SALT LAKE CITY – The Utah Elections Office released the results of a special investigation of Attorney General John Swallow regarding violations of Utah Election Code. The applicable statute explicitly contemplates civil, not criminal, penalties, including removal from public office.

• P-Solutions reasonably should have been disclosed under subsections (4)(b)(iv), (v), (vii) and/or (x) as providing more than $5,000 in income to Swallow within the year before his filing, because he reasonably can be construed as acting as an officer, director, or formal advisor to P-Solutions, and because P-Solutions reasonably can be considered his wife’s employment or occupation given her position as the sole manager after March 15, 2012.


• SSV Management reasonably should have been disclosed under subsections (4)(b)(iv), (vii), or (x) because Swallow reasonably can be construed as acting as an officer, director, or formal advisor to SSV Management and because SSV Management reasonably can be considered his wife’s employment or occupation given her position as the sole manager after March 15, 2012.
