Follow the money.The "Attorneys for the Utah House
committee" are getting paid handsomely (by us taxpayers) and the long they
can drag out their fishing expeditions, the bigger the bill. Leave no
opportunity for a billable hour unexplored.What a waste of tax
dollars on what has been shown to be, in two investigations already completed, a
fruitless witch hunt for political reasons, based on bogus allegations from
convicted felons.I hope the Democrats are preserving every phone
record, every email, every bit of web traffic, every home computer, and
everything else for when it is THEIR turn.Swallow's biggest
crime is that he is a conservative, and the liberal democrats and even some
"moderate" republicans see investigation of him as an opportunity to
smear all conservatives.
DN Subscriber 2, You call this a fishing expedition? Well, if it
is, it looks like they may have caught the big one. Face it. Things
aren't looking too good for Swallow. This is not a partisan issue. I
would like to remind you that the Republican super-majority is investigating
Swallow, so yes, the Democrats should be preserving their communications, and so
should Republicans (a bit advice you seemed to have skipped). It is the law.
It is a law that Swallow has apparently broken and another reason for his
removal from office for lack of public trust in a position that demands public
trust. Here is a snippet of the State Archives Directive requiring all agencies
to back up their e-mails for at least ten years: "Like all
records, email records are work-function related. They are subject to legal
retention schedules and have administrative, legal, fiscal, or historical
value based on content....Department directors (this mean's Swallow) should
work with DTS and the State Archives to have their system set up to preserve
permanent records that will be transferred to the State Archives."
@DN Subscriber 2 - Mr. Swallow is the one who is causing the increase in
billable hours. There are too many coincidences in this case, he is hiding
something. The question is, will investigators be able to find the missing
If DN Subscriber 2 is so worried about wasted tax payer dollars, He should
be asking for John Swallow to RESIGN right this minute, rather than
dragging it out. If his has nothing to hide, why did those e-mails
and computer records just suddenly come up missing?BTW - this
investigation is being headed by the REPPUBLICANS in this state -- NOT the
Sounds like someone hid the fish.
No one in the AG office should EVER lose data.We've learned nothing
in the 40 years since the 18 minute gap.
When the Swallow investigation is completed and Utah taxpayers have paid the
bill and it turns out that he is exonerated are we going to do as thorough a job
into the accusers? Democrats obviously want him gone so do the liberal interest
groups. This should say something about how liberal special interest groups
DN Subscriber 2SLC, UTFollow the money.======= We did.BTW - that's how this all led to AG John
Swallow's shifty and illegal dealings.
