Clean up the money and you will clean up government. Government done in the
daylight is better than government done in Republican back rooms. Save Utah
vote Democratic this fall.
has anyone thought about just copying the best existing system? It is difficult
to imagine it would not less expensive than building your own, but then people
forget that the most obvious solution is often the best solution. Elections are important..think about it!
With ethics violations in GovermentBad LawsThere is no Law in
Utah.Quite clear many of us recognize the problems going way back to the
beginning and before StatehoodFirst is no seperation from the LDS
ChurchThis is a must so people are free to chooseThis may be Utah,
Just the same this is the United State in America, Not a seperate
Country like CubaThe only way for change is voting incumbunts out and
Republicans with LDS leadership ideas
I wonder if we could get a law passed before November 4th on Campaign Reform.
The new law needs to stop Greg Curtis from being able to keep his cool 500,000
thousand after he loses big to Jay Seegmiller. Maybe Curtis can lend this money
to struggling illegal immigrants that work for all the developers who gave him
the money!!! We need good open government. Vote Democratic this fall!!!
Yay hoo! We got a D-. Our moms will be proud...
I didn't take the Lt. Governor's staff comment to be something (a D-minus) he
was happy about - he admitted it was poor and mentioned that his office is
always striving for improvement.Perhaps its the laws, not the
Lt.Gov's office who should be addressed in comments here. Mr. Davidson does a
fine job of pointing that out, I think....
Um, I say Utah should receive an "A." I have just as much credibility as some
stupid "public interest" group.
Until it is illegal for lawmakers to accept anything from any outside source,
the system you have in place will be a corrupt one.Lot's of luck
getting that changed.
"A D-minus is poor, obviously. But I think we're at least moving in the right
direction."This reminds me of a college buddy who celebrated when he
finally passed his Calculus class with a C-minus (after failing twice). He
shouted, "Hooray, I'm adequate!"A D-minus is definitely nothing to
celebrate. We voters should demand much better from our legislators. We should
hold them accountable for their lack of disclosure and resistance to finance and
ethics reforms. But then again, this is Utah, so having (R) next to your name
is good enough for the vast majority of voters.
What's new?Utah is a steady history of lax ethics and rife with
conflict of interest problems since and before it became a state. Interestingly, over the past few election cycles here in Utah, it has been the
Republicans who have consistently shot down attempts at making the electoral
process more transparent...So much for the honesty and uprightness
of the party of Utah values...Vote straight Democratic ticket in
November 2008 to get some REAL things done, instead of more of Bushnomics and
