UTAH COUNTY, Utah (News4Utah) – The Utah County Republican Party is calling on Greg Graves to step down as Utah County Commissioner due to alleged misconduct.
Graves is accused of “harassment, intimidation and retaliation (abuse of power),” according to a statement released by the party Thursday.
“Greg Graves has made a mockery of his office as a county commissioner and also of the principles of the Republican Party,” said Rob Craig, Chairman of the Utah County Republican party. “His conduct is unacceptable. We have higher expectations of our elected Republican officials. These actions demand his immediate resignation. He no longer has the confidence of the Utah County Republican Party and its members.”
The statement goes on to say the Utah County Republican Party has a “zero tolerance for elected officials conducting themselves in public office in an egregious manner… The UCRP, there, believes Mr. Graves should resign immediately.”
The party says if he does not resign, it will pursue his censure and his removal from office if possible. Read the entire statement from the Utah Republican Party here.
In 2015, Graves was linked to an account on the cheating website Ashley Madison. Graves reportedly admitted to having the account, but denied ever having an affair.
