on right now?"I think
he did, and I commend him. "just as Republicans are gleeful
about the White House allegations."Virtually everything now is
partisan and it is killing our country.
I know plenty of Republicans who are disgusted by the whole John Swallow issue
and want to see it resolved justly (not just have it go away quietly). I'm
sure there are also Democrats who are upset by the many allegations that the
Obama administration is facing right now and hope for justice to be done more
than they hope that the administration evades any guilt.
A fast resolution is impossible. The Governor and Legislature decided to wait
for the Federal criminal investigation. Swallow lawyered up. Now, unless Swallow
decides to resign there is no quick fix.
