earlier wisdom of the 2011 Utah legislature, It seems, surprise of surprises, that a pair of crackpot Utah GOP legislators are set to reprise legislation to "fiddle" with the "Divinely-inspired" US Constitution.
Specifically, we're referring to Utah Senate President Wayne Niederhauser, R-Sandy, and his Utah GOP House of Representatives cohort, the ever-ethically compromised House Rep. Ken Ivory, R-West Jordan, who is, incidentally and weirdly enough, "the Legislature’s unofficial (and apparently self-appointed) 'constitutional expert.'"
The Standard-Examiner carries the full story for your critical scrutiny, folks:
Utah Policy is all over this story, too:
- States Likely Could Not Control Constitutional Convention on Balanced Budget Amendment or Other Issues
We'll suppose that this is just another nitwitted Utah-style "message bill," at least for the time being, inasmuch as only three other states have passed resolutions calling for a 21st Century Constitutional Convention --so far.
Trust us though, we'll keep keep you posted, if this crackpot bill somehow emerges from "the realm of the dead."
