Standard-Examiner Letter: Herbert Can Get Lots More Than Ten Grand For Political Favors

In fact, $10k happens to be the going rate for a mere small-city mayor these days

Thanks to a timely tip from an alert WCF reader, we're delighted this morning to shine the spotlight on a freshly-posted Standard-Examiner Letter to the Editor, written by one of our very own frequent blog contributors. Check out Dan Schroeder's new online "outburst," which playfully springboards off last week's highly-revealing "political contributions" story, and ties in a few pertinent local Emerald City small-town facts and observations:
Herbert can get more than $10,000 for political favors
No doubt about it (as Dan S. aptly points out). Top-tier Utah politicians like Gary Herbert should never under-value their "services" in Utah's lucrative political marketplace.

As an added bonus, and for the benefit of other Utah politicians who don't want to sell themselves short, we link below Ogden Mayor Boss Godfrey's most recently published political contributions rate-sheet:

Don't let the cat get your tongues, O Gentle Ones.

It is truly appalling how blatant and in your face the political corrupt is here in Zion. The vast majority of the corporate, and large, contributors to Godfrey have directly benefited financially from the tax payers of Ogden. Some to the tune of many millions of dollars.

Hmmmmm.... Maybe Ten Grand Gary sees himself as the Wal-Mart of paws-out Utah elected officials, and he's hoping to make up in volume sales what he loses by lower pricing. Not a bad marketing strategy mid-recession.

Fabulous work, as always, Dan.

But at least Godfrey and Herbert get paid. The city council often sells out for mere hot air.

Yes, but Godfrey is immature, vindictive, and chicken shit.
