[Petty Politicians] In the spirit of filmmaker Michael Moore's Roger & Me, came a spoofy report earlier today by KSL radio's Tom Callan. Utah Lt. Gov. Gary Herbert kept avoiding Callan, who was trying to land a comment from the LG about his decision not to investigate a bribery allegation in the Republican state treasurer race.
When Herbert saw Callan coming his way, he deftly walked the other way--several times--at the state Capitol. Callan tried to dig up Herbert's public daily schedule, but had trouble getting it.
So he did what any reporter worth his/her salt would do: He reported it.
Pretty hilarious stuff. Now, KSL is reporting that Herbert finally talked to Callan. As you might expect, the public official--whom you pay with your tax dollars to avoid press scrutiny--gave Callan a little scold for his tenacious behavior. (Holly Mullen)
