Big stinky foot is his favorite flava

Ah, it’s February, and the smell of hypocrisy and ass-kissing is in the air. We loves us some Utah Legislature meetings, yes we do. Why? Because there’s ALWAYS something funny to write about, and this year, our friend Sen. Chris Buttars is just FULL of shits and giggles.

First there was the “black baby” scandal, and now, Buttars has been removed from his position as chairman of the Senate Judicial Confirmation Commission, after it was revealed he abused his position to threaten a judge who didn’t rule favorably for a friend of his.

According to a story in The Salt Lake Tribune, Buttars wrote a scathing letter, on Senate letterhead no less, to 4th District Judge Derek Pullan, threatening to take away his toys, stomp on his sand castles, and give him an atomic wedgie.

Buttars wrote the letter on Senate letterhead in May on behalf of his friend Wendell Gibby, a radiologist and developer who has been in a running clash with the city of Mapleton. In it, Buttars reminded Pullan that, as chairman of the confirmation committee, he had advocated on Pullan’s behalf and was embarrassed by a decision he rendered against Gibby. He accused the judge of “bias” and questioned his integrity.

The end result, of course, was that the already under-the-gun Buttars was relieved of his chairmanship. If he hadn’t been dissing those poor black babies, this one might have flown under the radar, but right now, every stupid ass thing he does is media fodder.

Tomorrow, we expect he’ll express his great respect for the Nazis and wonder why the heck the Jews are so bent out of shape about all their dead relatives being baptized Mormons. After all, they can always say “No thanks,” if they don’t really WANT to be Mormon….

    More news on Mr. Buttars. He now has proposed a law that would keep police misconduct secret. Why stop at the police? How about extending that to legislatures??
    No, I am not making it up.

    Luckily, most if not all of his bills (including the one against the domestic partner registry in SLC) are getting thrown out – sadly, only for face saving, but at this point I’ll take what I can get. I just hope the trend continues.
