    Randy, as a lifelong Democrat and as your friend, I find this problem over the edge and call for you to resign your office and retire.
    I wouldn't stand still over this kind of action from a Repug as I feel it is offensive to the taxpayer and outright dishonest. Randy, I expected better from you. I'm very disappointed in your actions and the way you are trying to minimize it.
    Representative Curtis stole gas from the County and we were on him for it. We called him a crook and the actions dishonest. It was and so is this.
    Randy, you need to man up and resign with an apology to the citizens of Salt Lake County and the State of Utah as well as Democrats that have put their faith in you.

    NIce try there, Randy. The old "Bart Simpson defense."

    I didn't do it.
    Nobody saw me do it.
    You can't prove anything.

    Even if Randy Horiuchi can be shamed into retiring, I think that he believes in a hereditary monarchy, where members of a chosen elite family can all get into political positions for a career of "doing good" both for others, and likely themselves as well. Sadly, with "low information voters" name recognition counts for more than actual policies.

    Well this just shows how much alike the Demos and Repubs are. It stinks.

    Amen Flash. Mr. H has a long history of shady interactions that somehow get spun as 'misunderstandings.' Maybe this time things will be different (and maybe I'll keep my New Year resolution to lose weight ;-)

    Wow! How suprising (can you feel the sarcasm dripping?). From East Bench deals to Traverse Mountain deals, to UTA deals. Horiuchi has been ethically challenged for years and should step down and resign. He's been on the public dole too long and he personifies the professional politician. And the Democrats have a fit about Orrin Hatch. Horiuchi has been in office a long, long time also.

    UTA has been running wild for years slashing services, and increasing fares. Suddenly it makes more sense why it's been allowed.

    Spoken like a long term politician. I did. But I think I didn't. I did. But in my mind it wasn't wrong. I am proud and stand by my actions. I would do it the same way again.

    Just file the paperwork and disclose. That's all that was being asked.

    Nice way to slip this in the Christmas/New Year lull.

    I hope Utah_1 is right and the councilman is held accountable for his lack of disclosure.

    Nicely put NedGrimley.

    Uh...Well...Um...I didn't really do anything, except for what I did do, but that was't really anything and, besides, no one else does it, so I shouldn't have to do it, or not do it, or whatever works to my advantage...

    If this was a legislator it wouldn't have happened, as the disclosure forms are required and are filed. You will not find even one legislator that doesn't file one every year. Miss a filing and you can be off the ballot plus fined.

    This is a big deal. The council should censor him, he should be fined, the required form be provided and be on file, and if not, he should be removed from office.
