Assembly Clerk Takes the Stand

This afternoon, the state continues to methodically lay out its case against Rep. Scott Jensen and former legislative aide Sherry Schultz.

Assembly Chief Clerk Patrick Fuller took the stand at 1:20 p.m., and testifed that the state Assembly paid the rent for the Assembly Republican Caucus office across the street from the Capitol, and all the equipment used in the office was state-owned.

DA Brian Blanchard also asked about the hiring process for legislative staff. Fuller said each legislator is responsible for hiring his or her own staff.

But Fuller said he never heard of state resources going to RACC, or that service at RACC was used as a stipulation of state employment.

Blanchard also had Fuller confirm the employment of many former ARC and legislative staffers, contemporaries of Jensen and Schultz. Many will be called by the prosecution in coming days.
