I can't figure out which is the bigger fraud, taking 500k in investments from fellow ward members or writing about the transfiguration of Brigham as non-fiction.

Note the difference between the standard examiner article and this ksl article. KSL won't talk about the man being a former stake president.

I would bet my paycheck that the KSL reporters have been told not to report that bad people are in certain leadership positions.
The funny thing is the title and article talked about someone using their position in the church to swindle money. Well...obviously they were in some leadership position.
