[NOTE TO READERS]: Stories About Accused Utah Fraudster Jeremy Johnson Now Back Online

On March 23, 2012, the PP Blog temporarily removed from public view three stories pertaining to accused Utah fraudster Jeremy Johnson. The explanation of why the stories were taken offline temporarily is here. On March 23, 2012, the PP Blog’s security software recorded a “mass injection attack” as the Blog visited a domain styled CollotGuerard.com while researching matters pertaining to Jeremy Johnson. Collot Guerard is an attorney for the FTC and an alleged subject of harassment by Johnson or people close to Johnson because of the FTC actions against Johnson. The PPBlog is not revisiting the CollotGuerard.com domain and believes it is imprudent for readers to visit the domain.

Johnson is back in the news in Utah in a big way. The PP Blog will have more later on the situation in Utah. The Blog’s “tag” on Johnson is here.

  1. This story is unbelievable. Johnson who was willing to plead guilty if he could implicate the new state Attorney General in sentencing. When the government balked at his conditions, he went public. The scheme apparently was to have the new AG hire a lobbyist to influence Senator Reid. The price was to be $600,000. The intermediary has since died but there is no evidence that a legitimate lobbyist was hired. The intermediary retained $50,000, the new AG got $20,000 for undisclosed legal work and the rest of the money is unaccounted for.

    The Salt Lake Tribune and Salt Lake City Weekly are all over this. The Provo Daily Herald, probably the most conservative news paper in the State has called for the AG’s resignation. It is a veritable mess. No one would ever believe Johnson but he has a stack of emails and a 60 page transcript of a secret conversation.

    Johnson’s next hearing is in February at which time a trial date will be set.

  2. DL: This story is unbelievable.

    Totally agreed, DL. I’ve never seen anything quite like this in my life.
