The Cox Act
Yet Another Ethics Complaint
Filed Involving Spencer Cox
As if we haven’t endured enough of “Loosey Goosey” Lt. Governor Cox … purposely keeping sloppy records … slyly corrupting Utah’s Supreme Court … and incessantly braying about being “homegrown in Utah” … we now report on another unabashed abuse of his office for political, personal, and financial gain.
An April 30, 2020, petition signed by Utahan Eric Moutsos names the Office of the Lt. Governor and Spencer Cox, and alleges “Unlawful Expenditure of Public Funds (in violation of) UCA 20A-11-1203.” In other words, Cox has done it again.
Spencer Cox has unethically and unlawfully pulled and primed campaign donations out of social media advertisements paid for by the People of Utah. How’s that for the one official who should have set the example for all others to follow?
Utah’s shattered reputation as the “pay-to-play” affinity fraud capital of the United States begs for a new steely-eyed, incorruptible Attorney General — with a pack of Junkyard Dog investigators laboring beside him. If only Citizens could impanel Grand Juries with sitting judges who haven’t been endorsed and compromised by “Opioid Orrin” Hatch or Gary “Available Jones” Herbert.
Under improved circumstances, we believe (as in hope springs eternal) “Loosey Goosey” Cox and many other Utah Goodfellas could eventually be eating jailhouse chow, wearing bright orange jumpsuits and cleaning toilets at “Point of the Mountain.”
Troubling Cox-Vegas Connections
We’re also looking long and hard at any contributions coming out of Las Vegas. After investigating Organized Crime for decades, it is our experience that, by and large, political money coming out of Las Vegas is dirty money.
Even the smallest dollar amounts contributed by “innocent” voters have simple strings attached. A decent individual may contribute a hard-earned dollar in hopes that the best person will win and the contribution will help facilitate the return to the Rule of Law and Good Governance. That’s an example of a decent string attached.
For the majority of “high dollar” contributors, however, the strings and motives are cut from a different cloth … especially when high-dollar Vegas donors are involved. Vegas gamers have been wallowing for generations in Nevada’s sleazy, murky, and nefarious political swamp where complex and convoluted tit-for-tat, quid pro quo “arrangements” are as common as green Jello dessert dishes in Zion.
Here’s one for $25,000.00 to Cox from “Rustler Investments,“ a corporation controlled by an old-time Las Vegas “Wheeler Dealer” who spends a lot of time “tilting” with the IRS. What legitimate interest, pray tell, does this “Goodfella” and his corporation have in our Governor’s race?
Cox’s Las Vegas funders include an individual donation of $10,000.00 coming from a source of funds that sends shivers up and down this Ole’ Buzzard’s spine. This donation is traced to Banjo. Banjo’s recently-outed CEO Damien Patton, a to-be-feared, social media and personal privacy information snooper, is “on the ropes” in Utah after his lucrative $21MM state contract was cancelled.
Interestingly, Patton and his Banjo were “on and off” as Utah “Rap’n Rambo” AG Reyes’s darlings. See also the Tribune article, “Utah company Banjo is building a massive surveillance system with the help of the state’s attorney general.”
Reyes sucks up to money, power and influence from whatever source until or unless it might bite him in the _ _ _ er’ ah’ where he sits. Case in point is his Washakie scandal, where Reyes kept the dirty campaign money, but abandoned his buddies the “perps” when they became public relations baggage and liabilities.
Reyes gave a similar glowing report about Banjo CEO Patton on an October 26, 2019, Twitter Tweet:
“A privilege to participate at @TheIACP in #Chicago with friends and crime fighters / crisis prevention professionals @banjo CEO Damien Patton, dear friend @ParkCityPolice Chief Wade Carpenter and so many amazing men & women from around the country. #LawEnforcement #PoliceChief”
Banjo may be staging a comeback in Utah by covering its bases with a bet of $10,000.00 on Cox and $5,000.00 on Huntsman. “Ten to five” … we’ll watch those Las Vegas odds but won’t bet any money on them.
Win, lose, or draw, Cox is staying on our radar.
Utah’s affinity fraud rackets involve Church, State and Las Vegas
How did Utah become such a “pay-to-play” romper room for political sleaze bags? How did we become infamous as the affinity fraud capital of the United States? Where did this seething, networked underworld of criminal lowlifes crawl out of?
Much of Utah’s conglomeration of “Goodfellas” is “homegrown” and invested in limp-wristed characters like Spencer Cox. But some networks reach beyond Utah’s borders and into long-standing criminal consortiums.
Nowhere is the history of Utah’s “confluence” of Church, State, and outside corrupt interests more convincingly chronicled than in Utah Holiday’s 1980 article “Don’t Touch the Dice” below.
Still Waiting for the JCC…
We’re still waiting for the Judicial Conduct Commission (JCC) and Utah Supreme Court to decide our ethics complaint naming Utah Supreme Court “Associate Chief Justice” Thomas “Hoops” Lee. We allege Lee has brought himself, his office and the Utah Supreme Court into disrepute.
The complaint was delivered to the JCC on June 10, 2020, at 12:37 pm, Front Desk Reception Mail Room, Salt Lake City, UT 84115. Below is our calculator.
Calculate the days lapsed from…
06.08.20 to 06.23.20 = ~15 days.
Government employees, contractors and all others should be mindful that intimidating, interfering with and/or engaging in any way to discourage the right of a citizen to report shameful, inappropriate, fraudulent or unlawful conduct is a crime. Utilizing office email, or any other means of communication, to further such interference is also criminal conduct strictly prohibited because it aids and abets original, unlawful acts. Supervisors and Division Heads may be particularly tempted to interfere and are therefore vulnerable and culpable if they do. The Ole’ Buzzard and Team will duly report any and all unlawful conduct.

“Our strategy should be not only to confront empire, but to lay siege to it. To deprive it of oxygen. To shame it. To mock it. With our art, our music, our literature, our stubbornness, our joy, our brilliance, our sheer relentlessness – and our ability to tell our own stories. Stories that are different from the ones we’re being brainwashed to believe.” -Arundhati Roy
