@BYUalumSouth Jordan, UTSome think John Swallow is guilty
until proven innocent. That is the media's tune.========= Ya - as opposed to the Constitutionally superior Tea-Partiers and their
Obama talk radio rhetoric?
Swallow is not guilty of anything but cleaning house of the trash the former AG
left for him to clean out, this angered dozens of politicians who were using
Shurtleff to vilify controversial public spending and investments that were
shady.Cleaning house means he made some enemies and this is how they
being a bunch of sore losers. When politicians lose some perks it make them
spitting mad and know the power of accusations. The accusers are forgotten but I
hope Swallow can use his payback powers to rid Utah of those legislators
inclined to be criminally motivated.
It is simple, John Swallow is the victim of con artists. If the Democrats want
to continue than they should do it at their expense. The average Utahn
doesn't care. I mentioned the problem in a group of people Friday and no
one other than myself knew who he was or what was going on. Perhaps
Mr.Swallow can get back to protecting the citizens from these con artists from
what he has learned. This doesn't require spending these huge amounts of
money, just put the subject in committee and fix the system if there is a
problem. Mr. Swallow unfortunately is a victim but sadly he had the department
to protect him but that was a failure, too.
comparing Swallow and Shurtleff to Nixon and the White House Plumbers is
hilarious. I think it's time to let this thing drop.
Unfortunately for John Swallow, he probably will never be able to be elected
again even if he is completely innocent. Politics are so vicious these days.
@ BYUAlumConsidering elected officials and politicians in general
guilty until proven innocent goes far beyond the media. I suspect it is the
belief of a large fraction of the general public. It certainly is among the
people I chat with.
Seeing the feds dropping any charges against Swallow should be a strong
indication that this whole situation has been wrongfully caused by people who
have been charged with illegal offenses and the opposing political party. I
think Senator Niederhauser is close to right with his comments.From
what I can see Swallow may have been guilty of making some bad judgement calls
but nothing illegal or unethical has shown up.
Politicians stick together, don't they? Remember Richard Nixon and the
White House Plumbers Squad?
Some think John Swallow is guilty until proven innocent. That is the
media's tune. Justice in the United States of America says "innocent
until proven guilty." I think John Swallow is innocent!
John Swallow is yet a long way from home. And, as said in the article, his
reputation is permanently sullied. Absent some extraordinary circumstances, at
best he is a one term AG.
