I don't know Greg Peterson, and in no way do I condone the conduct or allegations that he is charged with. These are serious issues.
However, I question the headlines associated with the seven or so stories The Tribune has published in recent months about this matter. Another one today: "GOP activist requests delay in Wasatch County sex abuse case" (Tribune, Aug. 30). Every story has identified him as a GOP activist or fundraiser.
Most news stories identify people by their profession doctor, firefighter, athlete, Marine, whatever. Yes, Peterson had involvement with several GOP events, but primarily he is a certified financial planner. I assume this designation does not carry the same wow factor.
