Letter: Shurtleff’s outrage is his own doing
First Published Jun 06 2014 04:16 pm • Last Updated Jun 06 2014 04:16 pm

So Mark Shurtleff is outraged over the events surrounding the serving of a search warrant on his home, huh? Further, he said he’s "sick" of all that continues to go on in his life as investigations of what he may have done illegally as state attorney general continue.

Cry me a river, Mr. Shurtleff. What do you think the level of outrage is of the public whose trust you and your successor promised to uphold? Our level of sickness over your and Mr. Swallow’s behavior while in office (if indeed there is proven to be fire causing all this thick, heavy smoke) is surely many times that of what you’re feeling. And while I voted for neither you nor Mr. Swallow, I did have hope you would both uphold all laws while serving.

Back to the recent search warrant. Perhaps if Mr. Shurtleff had more seriously considered the simple concept of "when you pick up one end of a stick (actions), you automatically pick up the other (consequences)," none of this would be happening and his family members wouldn’t be getting traumatized.
