As If Utah Needed Any More Bad Press
Senator Orrin Hatch received an ethics award last year during a Washington scandal in which he appeared to have taken a high road and insisting "gentlemen do not read other gentlemen's mail". After learning more about the situation since then, it is clear now that: "Senator Hatch's handling of this incident was in truth an example of a leader throwing a subordinate to the wolves in order to burnish his image." See The Ethics Scoreboard report on Senator Orrin Hatch's revoked award. "Hatch himself has a well-earned reputation as a prolific leaker of confidential and even classified information, and also had a role in creating the atmosphere of bitter ideological combat on the Judiciary Committee that led to the incident." Ethics group revokes Hatch award- Deseret News Senator, even though this is your only career, it's not yours to turn into a joke.
