Former Utah attorneys general John Swallow and Mark Shurtleff have been arrested on bribery and other corruption charges as reported by The Salt Lake Tribune:
The charges come at the end of two years of investigative work by state and federal authorities, as well as the Utah Legislature and the lieutenant governor's office. Mary Rook, special agent in charge of the FBI's Salt Lake City office, said investigators will continue to pursue information uncovered during the probe.
The probe also uncovered allegations against U.S. Senators Harry Reid and Mike Lee but the Justice Department under Attorney General Eric Holder thwarted further investigation into them as previously reported by John Solomon for The Washington Times.
