Official in Utah A.G.’s office sends hate-filled email to Salt Lake City council member

Salt Lake City Council member Darin Mano, who was out campaigning in the neighborhood, says “there’s no room for hate in our city.”

(Rick Egan | The Salt Lake Tribune) Councilman Darin Mano, seen in this file photo, was appointed by the City Council to fill a vacancy left by Mayor Erin Mendenhall in 2020. While campaigning to hold on to his District 5 seat over the weekend, Mano received an expletive-filled email from an assistant attorney general.

As Darin Mano was knocking on doors this weekend, campaigning to become the first Asian American elected to the City Council by Salt Lake City voters, he apparently set off an official with the Utah Attorney General’s Office.

Steven A. Wuthrich, an assistant attorney general, sent Mano an email Saturday complaining about someone ringing his doorbell, “waking the dogs and waking us and the neighbors with an uproar.”

“I will do everything in my power to see you never get elected to any office higher than dogcatcher,” Wuthrich wrote to Mano, who was appointed to Erin Mendenhall’s vacant District 5 council seat in 2020 after she was elected mayor.

District 5 includes central neighborhoods in the capital, including the Ballpark area and Liberty Park.

“I hate you,” Wuthrich’s email continued. “I hate your family. I hate your solicitors. I hate your contributors. I hate your sponsors. Kindly die and go to hell” — while including several obscenities.

Wuthrich initially refused to speak to The Salt Lake Tribune when called for comment, but then, after this story appeared online, he issued an apology late Tuesday afternoon.

“Last Saturday, I was awakened from a nap and reacted with undue anger based solely on the interruption to my tranquility,” Wuthrich wrote. “Since then, I have regretted the ferocity and language of that email. My words were uncivil and unprofessional. From me personally, I apologize to Salt Lake City Councilman Darin Mano and his family.”

Mano shared Wuthrich’s email on his campaign Facebook page Monday, writing that “as an Asian American and a member of the LGTBQ community, I must stand up against hate speech and call it out when I see it.”

“There’s no room,” Mano added, “for hate in our city.”

An increase in hate crimes and violence against Asian Americans during the pandemic prompted U.S. lawmakers to pass legislation addressing the issue last month. In an interview, Mano acknowledged that nothing in the email specifically called him out as a person of color or member of the queer community.

“But I think the line that hit me the most,” Mano said, “was the ‘I hate your family,’ because there’s a photo in the materials I dropped off that shows my partner and our kids. … We’re a family that’s a little outside the typical for Utah.”

In his apology Tuesday, Wuthrich said he did not wish any harm to Mano, his family or his associates.

“No parent, spouse or child should be subjected to such emotional outbursts,” the assistant attorney general wrote. “I am deeply sorry.”

Wuthrich added that he wished Mano well in his campaign and said that he is “taking steps to examine my reaction” to the candidate’s canvassing.

Mano’s spokesperson said late Tuesday afternoon that Wuthrich has not reached out to the campaign.

Wuthrich’s initial email to Mano noted that he has a “no soliciting” sign on his door. Mano said he saw that sign.

“I’m kind of new to politics,” Mano said, “but all the political advisers have assured me that political canvassing is not soliciting.”

The councilman noted in his Facebook post that he has a “duty” to reach his constituents. And Mano wasn’t trying to contact Wuthrich, but another registered voter who lives at his address.

“The person we were trying to reach,” Mano said, “was either his wife or his roommate.”

Mano said he felt compelled to call out the hate-filled email because he specifically asked the Asian American community in a speech last month to not ignore such treatment.

“In my family, in a lot of Asian American families I’ve heard from, it’s our tendency to ignore things when they happen to us and not draw attention to ourselves,” Mano said. “But I believe we have to draw attention to hate to stop hate.”

City Council seats for Districts 1, 3, 5 and 7 are up for election this year. The District 2 seat is also up for election to fill the vacancy left by Andrew Johnston when Mendenhall appointed him to helm the city’s homelessness response earlier this year. The council selected Dennis Faris to fill that seat until Jan. 3, 2022.

After a day of canvassing and trying to reach my constituents in District 5, I came home to this hateful email. As an...

During the regular season, the Jazz, despite the 3-point reputation, also drove the ball into the paint quite frequently — 53.2 times per game, according to NBA tracking stats, or 4th in the NBA. Sometimes, that resulted in layups for Mike Conley, Donovan Mitchell, Jordan Clarkson, or Joe Ingles. But there are also indirect benefits of the drives, too: kick-out passes for the Jazz’s 3-point shooters, or lobs to Rudy Gobert.","type":"text","content":"In this series, though, they’re driving 10 times fewer per game: 43.6, if you’re curious about the exact number. Mitchell’s bum ankle, Conley’s absence, and the Clippers’ switching defense are all keeping the Jazz out of the paint.","type":"text","content":"It’s changed the Jazz’s shot chart, to be sure. Rather than the 25.8 pull-up shots per game that they took during the regular season, they’re now taking 33 pull-up shots during the Clippers series. Only Brooklyn has taken more pull-ups during the playoffs, but the Jazz don’t have talents like Kyrie Irving, James Harden, or Kevin Durant.","type":"text","content":"Pull-ups are typically considered harder shots than their catch-and-shoot equivalents. That being said, the Jazz have been making a lot of those pull-up shots against the Clippers. They’re shooting 44% on the pull-up threes, for example, an excellent percentage. Maybe an unsustainable one.","type":"text","content":"But not getting into the paint has made the Jazz’s offense reliant on those pull-up shots, which can wax and wane more than, say, Gobert lob finishes at the rim. And never was that more on display in Game 5 — after one of the hottest shooting performances the NBA has ever seen in the first half of the game, the Jazz then missed their next 16 3-pointers.","type":"text","content":"So, the question: how can the Jazz get into the paint more?","type":"text","content":"Step 1: take advantage of the defensive attention being paid to Mitchell.","type":"text","content":"“Whether it’s when they come trap him off the ball or in pick and roll, he’s been able to get off the ball,” Jazz head coach Quin Snyder said. “We have to attack in those situations.”","type":"text","content":"That was something that the Jazz did inconsistently in Game 5. Mitchell’s teammates — and especially Ingles and Royce O’Neale — were sometimes reluctant to attack the space afforded to them by their superstar teammates. Attacking can mean driving, but it can also just mean taking the open shots available.","type":"text","content":"“As much as anything, guys have to be really ready to shoot the ball. It may not be that the ball touched the paint if there’s an open look early,” Snyder said. “But ideally, if there isn’t, you know, we can make a quick decision and drive the ball.”","type":"text","content":"Without Mitchell on the court, the formula gets more complicated. That’s when transition play, or taking advantage of Jordan Clarkson’s isolation ability, becomes the Jazz’s No. 1 source of offense — Ingles’ pick-and-roll play is really nearly mostly eliminated against switches.","type":"text","content":"And then, of course, Mitchell can drive anyway sometimes. Even on one leg, even despite the help.","type":"text","content":"No matter what, Snyder says the Jazz need to stay “under control” when making these drives.

He does, and Ingles gets the open shot.","type":"text","type":"oembed_response","content":"Ingles missed — that’s how the NBA goes sometimes.
