Carl sent a letter to the Utah Press a few days ago: “You won’t have Carl to kick around anymore! My Hetero Life Mate got me a job in Nevada! Suck it, typing monkeys!” (Carl talks in red, see?) Then, the shit hit the fan, in the most delightful way. Then it hit the fan some more. And, now … now I’m starting to feel kind of bad for Carl, feeling bad about the shitty week he’s having; knowing how embarrassment compounds upon itself  … then I got this:

About Carl Wimmer

Carl Wimmer’s passion for public service began with the South Jordan and West Valley police forces, where he served as South Jordan’s first K-9 officer and S.W.A.T. Team Leader. Elected three times to the Utah House of Representatives, Carl was a force for fiscal conservatism and small government, and a staunch defender of the right to life. His commitment to limited government motivated Carl to found the Patrick Henry Caucus, a national organization opposed to the unconstitutional expansion of federal power. An early and vehement opponent of Obamacare, Carl had the foresight to sponsor and pass a bill that paved the way for states to sue President Obama over his unconstitutional health care law. Carl resides in Herriman, Utah where he remains a certified reserve police officer and owns a small business. He and his wife, Sherry, have three children and two foster children.

I don’t know about you folks, but when my life goes this terrible, this quickly, the last thing I’d do is throw a press conference.
