Rockygate: The Saga Continues

While everyone has been absorbed by coverage of Hurricane Katrina, the scandal surrounding Mayor Rocky Anderson has continued.

The Salt Lake City Council is considering auditing one of Rocky's pet projects to determine if he followed proper procedures.

Meanwhile, the Deseret News allows itself to consider the heresy that Rocky's snotty personal style might just be hurting Salt Lake City's image (to which every resident of Davis County would respond: "Ya think?").

It's hard to say if the adoring Salt Lake Media have crossed the Rubicon and stopped treating Rocky with kid gloves, or if they're simply following the story because they can't ignore it any longer. The Salt Lake Tribune has remained true to the party line and studiously avoided mentioning anything about the audit. Time will tell. One thing is for certain: With Rocky, there will never be a shortage of material.
