The Deseret News Correction
The Deseret News correction of Bob Bernick's mistake does not change my opinion of what happened. The only thing the correction does is indicate that Mark Towner was misquoted. It does not in any way change what actually happened. Mark Towner clearly expected Ridgway to be prevented from attending the convention. What's amazing is that this man was hoping to ask me (as a voter in his Senate district) for the PRIVILEGE of being in the Utah Senate. I suppose Mark can partly blame the rest of his party for his actions. After all, the Utah Republican Party has become little more than a cloak and dagger game where some like Senator Hatch buy it and some like Speaker Greg Curtis kill (metaphorically) for it. Mark Towner was just copying everyone else.
