Letter: Swallow could put end to expense of investigation
This is an archived article that was published on sltrib.com in 2013, and information in the article may be outdated.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.

Poor ethically challenged John Swallow ("Swallow: Panel's goal is to get me," Tribune, Nov. 8) has now resorted to the Nancy Workman defense: Stop investigating me, spend that money elsewhere — do it for the kids! Yet wiping clean his electronic trail when he knew he was being investigated only increased the costs to taxpayers.

All that righteous indignation. Has anyone noticed how he slips into the royal "we" on occasion as he actively campaigns against those investigating his actions?

The man didn't have the morals to behave ethically in the first place; he didn't have the decency to resign (for the kids, for all of us), and now he doesn't have enough sense to maintain a dignified silence.

Out to get him? It doesn't seem to have occurred to him the panel may be out to get the truth. But apparently our AG wouldn't know truth if it walked up and bit him on the butt.
