pretty typical

Leavitt caught with his hands in the cookie jar:

Part of the funds distributed by a Utah foundation established by Health and Human Services Secretary Michael Leavitt and his family is used to pay the rent for students living in Leavitt-owned apartments. The foundation is under fire for giving away little money -- but securing substantial tax advantages for Leavitt's family.

My parents have some stories (they now live in Utah) that make it plain that this particular kind of self-enrichment (bribes, favoritism, fraudulent kickbacks) is pretty much the norm for everyone in a position to do it in the Beehive State. Gentiles need not apply, of course.
