Dan Harrie is "Standing by it"

Standing by it.

In response to LavArr's comments:

All he says is likely true. Nevertheless, here are some facts -- verifiable by anyone who chooses to.

The state Commerce Department lists Webb as a director of Parents for Choice in Education Inc., in its current, active filing.

His Exoro Group received $7,000 from Parents for Choice in the 2004 election cycle. Yes, that was "years ago" but not that many years. And he published paid advertorials from Parents for Choice in your UtahPolicy.com.

Like I said, none of this is bad. It's all very fine and more power to him. But the connection should be disclosed in his column. Simple and helpful to readers of the column, like me.
