Swallow Committee Delays Final Report
The House Committee investigating former Attorney General John Swallow pushed back the release of their final report Friday. It is now scheduled for public release some time next week. Committee Chairman Rep. Jim Dunnigan, R-Taylorsville, says he delayed the release to be able to include information they only recently recovered from a crashed hard drive in one of Swallow’s personal computers.
“I would describe the material the we received in these recovered emails from the crashed hard drive as in large measure corroborating our work and our presentation that we did in December,” he says.
The final report will be more than 200 pages long and include more than 3 thousand pages of related documents. In part, it will outline how John Swallow used a system of non-profits and political action committees to hide where a large part of his campaign donations were coming from. Once finalized, the report will be made available online.
