Utah Scam King - Former AG Mark Shurtleff Arrested

Mark Shurtleff was arrested for accepting bribes from Utah scammers.

The one guy who took money from Thrive Learning, Summit Group, etc. instead of shutting them down is now to spend 30 years in jail.

Happened in July - (just catching up - I've been off doing other things.)

SaltyDroid has been following this guy for awhile ('Droid started in 2009, interestingly) and was satisfyingly gloating over this.

Mark Shurtleff Attorney General of MLM … detailed a few of the many connections between Mr. Shurtleff and the Utah’s pyramid scheme “industry.” Most {prolly all} MLMs are pyramid schemes … and Utah is the undisputed center of that world. Mark Shurtleff didn’t just take bribes from these parasites :: he actively participated in their shenanigans … and continued to do so until the very end.
And there's some great videos on the blog post to watch.

Of course, it's at least 5 years too late for most of us. But at least it's something.

Far more details here:

After investigating for more than a year, authorities on Tuesday arrested two former Utah attorneys general on charges of bribery, misusing public funds and other counts. Salt Lake County District Attorney Sim Gill on Tuesday laid out allegations against John Swallow and Mark Shurtleff that involve gold coins, luxury houseboats and jets and thousands of dollars in cash or campaign contributions.
