Recently, a Washington, D.C.–based organization, Campaign for Accountability, made allegations of fraud toward a member of the Utah State Legislature, Rep. Ken Ivory. Ken organized and leads the American Lands Council, ALC, which coordinates efforts to help the Western states gain control of federally owned lands.

A radical group posing as a public interest organization — and attempting to obstruct any productive use of federally controlled lands in the West — has chosen to level these accusations rather than engage in honest debate. This is simply a tactic, one that we’ve seen over and over again from such groups, which is meant to diminish the progress of Rep. Ivory and many others involved in helping our state recover control of our public lands as promised in Utah’s Enabling Act. The motives of those involved in the transfer of public lands debate have been questioned and the facts distorted in order to undermine progress towards this goal.

I have known Ken Ivory for nearly three years and I know that he sincerely desires the best for our state. I have found Ken to be tireless in learning and understanding the history of the Enabling Act of Utah and the laws that govern the territories of the United States as they filed for statehood. He has promoted fairness among the states by highlighting the doctrine of equal footing.
