Lt. Governor Of Utah Greg Bell is now the second major political figure in Utah with a FBI probe aimed at his forehead. The other with the bulls eye on himself is John Swallow.
This is just a rare case we get to see of what really goes on inside of the political power houses here in Utah. I am sure that Utah politicians along with many other politicians walk the fine line from power, corruption, among other back door deals to get their jobs done that the public eye has no idea about.
A lot of attention has really began to shun down on the Utah GOP and it hasn’t been positive. News about John Swallow and Greg Bell have been all over the country and the web.
Will this negative attention really change the way Utahans vote and think?? Probably not. However, some guide lines need to be put in place. The public needs to know that the people they elect into these powerful positions so they won’t abuse the powers we give them to protect us. Not snow us, or belittle us as the public.
Unfortunately this is only two instances that have come forward on fowl play on the hill. We know there are many more instance or stories similar to these. However most Utahans “no pun intended” don’t understand what’s happening or it could just be the norm and most don’t know any better.
Which brings us to another problem . Everyone is “grandfathered” in around here and it’s sickening! Politicians are grandfathered in- Like John Swallow for instance by Mark Shurtleff whom served 20 years previously at the helm. The scary theme with being grandfathered in is that Utah Politicians allow money and power mix and provide a way for others to be grandfathered in like Thrive Learning Institute,
Will Utah change? Will it’s politics and “good ol boys” club change? Doubt it… They will likely cover for their buddies to further their careers to the white house. It’s a sad time we live in.
