(KSL News) -- A strange twist today in the on-going saga of Nancy Workman as the Salt Lake County Mayor walked out in the middle of an interview on public radio station KUER.
Workman, a Republican, was being interviewed by RadioWest host Doug Fabrizio. He asked about felony charges recommended by a bi-partisan panel of local prosecutors.
Workman suggested they, including the Republican Utah County prosecutor, were beholden to Democratic Salt Lake DA David Yocom.
Nancy Workman: "So it was not as independent as it appeared."
Doug Fabrizio: "Kay Bryson, a Republican, then was beholden to a Democrat."
Nancy Workman: "Signed an oath to Salt Lake County."
Doug Fabrizio: "Doesn't seem plausible Mayor, does it? He may have signed an oath, but you really don't respect Kay Bryson's independence or integrity? Forget the technicality for a moment..."
Workman: "Oh my goodness. Hey, if you're gonna talk like that..."
Fabrizio: "Talk like what?"
Workman: "See you later Doug. Thank you very much."
Callers mostly were not sympathetic to the mayor, though a couple thought Fabrizio had pushed her too far.
A few hours after Workman walked out on the radio show, her campaign faxed out a statement accusing the host of being partisan, saying "Mr. Fabrizio was not conducting a balanced and constructive interview, but was out to press his own agenda through hostile questioning."
