Politics as Usual up on the Hill

I'll let you guys determine for yourselves. No matter who's at fault in this one, politics is getting dirty in Utah's Capital... http://www.sltrib.com/ci_9807783?source=rss For the full text of Walker's resignation letter, click here. This whole thing just smacks of too much power vested in too few people who themselves want to keep that power to themselves. Can someone please explain to me why the Treasurer is an elected position? Let it be appointed by the governor (reflecting the Federal model) and poof, you suddenly take politics out of the position. I guess we wouldn't have much to talk about if we took the politik out of politics, though. And think of the tens of thousands of Political Science majors who would be out of a degree...
