In most places, within the United States, politicians are very discreet in accepting "strings attached" campaign donations. These politicians at least have respect for their electorate's cumulative intelligence and reasoning ability, and do their best to hide these transactions.
Maybe I am missing something, but here in Utah this behavior seems to be widely practiced, in the open, almost transparently (it was obviously good enough for our default governor). IMHO this reflects poorly on the Utard electorate, who either do not understand the ethical problems this raises, or don't care because they are focused on more pressing matters like: Utah Jazz Coaching succession plans.....
Critical thinking used to be fostered within our public school systems. Perhaps our Utard legislators have actually succeeded in dumbing down the majority of voters enough to suit their political interests.

By far, Dana's biggest campaign contributor was Temple Har Shalom. Look it up, see who belongs to the Temple, who has benefitted from Dana's 'governance,' other than Red.

Sorry Nan, you might have to start another new thread now.

Park City is corrupt as helll.
