On Saturday, Darin Mano, Salt Lake City’s first member of the Asian American Congress, was going door-to-door in the election campaign when he sounded the assistant attorney general of Utah Steven Wuthrich (Steven Wuthrich). s home. Obviously, Wuthrich was taking a nap and was very upset to be interrupted, so he emailed the following to his colleagues:
“I will do my best to see that you will never be elected to a higher position than the dog catcher. I hate you. I hate your family. I hate your lawyer. I hate your contributors. I hate it. Your sponsor. Please die to hell–!!!”
Mano told NBC News that in light of the increase in anti-Asian crime and racism, he believes it is important to inform the public about this matter. Wuthrich has already apologized.From NBC News:
“Last Saturday, I woke up from a nap and reacted excessively angry just because my calm was interrupted,” Worthridge said in a statement. “Since then, I have regretted the ferocity and language of that email. My words were uncivilized and unprofessional.”
In his initial email, Wuthrich stated that there was an “unwelcome solicitation” sign on his door. Mano said he saw the sign, but clarified that “collection and election are not the same thing.”
“Our understanding of the law is that campaigning is protected by the First Amendment-which is why we are particularly shocked because people would think that the Assistant Attorney General would know the difference,” he said.
