No Mr. Walker, this is real...

From, 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.

Rep. Mark Walker/

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.
