    Hey, Utah AG, why not close up shop and head to CA or DC where you can make a lot more money for doing nothing??

    Let's see: there is smoke, two smoking guns, clear evidence that crimes were committed and you do nothing. Dr. Watson would be a better choice than you.

    Now Jensen in on another government agency?

    Geez, I thought moving here from Las Vegas would be an improvement over local government. We were naive.

    Jensen goes from closed door meetings in the fire department to closed door meetings at the Inland Port Authority. See a trend here? The whole port authority idea is getting smellier every day.

    Also, does the Utah Attorney Office prosecute anyone these days?

    What is very troubling is Scott had child pornography on his computer, but continues to coach and be on board of Herriman youth Football. (Kids range from 7-15) How can that be?

    I've known Mike Jensen for years and I like him.

    But now I feel he is so tainted that he needs to step down from the County Council as well as any boards he's on and move on.

    I understand the prosecutors' dilemma here, but given these facts, why in the world was Michael Jensen rewarded with a seat on the Inland Port Authority? That's just a kick in the face to the Utah taxpayers.

    911 Dispatch, School Board Super intendant, UTA now the Fire Dept why does Utah continually see these types of fraud Its always the excuse "little oversight"

    After a decade of these types of fraud why doesn't Utah hire and oversight committee to over see the funding.

    Why does Herbert and his incumbent politicians keep wasting Utah tax dollars it seems to me its time to vote out the current legislature and vote in a new one.

    Politicians needs to know if they are not for the people they will be voted out by the people stopping giving them this much power

    “ Jensen currently serves as a Salt Lake County Councilman and was recently appointed to the controversial Utah Inland Port Authority Board.”

    I find this troubling....

    Jensen "appropriated" over 500K and doesn't go to trial? Plus, he's appointed to the Inland Port fiasco? We don't need to drain the swamp in DC. We need to drain the swamp in Utah government.
