Disgraced Utah attorney general’s staffers mocked transgender convention delegate

seth crossley renae cowleyTHE GUERRILLA ANGEL REPORT — Investigation into resigned Utah attorney general John Swallow’s illegal campaign activities revealed his staffers engaged in transphobia according to a report in The Salt Lake Tribune.

One of the targets of Swallow staffers Seth Crossley and Renae Cowley was a transgender delegate at the 2012 Utah Republican Convention.

The Advocate published their email correspondence:

Crossley: “77 [delegates] graced us with their presence yesterday [at a campaign event], including the infamous cross dresser!”

Cowley: “I’m still waiting for a picture of the tranny!”

Crossley: “I offered a picture of that thing while it was next to me! You declined.”

Cowley: “No, I didn’t, “I just said not an up the skirt shot.”


‘That thing, while it was next to me?!!’ Something to remember when a transgender conservative tries to persuade you that conservative values matter more than transphobic mocking. No, thank you.


Both staffers have long since moved on, but their transphobic mocking will live on the internet forever.

  1. Only confirms the correctness of why I have nothing but utter contempt for the Republican Party.

  2. Don’t look at just the Republicans this time.
    Look at the machinations of the moron…er Mormon church.
    They weere also one of the prime groups behind prop H8.

  3. Thanks for the comments everyone!

  4. This comment is not to diminish or detract from the fact that the exchanges made in those emails were inappropriate and hurtful at the very least. That being said; I feel it’s unfair for the press to sift through the personal emails of those two individuals and plaster them all over the web. Everyone, myself included, has made mistakes and likely said things in a private setting that would not have gone over well in a public domain. I suspect that if any one of us had our computers confiscated by the FBI as part of an investigation, the press would find some form of incriminating evidence.
