  • Utah lawmaker: All school board elections should be partisan

    Horror stories about alleged campaign corruption by former Attorney General John Swallow ironically helped block passage Tuesday of a bill to limit campaign donations in Utah, one of just four states without such caps. Lawmakers worried that limits might hamper honest politicians in raising enough money to combat groups that sometimes funnel large amounts of untraceable “dark money” into an election, as is alleged to have occurred with the Swallow campaign in cahoots with payday lenders. As a re... More
