1. In violation of Hobbs Act, Rep. Jacob Anderegg accepted money from lobbyists and Special Interest to pay for his family’s trip to China:
b. SLTrib article on Anderegg’s fundraising efforts that indicate that it cost $30,000 for his family’s trip to China. He has only explained were about $5,000 came from: http://www.sltrib.com/sltrib/news/56632376-78/adoption-anderegg-fam...
2. Rep. Anderegg has already been caught and fined for not disclosing the finances related to the trip to Rome, Italy and Switzerland that lobbyists and special interests paid for in September of 2015. The note [A1] on the first line of the chart, which is listed, as coming from Sage Government Solutions. Sage Government Solutions paid $1,280 for Airline tickets for Swiss Trip. There is no corresponding entry by an entity known as “Sage Government Solutions” as a corporation or lobbyist on Disclosure.Utah.Gov web site..
c. Rep. Anderegg did not update his financial disclosure until I posted my blog on January 18,2016: http://davidlifferth.ning.com/profiles/blogs/i-can-t-reconcile-sen-...
3. In an effort to mislead voters on Campaign contributions from disliked developer in Eagle Mountain, Rep. Anderegg and Sen. Madsen exchanged campaign contributions, but Sen. Madsen never disclosed the $5,000 that Anderegg claimed to have given him. This is a shell game that allowed $5,000 to disappear from public view.
On 9/4/15Sen. Madsen accepted $10,000 ($5,000+$5,000) in donations form a disliked developer in Eagle Mountain (the developer that wanted to put the state prison in Eagle Mountain) listed as Monte Visa Ranch in this disclosure:
On 9/8/15 Rep. Anderegg disclosed $2,500 that he received fromSen. Madsen. Listed as donation from “Madsen for Senate” in the middle of this chart.
On 9/9/15 Sen. Madsen disclosed that he gave $2,500 to Rep Anderegg:
On 9/14/15 Rep. Anderegg claimed to have given a $5,000 Campaign Donation to Sen. Madsen’s Campaign. It is also important to note that Sen. Madsen had already announced that he was not re-running for state senate. Also in this chart is the purchase of a Swiss Rail Pass for $1,000 and a reimbursement to Jeff Hartley for $676 for travel to Switzerland that is not disclosed elsewhere.
However, Sen. Madsen NEVER disclosed the $5,000 Campaign Donation that Rep. Anderegg claimed to have given on 9/14/15. This $5,000 DISAPPEARED from public view.
4. Rep. Anderegg and Sen. Madsen were told by House and Senate Leadership to NOT take their spouses on the trip to Switzerland in September. Rep. Anderegg and Sen. Madsen ignored those directives and took their spouses to Switzerland and then on to Rome, Italy:
a. On a related note, Sen. Al Jackson had originally planned to go on the trip to Switzerland, but after discouragement from Senate Leadership, Sen. Jackson wisely decided not to go.
