Barton calls for Crandall ethics investigation

State Representatives Brenda Barton and John Fillmore are requesting a Senate ethics investigation into the actions of Senator Rich Crandall, which they decribe as “disorderly behavior.” Citing the need for the investigation, Representative Barton stated, “It is important for legislators to be mindful of the decorum that is expected of them both in and out of the capitol.”

Barton said she hoped the Senate “will take a serious look into whether or not Senator Crandall violated any rules of disorderly conduct.”

Crandall threatened Barton in a telephone message, in the matter of his daughter’s alleged tampering of Senator John Fillmore’s signs, that he was “furious with you right now, and you better not try to run any educational legislation next year.”
