When the State of Utah accepts federal dollars for programs, especially with the
Attorney General and staff overseeing and monitoring, there would still be a
link as there could be a connection to the investigation.Criminal,
civil or ethical is what this investigation is about. At leas the Legislature
has some law firms that have dealt with similar situations in their experiences
and with their expertise. When it comes to the previous Attorney General having
John Swallow involved in his campaigning and then hiring him as his Chief Deputy
for his money and campaign collection services is sort of a tight knit group.Where was the former Attorney General's supervision of John
Swallow, his handpicked successor?The former Attorney General
didn't even withdraw any support prior to the election as far as potential
voters could see. Was it appropriate that Mark Shurtleff was guarding the
henhouse while John Swallow was inside?
It would seem that last weeks celebration about dropped Federal investigations
may have been a bit premature.
