By Howard Stephenson
Utah State Senator, District 11
Just to clarify, I have not endorsed, nor am I campaigning for democrat Stuart Reid in his bid for Utah Senate. Stuart and I are friends but, once again, Paul Rolly at the National Enquirer, er, I mean, Salt Lake Tribune has published misleading information
Rolly has my phone numbers. As often as I’ve appeared in his column, you would think he and I talk once in a while, even if it’s just so he can verify important facts. I can't recall once in the past five years when he has contacted me to authenticate the negative stories he often writes. Other legislators tell me they have had the same experience with Paul. They wonder too, how he can report so authoritatively on meetings he fails to attend.
Last session, Tribune reporter Matt Canham gave me a can of bee spray for occasions like this.
If that doesn’t work I’ll get a big flyswatter . . . wait, I'll just use these Stuart Reid doorhangers. SPLAT!
