The pressure is likely going to force Swallow to resign but he shouldn't.
He should allow the process to completely play out.
"Democrats will do virtually anything to gain power"See,
this is the strange thing about you guys, you really think that Republicans,
also, would not do virtually anything to gain power? You seriously believe that
Republican politician are not just as drawn to power? If you do you are very
naive indeed and have no understanding of politics and power.
We have cases where elections were overturned which of course is what this is
all about. Al Franken in MN won in a contested election where the Democrat Sec
of State made no bones about his partisan desires. Christine Gregoire who lost
the Governors race in Washington but had Democrat Judges unusual ballots found
way after the election in King County and low and behold she became Governor.
Democrats will do virtually anything to gain power and it is no different in
Utah. Conservative and Republicans maybe falling for this same trick with a huge
effort by the Utah Media to destroy Swallow. If he's guilty charge but if
innocent exonerate. DM and Tribune and others are potentially going to cost the
state of Utah millions and overturn an election where guilt has not been proven.
@byu alum. The attorney generals office has basically become a pay to play
office and your assertion that he hasn't broke the law proves how void our
state is of any ethics.
As a state delegate, I never trusted anything I heard from the Shallow campaign.
He is just more of the same arrogant attitude we had during the Shurtleff era.
Time for the legislature to realize that Shallow can not effectively run the AG
office and they need to act.
Mr. Swallow is innocent until proven guilty. There may be many claims. Lets
wait to see how substantial they are.
@DN Subscriber 2SLC, UT"Consider the source before calling
out the lynch mob... again. This is from the same guy, described in the
story as an "imprisoned swindler..."========= Ya!Let's just ignore any accusations coming from other
"bad" guys.Because we all know that "bad" guys ONLY attack
"good" guys, and never any other "bad" guys.How
about we investigate to determine the TRUTH, rather than ignoring the alleged
misdeeds of someone because they happen to be a Republican.
This has so surpassed the point of becoming merely a distraction for the
AG's office. IOCC is right; Swallow, and his record have left a remarkable
stench, which the GOP has allowed to permeate throughout Utah for far too
long.I, too, am glad to see that the Deseret News has decided to
demonstrate impartiality and start catching-up with their coverage of the
Swallow/Shurtleff scandals. Good job!
I hope this daily airing of Republican dirty laundry...Continues.
Enough of this. The AG office needs to be swept clean along with reforms to make
the position an appointed one. Campaign finance is tied up in this. Just as on
the national level, personal interests drive elections and corruption is the
result. Is this how we want our government to be?
I also agree with DN Subscriber. Why are we taking the word of a convicted felon
who is trying to save himself as truth? Let's get to the bottom of the
story before we draw any conclusions.
DN Subscriber & BYU alum, Where I am from when you ask for a million
dollar membership and a cabin, it is nothing more than a shakedown.
Sooooo... According to all the swallow apologists.... Everything is incorrect?
Swallow hasn't done anything wrong? Wow just wow. How many more agencies
need to find him guilty of crimes before you folks open your eyes?
DN Subscriber: I agree 100% with you.
Kudos to the D-News for at least covering this story. Utah is a better place if
it's not just the Tribune who uncovers this type of news.The
stench of Swallow's track record is remarkable. It remains to be seen if
the GOP will impeach him, but at least the D-News is performing its role as a
free press is supposed to.
Consider the source before calling out the lynch mob... again.This
is from the same guy, described in the story as an "imprisoned swindler"
Marc Sessions Jenson" who started making charges many months ago, so this is
just another embellishment of his wild tales since his earlier accusations have
not gotten him out of his own legal mess.Before everyone
pontificates and demands resignations (or worse) for Swallow, let the darn
investigations already underway see if there is any truth to all these charges.
If so, the impeach and/or convict away.If the investigations show no
illegal conduct, a whole lot of people are going to look really bad, unwilling
to allow justice to takes its course.As a falsely accused Secretary
of Labor once said "Where does a person go to get their reputation
back?" after a witch hunt like this turns out to be much ado about nothing?
If any of this is true, he needs to resign and take his medicine. Dragging this
out will only hurt his family and the state.
