Gary & Me

[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)

  1. Callan got nothing from the Lt. Governor that he hadn't already gotten in the press release from last Friday. It's obvious the Lt. Governor does not want to address this story further than the statement, because his motive is avoiding tampering with the election, early voting for which has already begun.
