Based on Swallow's own admissions, he violated transparancy principles with
the use of the boat. Is that alone worthy of jail or prosecution?... I think
not! However, is it worthy of Mr. Swallow 'doing the right thing' and
removing himself from office. I say "Yes"! His actions are a direct
contradiction to the principles of the position he holds.Do us all a
favor, resign... let the Gov/Republican appoint a new person and let the State
move on! This is getting to be "old news" and we the citizens of the
State deserve better!
We're going to get Swallow, one way or another. You Republicans might have
the majorities in Utah, but we Democrats have the courts and we're out to
bring Swallow down.
To "JohnJacobJingleHeimerSchmidt" personally I don't support
Swallow but I don't think he should be kicked out of office either.The issue here is what laws were broken. So far nobody that is calling
for his resignation has been able to say what laws he broke. Do we impeach
people because we don't like what they did, or because they broke a law?This story should be put to bed until the Feds finish going over the
records and can pronounce what laws (if any) have been broken.
The feds will investigate only for federal law violations, not state law
violations. The Governor and Legislature refuse and fail to do anything. If
citizens are not willing to submit to the corruption, what else can they do?
Interesting that the Deseret News is reporting that the principals behind this
are Democrats, when at least one of the "two attorneys" who
"accompanied" them is a signatory to the petition and a former
Republican legislator and member of Alliance for a Better Utah.
Isn't it true that we are judged according to the company we keep? Just a
thought. Swallow should resign. This is not going away, and it
really isn't a partisan matter.
Interesting that despite Swallow admitting he used Johnson's personal
goodies that people still support him. This is crooked and the sooner people in
Utah stop automatically voting for the R in the name, the sooner we will get
better government. The kind that doesn't give away 13 million dollars for
no work being done on Utah roads, then hiring the same company to make a faulty
highway in Utah County.
I have followed the Swallow stories quite closely, ever since they first
surfaced, and I think the full story needs to come out. But I think the group
that filed the petition today is self-serving. With a federal investigation just
getting underway, the justice system should run its course before private
"do gooders" jump in to save us from Mr. Swallow. They will do more harm
than good. Jut let the federal attorney do their jobs without everyone else
trying to get their names in the papers.
Petition alledges?Petitions don't adjudicate our laws.It's time for the Harper Valley PTA to take a hike.
Two top Democrats make allegations & its not politically motivated? Sharks
smell blood but its not a feeding frenzy. Hang in their John Swallow maybe the
calvary will arrive?
Yeah, it's a witch hunt. Hang in Mr. Swallow. There are a lot of us who
