    I would submit that the harrumphing about this and other white collar crime is more that warranted. I'm incensed when I hear these stories. However, I would submit that comments from Esquire and Scrappy do attributing this corruption to "insider Utah culture" or in other words Mormons is silly. I suspect there is less of this type of crime in Utah but that more of it is caught because there is greater vigilance in catching these kind of things.

    INTELLECTUAL, apples and oranges. What does Trump's illegal immigration policies have to do with white collar crime in Salt lake City?

    It's not like stomping your feet over one problem is going to have any sway over another. Nice try, though.

    I have issues with the League and it's long time CEO that go back 20 years. That being said, it seems to me that the Board over the years has utter failed in its duties. That is surely due in large part to the insider culture that is so prevalent in Utah.

    Meanwhile trump has everyone focused on illegal immigration from Mexico as the problem while white collar crime steals millions of tax payer dollars every year from right under our noses.

    Follow the money!

    This whole "league of cities and towns" outfit seems fishy. It may feed a lot of egos and proivde employment as lobbyists for ex-politicians, but it certainly seems to be more of an excuse to divert or redistribute tax dollars into individual pockets.

    It should be illegal for any public political entity or agency to lobby the legislature.
