Wow. Johnson and Lawson....both associated with Shurtleff and Swallow.
It's getting pretty deep now, and none of these characters are remotely savory.

IMO Johnson needs to take responsibility for what he did and quit trying to bring down the people around him to distract attention from what HE did.

HE is the criminal. HE is the convict. HE tried to use his money to get out of what he did. Swallow should have told him to get lost when he asked him to help, but he tried to help a wealthy constituent (what politician in either party hasn't tried to cater to a wealthy constituent at some time in his career)?

And why is Harry Reid's involvement and communications on this not being investigated at all? Is it because he's a Democrat? Is it because he said he knew nothing about it? It's easy to say you knew nothing about it... but how do we know that's true?

Why all the investigation on Swallow... and NONE on Reid?

IF Swallow didn't even CONTACT Reid (as Reid says)... then what did Swallow do that was illegal?

Going to a hotel in California with a constituent isn't illegal guys!

What a difference a few years makes.
Remember when Johnson was a hero for using his own equipment to fly relief missions to Haiti?
No matter. The filthy underbelly of business and politics needs exposure now and then. Our politicians didn't seem to mind the free trips and condos.

Mr Swallow obviously is in deep trouble that would not have been brought to light without Mr. Johnson - who may want to have friends in prison with him. I am grateful Mr. Johnson has shed light on how corrupt Swallow and Shurtleff and many other are. Neither are not-guilty and it is being proven by investigative reporters in Utah.

If you are a friend of Mr. Shurtleff or Mr. Swallow - I suggest you find other playmates and they will most likely not be available to play outside walls before too long.
