Swallow's campaign supported 100 percent by his predecessor was to get his
anti-federal supporters on board even with comments negative against the
Governor and federal versus state lands. No mention about campaign financing
from less than desirable donors and methods,or Krispy Kreme interviews across
the street from the convention. Delegates were inundated by the various Eagle
Forum and Tea-Party Republicans pushing their wares that day. The Chris Stewart
campaign on stage and the electronic voting with untested use was quite a
convention with the known potential problems let alone the unknown withheld
information from the AG Shurtleff on trips with his successor to exquisite
resort type areas. The federal government has some problems but it
is not as unexpected as this was in 2012 with the President's truth in
action such as Benghazi. At least in this case, some information is surfacing as
they can't keep the information hidden for national security purposes.
Efforts were made by some of the delegates that worked in The AG's office
and supporting other candidates but to no avail with Mr. Shurtleff's
personal and glowing report on all the John had and would do for the State,
legally and with honor. Delegates are swayed by politicians in office with the
hand-picked successors. Mr. Shurtleff was pushing for John through all kinds of
investigations to the day of elections. He must have wanted John elected for
some reason. Was it their past associations and John's ability to swing
deals. The tangled web is entangled with money deals and promises at
Utah's expense and good people.
Nothing is good when Johnson and Swallow meat in a donut shop.At
least Johnson at the decency to buy a dozen donuts when they were done.
And somehow Utah didn't make it into the top 10 most corrupt state
governments. If it doesn't deserve it the U.S. is in trouble. --AGF
I remember when redshirt and 2 bits attacked me for bringing up how my aunt was
taken advantage of by Bank of America and how she lost her house. I remember
them blaming her for losing her home instead of the illegal activity that
occurred inside of our AG's office and in doughnut shops that permitted
people like my aunt to be ripped off.Where are the Swallow/Shurtleff
defenders now? Why are they suddenly so silent? Time to be accountable and admit
that you were wrong.
This is getting more hyped and disgusting every day, first the political
profiteers in the state legislature desperately distancing themselves from a
media-driven scandal, and now the private opportunists swarming like vultures
circling their prey. At the end of the day, in the Book I believe
in, we will all be accountable to a much higher Judge in the Highest Court of
All. I hope that we will all be as forgiven as we are forgiving. I do believe
that Truth will prevail.
True - very difficult on these men. Supposedly the U.S. Attorney is fueling
this due to extreme differences of opinion.
The story is getting worse. Why didn't the state delegates see that
Swallow was just a Shurtleff clone. As a moderate, I supported Reyes 100% after
vetting the candidates. Seems like the caucus system is letting us down when the
far right tries to control politics for us all. Swallow only got elected in the
first place because of the Eagle Forum.
It's not getting any easier for these two.
