So given my passing interest in politics, I have found the recent events in my home state quite interesting, wherein no less that the majority leader of the Utah State House of Representatives, Kevin Garn, has resigned pursuant to disclosure of a small impropriety: a naked hot tub party with a 15 year old. He insists there was no touching, but his victim says otherwise in this SL Tribune article.
In his public remarks last week, he "I did not want to be publicly judged by one of my life's worst decisions."
Um ... oh you didn't, did you? Well what a surprise. I mean ... I wouldn't want to be judged by sexual abuse of a minor either, but ... if I were guilty of it ... I'd pretty much be stuck with that, wouldn't I? And what's he doing avoiding a superlative here: "ONE OF MY life's worst decisions"? He's done something else that's worse than the sexual abuse of a minor?
This guy had been her Sunday School teacher and is a former LDS bishop. The shame this brings to him, Republicans in Utah, and the LDS Church is depressing, but at least he's out of office now.
