Two former Attorney Generals for the State of Utah were arrested on numerous counts yesterday, July 15,2014. They were arrested at their homes early in the morning by the FBI and Public Safety.
Swallow, who was forced from office in December less than a year into his first term, was charged in 3rd District Court with 11 felonies and two misdemeanors, including multiple counts of receiving or soliciting bribes, accepting gifts, tampering with evidence, obstructing justice and participating in a pattern of unlawful conduct.
Shurtleff, who served 12 years as attorney general before making Swallow his handpicked Republican successor, was charged with 10 felonies, including receiving or soliciting bribes, accepting gifts, tampering with witnesses and evidence, and participating in a pattern of unlawful conduct.
John Swallow was forced out of office after only serving ten months. He was replaced with someone even worse, Sean Reyes. GA Reyes is dead set on fighting gay marriage, and does not care about wasting the tax payers money. Never mind more funding for schools, expanding medicaid for the Utah poor. That is more important at this time. This is the Utah Way.
