Re "Swallow should go: A.G.'s version of events bad enough" (Our View, Jan. 15):

When my boys became old enough to go out with friends, I would warn them, "If you hang out with jailbait there is a good possibility you could go to jail." The message was simple: Choose your friends wisely.

They made a few questionable choices, but as they matured, so did their choices. It appears that Utah Attorney General John Swallow has neither learned to make wise choices nor matured.

Swallow is still hanging out with jailbait. That being the case, he should not be Utah's attorney general or be in a position of public trust.

I support The Tribune and others who call for Swallow's immediate resignation.
