Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, July 10, 2024

Former Republican attorney general candidate Frank Mylar was charged Wednesday for allegedly attempting to bribe opponent Trent Christensen with a job in the Utah attorney general's office if Christensen endorsed Mylar and Mylar then won the 2024 primary election. The charge, one count of third-degree felony bribery in elections, carries a potential penalty of up to five years in prison and a $5,000 fine if Mylar is convicted. According to the charges, on the morning of April 19, eight days before the Republican state nominating convention, Mylar sent Christensen a text message that included the sentence, "If you could endorse me before the convention I would definitely include you in my office. Think about it for a few days. Thx. Good luck today."
