Friending the Legislators

By City Weekly Staff
Posted // March 9,2011 - Which Utah legislator would you want as a Facebook friend?

Erik Daenitz: I’d have to pick Rep. John Dougall, R-Highland, as long as he ended each Facebook post with the phrase, “You just got Dougall’d.”

Nick Clark: I’m always looking for the latest trends in mustache grooming. I would imagine Carl Wimmer’s wall has got be chock-full of useful tidbits for the mustachioed politico.

Scott Renshaw: Right, because that’s what I need in my life: Getting FarmVille requests from Carl Wimmer.

Rachel Piper: I’m wary of friending politicians. Most of their Facebook posts are riddled with spelling and logic errors, and their off-season posts are about cooking, relaxing or being on vacation. I already hate them enough without being subjected to that.

Jesse Fruhwirth: I’d rather follow the janitor who cleans out their trash—I’d probably get a better idea of what they’re really like.

Dan Nailen: I’m sure this is a popular choice, but Sen. Chris Buttars (R-Hell). The things that come out of that guy’s mouth—you’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll want to kick him in the head. That’s far more interesting than the average Facebook “friend.”

Bryan Bale: Only those who are my friends in real life.  As things currently stand: none of them.

Jerre Wroble: Who among them might be counted as a friend? Let them eat Tweets.

Eric S. Peterson: Buttars. The guy is a caricature of Utah ignorance when it comes to LGBT issues, but in light of his fighting HB477, his vote against liquor license quotas and his support of drug treatment programs, I would friend him.

Becky Lockhart! She's hot. She's a BBW in the freakiest, most hypocritical, conservative do-as-I-say-not-as-I-do, repressed-tighty-whitey's boy's club in the country. . .well, maybe Arkansas or Texas' legislatures are weirder, but only by a few degrees. I would pay good money to know what goes on in her mind when she just looks at Carl Wimmer or Gov. Herbert.
