Salt Lake City City Council Candidate Says ‘Hateful’ Email About Solicitation Is From One of Utah’s Assistant Attorneys General

SALT LAKE CITY – A candidate for Salt Lake City council said a ‘hateful’ email he received after canvassing in his district was from one of Utah’s assistant attorneys general .

Darin Mano is the current member of Salt Lake City Council and is running for re-election in District 5. He told KSL Newsradio after going door-to-door in his district on Saturday with some of his volunteers, he received an email from Steven A Wuthrich, who lived at one of the doors, knocked it on.

“He said really hateful things, and also threatening language. “

Mano said his staff researched the name on the email and discovered Wuthrich worked for the Utah attorney general’s office.

KSL Newsradio received a copy of this email, which is the same email Mano posted on Facebook without the email address. The email domain was from Wuthrich Law.

“And this is where it felt like a person in this position should be held a little higher, I feel like I should be held at a higher level, and officials should be held to a higher standard, ”Mano said.

The “hateful” email disputes the fact that Mano knocks and leaves a flyer at his door.

“I hate you, I hate your family, I hate your lawyers, I hate your contributors, I hate your sponsors, please die and go see his mother ***** !!!” the email reads.

Mano is also an Asian American and a gay father, and says he left a flyer with his contact details with a photo of his family on doors he knocked on over the weekend.

“Of course, this email doesn’t explicitly say that the reasons this person is upset is because I’m a minority or I’m gay, but I’m still aware I’m highlighting my family which is kinda different and part of a minority group, and so seeing that kind of brings back some of those concerns, ”Mano said.

The Utah attorney general’s office said Wuthrich was working for them, and they are investigating this email.

“We are investigating the possibility of possible disciplinary action,” said spokesman Ric Cantrell.

This story is developing and will be updated.
