Today's Jackass

After hearing criticism of Tetris lobbying firm for playing all the sides in the stadium project, Salt Lake County Councilman Joe Hatch said in a Deseret News article: "Attack the principles of the public funding for the stadium — don't attack the process unless it's not fair." Councilman Hatch is confusing "technically legal" with "fair". They're not the same. Sandy stabbed SLC in the back with its own money. The Utah Legislature blocked SLC's RDA use last year while clearing the way for Sandy's RDA use this year. Legislature will bully SLCo into sinking all of its tourism money into a political favor for Sandy. Stadium project in Sandy will be paid for by hotel dollars from SLC. The main lobbying firm involved works for SLCo, RSL, and Sandy. Councilman Hatch, NOTHING about this project is fair. Forget "technically legal", this doesn't even pass a basic smell test. The real disappointment has been the unwillingness of County government to stand up for itself and the non- Sandy cities within its borders. In the RSL stadium debate, the Salt Lake County Mayor and Council have been a bunch of pushovers.

Perhaps he believes it to be fair because all sides had equal opportunity to stab each other in the back. If that's his thought, then I guess he figures that the ones that chose not to stab somebody in the back chose to lose. Interesting concept of fairness.

It was pure politics. The legislature consistently blocks anything Rocky and loves Dolan.

They know that SLC does not vote for them.

Which part is so mysterious.?

Rocky consistently blocks anything Salt Lake and loves no one but himself. That is what killed it from the beginning. He never even put up a fight.

Is "Today's Jackass" going to be daily series, and how much does it cost for the honor?
