Curious1, your theory is not the work of an active imagination. In fact, this is very true in many aspects of polygamy in Utah. Especially in the Kingston Clan. They send the boys to law school. They have a huge financial empire. It's hard to drive down the street here and not see their businesses. They own a worldwide trash collection company for starters. Waste Management got caught up in the Mafia contract scandal in NYC a few years back. Gives the term "Mormon Mafia" an interesting meaning. Their financial empire is so huge no one can accurately calculate how much the Kingston Clan is worth. So while polygamists may not openly hold office on the State level. I'm sure they contribute to the right candidates running for office.
