    Two former Utah attorneys general, John Swallow (R) and Mark Shurtleff (R), were arrested in a long-running corruption case on Tuesday morning.

    Shurtleff has been charged with three counts of bribery, one count of obstruction of justice, one count of witness tampering, one count of evidence tampering and one count of unlawful acts, according to the Salt Lake County jail's website, Swallow has been charged with two felony counts of bribery, one count of false or inconsistent statements, one count of false government records and one count of unlawful acts.

    According to the Deseret News, the allegations surrounding Swallow and Shurtlefff center on their relationship with a Utah businessman, Jeremy Johnson. Shurtleff allegedly used Johnson's private plane to fly to a California fundraiser and to fly to New York to meet with actor Vincent D'Onofrio. Swallow allegedly stayed on Johnson's houseboat and borrowed his Ferrari.

    Federal and state law enforcement searched Swallow and Shurtleff's homes in June amid a probe into the state attorney general's office. Swallow had followed Shurtleff in the office, but resigned last year amid several federal and local investigations.

    Authorities have been investigating possible bribery, obstruction of justice and misuse of public funds.

    So many Republican Crooks, yet so few ever go to jail. Just wondering, do you think Christie will get off, as well.

    Surely, all of the Republican CROOKS in Reagan's, and both Bush's Administrations, got off! And we know Ford, pardoned Nixon, another Republican Crook!

    Check out this old article about Reagan's Iran/Contra FAILED POLICY. I have been looking into how thhe current lawlessness in Central America, today, was linked to Reagan's secret supply of arms for the Contras! Also linked to all sorts of bombs and misiles, he sold to Iran. The more I read about Reagan, the more I realize just how much of a lying crook he was, and worse, he was stupid, as well. Reagan and Bush one, were just as corrupt during Reagan's administration, as the Bush/Cheney Crooks.

    Nothing damages America more than Republican CROOKS! Their stunning stupidity, a function of their delusions of grandeur, and their natural built in greed always leads them to think that they're so smart, they can get away with anything, and everything.

    Wikkipedia has a wealth of information about Iran/Contra, and Reagan's corrupt connection with the Israeli's, his outright law breaking, and how stupid he was through it all. This old New York Times article is worth reading...

    Makes one want to throw up when thinking about the attacks on President Obama, from Boehner and Issa. What a crock!

    Things have gotten even more complicated for Christie, he is now also under investigation over possible securities law violations stemming from a plan to repair the Pulaski Skyway.
