In a bizarre turn of events, Gayle Ruzika, President of the Utah chapter of the arch-conservative Eagle Forum, has sent out a mobilization email in support of John Swallow.
In the letter, Ruzika perpetuates much of the misinformation that Swallow’s supporters and political consultants have been spinning, specifically that impeachment is inappropriate until criminal investigations have completed and calls on supporters to contact their legislators. The email goes so far as to say that impeachment might be unethical and draws the line about what Swallow can be impeached for at his election…
…because, you know, if he did something wrong in the process of getting elected, that doesn’t count, right? The ends justify the means when he’s on our team.
It’s a little disingenuous, I know. Like getting elected is a ‘get out of jail’ card, wiping the slate clean of all the unethical fundraising that may have occurred to get into office in the first place.
Like taking money from donors who were under investigation…on the same days that the investigations began. So, seriously. And that’s out just this weekend. The headline blares that
And kept it, even after he should have known the donors were bad guys.
