Phone Number Could Tie Colorado Woman to Calls Sparking Raid of Polygamist Sect

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — "A phone number used to allege child abuse at a Texas polygamist retreat had been used before by a Colorado woman, who's accused of making several false abuse claims in an unrelated case, according to an affidavit made public Wednesday.

Rozita Swinton, 33, of Colorado Springs, had used the number before it was used to place a call to a crisis center in Texas, the arrest warrant affidavit said. The call came before authorities raided the Eldorado retreat and removed more than 400 children this month, but it was not clear whether authorities suspect Swinton made any of the calls that triggered the raid.

Swinton's whereabouts were unknown and she did not immediately return a phone message."

Phony 911 call or not, how dumb can these polygamist people be?

If they were gay or lesbian polygamists everything would be cool, because alternate lifestyle folks have convinced much of the country that what goes on behind closed doors is nobody's business, no matter how disgusting it might seem to normal humankind.

But not when it comes to straight folks. And all they had to do was to hang up signs directing other would be polygamists to Fundamental Texas Fruits, Inc. and the cops would never have dared to bust the show.
