Mention “Utah Attorney Generals,” and everybody here laughs!  We’ve witnessed 3 shameless “pay-to-players” in the last 6 years.

              Modified from Dave Chappelle’s “Dave Gets Oprah Pregnant”

But outside of Utah, outfits like the Republican Attorneys General Association (RAGA) pay large sums to enable current AG Sean “Rappin’ Rambo” Reyes to play hard

1/24/2014: $100,000.00 [from] Republican Attorneys Generals Association
10/7/2014: $50,000.00 [from] Republican Attorneys General Utah PAC
8/6/2015: $100,000.00 [from] Republican Attorneys Generals Association
12/28/2015: $50,000.00 [from] Republican Attorneys General Association

7/26/2016: $85,000.00 [from] Attorneys General Association


Reyes has even wormed his way onto RAGA’s Executive Committee Can they be that naive and clueless?  These RAGA-muffins are endorsing and financing an embarrassingly-obvious scammer.

According to Reyes’ glowing RAGA profile:

“… Honorable Sean D. Reyes … Today, eradicating human trafficking in Utah and nationwide remains a priority for the Reyes administration along with other important policy initiatives including opioid epidemic which led to his co-founding of Utah’s Opioid Task Force ….”

They apparently haven’t seen the Reyes’ who raps, revels, and rolls in hypocrisy at the top of Utah’s Takers.  Specifically, the Big Pharma “Opioid Epidemic” largesse that oozes from Reyes’ deep pockets.

So… We’re sending this post to the RAGA-muffins to see if they are content to aid and abet Reyes’ two-faced profiteering.  We want them to consider carefully the PR nightmare he is creating for their organization.  We’re also sharing this with their Democrat AG (DAGA) peers around the nation.

They should ponder a little harder on the 480,000 Big Tobacco Deaths every year and approximately 702,000 Big Pharma Opioid Deaths from 1999-2017 in America.  Calculate the cost of pretending to oppose these malevolent industries in public while allowing a member of their “Executive Committee” to stuff his coffers full of dirty money.

We’ve identified lots of choice corruption for Utah’s tongue-wagging, Pimp Mobile Drive’n, Rap’n Rambo, Bling’n Bishop, AG Reyes.

And don’t forget the $2,903,997.69 that our Loosey Goosey Lt. Governor Spencer Cox says Reyes spent.  Especially the $1,035,463.13, or 36%, that went to corporations controlled by Reyes’ Campaign Spokesman, Senior Advisor, and Penny Stock Pusher Alan Crooks.  Talk about letting the fox take command and control of the hen house.

Furthermore, the Reyes anomaly that follows and the individual transactions on December 31st have all of us scratching our heads wondering if it isn’t an end-of-year tax scam?  “Diamonds by Donna?” Sheesh!  It reeks of sleaze.  We’d begin digging there and around others identified in the PDF below.

Among a host of other compelling reasons to dig, dig, dig, an astute, junk-yard-dog investigator would be energized by the fact that any transactions in these amounts — with their unique configurations taking place at the end of the calendar year for taxes — are… questionable. What really went down on December 31st?

Federal and State funds flow more freely if hyped around hot, high profile, criminal justice issues. 

Reyes has slickly propelled himself to State and National prominence by riding the tsunami of hysteria, publicity  and tragedy surrounding Human Trafficking.   In his case, “An ounce of publicity was worth far more than a pound of performance.”

Here’s the real story …  Lynn Kenneth Packer, former KSL reporter fired for exposing Utah’s Goodfellas, revealed how Reyes has used the child trafficking issue to advance his political ambitions via shameless, grand-standing PR stunts and failure to investigate the highly-questionable activities of at least one private entity he promoted, and was involved with.

Consider also that, in 2017, there were 34 human trafficking cases reported in Utah.  Compare that impact to the 650 drug overdose deaths in Utah that year and the 1,300 adult Utahans who die annually from smoking related illnesses.

What has Reyes done about it?  He’s set up a diversionary “Opioid Task Force,” while personally profiteering via Big Pharma’s ($152,750.00) blood money and  Big Tobacco ($21,500.00).

  1. Utahns For Real Change
    If you agree that the system here is broken, then please be aware that this extends to and through the University of Utah when it comes to our state. I am embarrassed to have been personally associated for eleven years with an institution that has been a part of a system that upholds discrimination and rewards those complicit in keeping victims silent. Change starts at the top; the top of the University and the top of Government/Law Enforcement; in this tight-knit state they are overtly hand-in-glove. The U of U is instrumental in shaping the voices of tomorrow, yet its independence from questionable state government is more compromised today than it has ever been. Minorities are paying an enormous price for this increasingly cozy relationship between the University of Utah and the Utah State Attorney General’s Office.

    In 2017, the University of Utah hand-picked Sherrie Hayashi to lead their Office of Equal Opportunity, the office charged with handling ALL internal discrimination at the University of Utah. Ms. Hayashi had previously spent the past decade leading the Utah State arm of the EEOC/UALD (Anti-Discrimination Labor Division), thus her experience made her an obvious choice at first glance. However, within a year of Ms. Hayashi assuming her position at the U, the shocking results of an audit into Ms. Hayashi’s former agency’s performance over the previous 5 years were publicized. What was shown was that her UALD organization, the Utah State Agency charged with investigating issues of discrimination and relation by all Utah employers, found in favor of the plaintiff FIVE TO NINE TIMES LOWER THAN THE NATIONAL AVERAGE. Essentially, what that meant is that the audit exposed that the UALD was silencing the voices of the already unheard in Utah while under Sherrie Hayashi’s leadership. Despite the audit making the local paper, the University of Utah dismissed the horrifying audit and Ms. Hayashi has remained in her position as of today where she has been instrumental in continuing her job of keeping quiet the victims of discrimination within the U of U system. Essentially, by hiring Ms. Hayashi with her publicized history, the University hired a “Top Cop” to do a job that is supposed to be centered in empathy in the most sensitive of situations.

    Furthermore, Ms. Hayashi was only hired after U of U Vice President (and former Dean of Students), Lori McDonald, and Chief Human Resources Director, Jeff Herring, were caught LYING DIRECTLY TO I.C.E. IN ORDER TO GET A STUDENT DEPORTED in 2015. Both Dr. McDonald and Mr. Herring have never denied their part in deliberately supplying false information to the Department of Immigrations and Customs deliberately to get a student deported and have received no disciplinary actions at the University. In fact, Dr. McDonald was promoted in 2019 despite her potential negligent role in the 2018 death of Lauren McCluskey and/or tone-deaf follow-up that included U of U campus security lights not working for weeks following the murder in a darkened parking lot. Because of Mr. Herring’s former position in Utah State Government, no one was held accountable or prosecuted for providing false information to a federal agency that led to the deportation of Yung-Kai Lu.

    But how can all this go on in the open? How is it that all these bad people keep performing corrupt acts in the wide open? Two answers: The Local Media & The Utah Attorney General. But first, it is important to understand a little bit more about Jeff Herring, the man at the University currently being asked to step down by the McCluskey Foundation. Mr. Herring was hired in 2013 when Dr. Lori McDonald (then the Dean of Students) was caught using the University of Utah’s OEO Office to attack whistleblowers including Austin Fiascone, who had tried to report couch Gregory Winslow, pre-empting his famous arrest. Even the University President at the time, David Pershing, had to apologize to Mr. Fiascone on Dr. McDonald’s behalf at the close of 2013 following Mr. Winslow’s well-publicized arrest. As the former State Human Resources Director, Mr. Herring came on board at the U because of his ability to work with the Attorney General’s Office to more proactively silence complaints relating to discrimination and whistleblowing. Mr. Herring is a lawyer with a knack for knowing how to delay people past filing guidelines that he works hand-in-hand with the Attorney General’s Office to ensure they are upheld to silence victims.

    https://concussioninc.net/?p=8382

    And just as Mr. Herring’s background suggests, he has been instrumental at silencing those who have tried to come forward to blow the whistle on the broken systems still at work within the University. In 2019, the University even lost a second lawsuit to a victim of Mr. Herring’s legal meddling; Judith Zimmerman. In fact, Mr. Herring has been in the news several times in recent years, including his instrumental participation in protecting Utah Attorney General Sean Reyes as he fired whistleblowers (and even had one arrested) in 2013. With a trail of U of U whistleblowers that have been shut-down by the A.G. Office, it would appear that Mr. Reyes has been returning Mr. Herring’s favor.

    This brings us to the final person in this corrupt chain that needs to go. Sean Reyes wears the honor of having the most disproportionate rate for police killings of African Americans.

    “In Utah, the African Americans comprise just 1.06 percent of the population but they accounted for 10 percent of police killings over the past seven years – a disproportional rate of 9.21 times.” – Al Jazeera, May 2020

    It is this statistic that says all that Utah needs to know about our Attorney General. Can you name the last time any Utah Police Officer was held accountable for a racially-motivated killing? Certainly if we are the leader is disproportion, some of those deaths have to be racially-motivated. So, where are those held accountable? Can we name one? The system of turning a blind eye to racism and discrimination in Utah is a top-down system that starts with the Attorney General, point blank. The AG is where District Attorneys take their cues from, and that includes holding police officers accountable as well as allowing the investigation and prosecution of hate and discrimination crimes.

    https://www.aljazeera.com/indepth/interactive/2020/05/mapping-police-killings-black-americans-200531105741757.html

    As a former student and eleven-year employee of the University, I have watched, first-hand, as this system worked to silence victims of racial, gender, and ethnic discrimination on top of repeatedly mishandling sex and weapons crimes happening on our Campus on a very regular basis. Join me in asking for the resignations of Jeff Herring, Lori McDonald, and Sherrie Hayashi from the University of Utah in the name of progressing to a new way of thinking and moving away from an era of Utah underneath marred by the silence lead by Sean Reyes. Additionally, as our governorship will surely only transition from Herbert to his Lieutenant, Spencer Cox, please lend your support for at least opposing Sean Reyes this fall when he runs for re-election for Utah Attorney General. If you can, vote him out in the Republican Primary where he is running against David Leavitt. Remember, it is the Attorney General that sets the tone for conduct by law enforcement as well as how laws are interpreted and prosecuted. Out with the old system.

    1. Josh or Ian … whomever … I have replied to your most interesting email via my justice@utahwtp.com email address. Thank you for connecting. There’s a liklihood we’ll have an opportunity to visit at length and in detail. Best wishes, Wayne
