    How could he have become the republican candidate for commissioner in the first place? Wasn't he vetted by the delegates to the County Convention?

    Oh, right. As Republicans are fond of saying, this is not a democracy.

    He lied about the risk of the investment. That is basically theft.

    Impersonating...
    Interesting choice of word considering
    the entity they (the defendants) are
    representing.

    The headline is a bit misleading. This guy is not on trial for impersonating a religious authority of the LDS faith. He is standing trial for defrauding people out of their money.

    He could have pretended to be anyone or anything for that matter - the fact that he lied and basically stole money is the reason he is on trial.
