It's been a bad week for Mark Towner. First, he embarrasses the Attorney General, then the former Utah School Board hopeful, and one-time candidate for the Utah senate puts his foot in his mouth trying to solve 55 years of US-Iranian relations. Mr. Towner preaches:
Is is now time for America and the UK to again unite and teach a lesson that will never be forgotton. We either are the paper tiger's that they claim, or we need to send the message loud and clear, we will not allow you to continue your Jihad against the West.Churchill he is not. WWII this is not.
We must act now and bring the radical arm of Islam to task with such overpowering strength, that they will cease to be an issue. We must declare War on Iran, and using the bigest and most powerfull nuclear weapons available, we must destroy every military and nuclear facility in the country. It must stop now.

But still, Mark has been and continues to be heavily involved in Utah politics. The Attorney General himself agreed to let this man fund-raise for him (which fell apart after Towner chose to include a "Wench Auction" in the event, sticking with his strange obsession with pirates).
This, people, is what is currently stagnating Utah's political arena. For someone to speak this irresponsibly on a matter of foreign policy, and then receive a warm handshake from any state official, let alone the Attorney General himself, is a grievous distortion of aptitude and political responsibility.
Let the Attorney General know how you feel about the company he keeps.
Let Mr. Towner know what you think of his post.
Let the Salt Lake Tribune know what you think of it all. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
It's time for a little accountability in our governing bodies and political debate.
