The circle of friends who I associate with are completely sick of this whole
thing. They are annoyed with the constant newspaper articles that rehash the
same thing. The legalize and squabbling of the varying interest groups
especially the partisan hacks who want blood rather than solutions. It is
getting to the point that the quickest and fairest solution with the least cost
to taxpayers should be the desired course.

Why keep throwing taxpayers money away to get revenge.Why? Because the law
was broken. And more may have been broken. You and I would get full prosecution.
Swallow is no different. Keep digging, keep pushing.
This is not a revenge issue. When Mr. Swallow, the Chief Law Enforcement
Officer in the State of Utah went around the rules he was obliged to go by, he
took down the integrity of the whole process in Utah. He and the previous
Attorney General tread where they should not have been. The appearance of evil
is bad enough but if the probably cause in the Elections Office investigation is
that demanding that Mr. Swallow resign, this is not a revenge issue. Plenty of
people have gone to jail for lying, cheating, stealing and even worse from their
political ambitions. Mr. Swallow wasn't a novice to the political game.
He ran for a national office, he was a legislator in the State of Utah and was
involved in law practice and other business activities. He had been the Chief
Deputy in the prior Attorney General's office. He knew that houseboat
excursions under certain circumstances could be contrary to his office policies.
He knew that getting various contributions from certain people and in certain
places could jeopardize his career. We have our whole elected
official system to protect.

If the State of Utah and County Attorneys don't do something in this
action, we will definitely become as Illinois and Chicago with elected officials
playing games with their elected office and especially the public. Playing word
games on civil versus criminal is an injustice for the people that rely on the
State of Utah's elected Attorney General to fulfill the requirements of his
office as he swore to do in January 2013. As the Chief Deputy of the prior
Attorney General that knew and attended some of the "perks" of money
gathering for their elections and continued efforts, they both knew what was
going on. Now that Mr. Swallow has resigned he believes this will
all go away. Swallow did that as an "excellent" attorney and
politician, he should have thought about the implications of pushing the law.
Criminals push the law to the edge and finally get caught. They only do a
little here and a little there. It won't make a difference as everyone
does it. Integrity used to be a part of the political game in Utah. Now, we
are just like the political wigs in Illinois. Politics forced our fathers from
OF COURSE Snow says Swallow would win in court. He wants to keep that billing
clock running.The next step should be fullest prosecution
possible...and Sim Gill with the assist of the FBI isn't done yet.
Dennis,did you mention that Swallow was a "Republican"?
