If a police officer or teacher is accused of something that could get them fired, would it make sense for their best friend to investigate them? No. So of course the house "investigating" Swallow makes no sense.

A long time ago Mr.Swallow lost the concept of "public servant." Maybe he never had it. We don't want him. Yet he continues to stay. Which costs us millions the longer this circus goes. If he really had dignity, he would have stepped down months ago. You know, gone to the always better private sector rather than anger us and cost us millions more to get rid of him.

Hilarious too, the anti-government party seems to love the benefits of working for the government. I wonder why?

I'm glad the Legislature is investigating Swallow. I just want to know why it took so long. And as for Senator Niderhauser, is it possible for him to be objective when it comes to Republican Politics?


Re: Government Man

No. Sen. Howie Stephenson has already declared Swallow innocent of all charges, so I'm pretty sure the public knows how this "investigation" will turn out.

Question of the day.
Who pays for Swallows defense attorneys?
Legal representation is not cheap.
Does the State of Utah pay?
Does he pay himself?

I guess the ultimate question is if the Republican Leadership can objectively police their own ranks? There past performances have shown that they cannot. One party government does not work in China, Russia, or Utah!!

Does it make sense for the House to investigate Swallow? Yes.
