No Mr. Walker, this is real...

From SLTrib.com, Ethics probe could take an ugly turn:


"I think" those bringing the new ethics investigation "are just using me as a whipping boy to get to (GOP) leaders," said Walker, R-Sandy, who lost the GOP treasurer's primary Tuesday.

The new investigation "is just a vindictive political cheap shot ... to harm the elections of others" in the House this year, Walker added.

Maybe Mr. Walker is simply incapable of understanding the severity of the allegations that are facing him. This ethics investigation is a necessary and most needed step towards ethics reform on Capitol Hill.

If there has been a political cheap shot it has been played on the Utah voters who put their trust in Mr. Walker and other GOP leaders who played a part in what could (and should) be the unraveling of GOP dominance in the Utah.

Personally, I would hope that all persons who are guilty of involvement in the violation of this law, if any were, will be held accountable to the fullest extent possible.
