Real knee-slapper
This is an archived article that was published on sltrib.com in 2013, and information in the article may be outdated. It is provided only for personal research purposes and may not be reprinted.

I rarely LOL at a legitimate news story, but Utah Attorney General John Swallow's comments as reported in "Utah A.G. John Swallow: I did nothing wrong and won't resign" (Tribune June 13) were a real knee-slapper.

In response to Gov. Gary Herbert's concerns about all the "stuff that's bubbling out," Swallow asks, "Why would you step down from a duly elected office when two-thirds of the people in Utah elected you because of your vision and your platform?" Really?

If Swallow actually believes that nonsense, he is far more delusional than I could have imagined.
