A crack appears in the wall

Once again, Salt Lake Mayor Rocky Anderson finds himself in the middle of a controversy. Seems he might have broken the law when he accepted a donation for a trip to Italy.

But this dust-up is different from past ones. The Salt Lake County Democrat Party chairman, Megan Risbon, has joined Republican calls for an investigation, an amazing step for a party that allows Rocky to do pretty much as he pleases.

It's not surprising as to why. Rocky, with his outrageous behavior, bigoted statements, and far-left activism has alienated virtually all LDS voters in the state, and a good majority of the non-LDS voters outside of Salt Lake City. The local and state Democrat party officials have watched, cringing, as he has offended voters both conservative and moderate, and they perhaps have begun to realize that if he keeps this up their candidates will have virtually no chance of being elected to any statewide office.

Rocky, of course, is apoplectic. From his ritzy hotel in Washington, DC, he screeched:

"I have a hard time understanding why she's even involving herself in this. She knows nothing about the facts or the issue," said Anderson, who had asked players in the party to remain on the sidelines. "Democrats have a long history of screwing up just about everything they touch."

Let me answer this one, Megan.

Rocky, they're getting involved now because you are a big, fat, rotting, stinking albatross around the Utah Democrat Party's neck, and they've decided that if you're going to sink yourself they don't want to go down with you. It may be just Ms. Risbon now, but they're eventually all going to cut you loose.

Just thought you'd like to know.

Talk is that Sandy got the new soccer stadium over SLC due to Rock-head. The Sandy city mayor is a Republican and has lots of friends in the legislature whereas Rock-head is a Democrat and doesn't really do anything to make friends in the legislature. Ergo, who do you think has a better chance of getting some state funding for the stadium?
