Sam Antar posted this on his blog today regarding Mark Shurtleff’s letter about Sam. He says he just received notification from blogger.com TODAY that there was a comment waiting for approval by him. I reiterate my earlier concern: Why didn’t Shurtleff contact him directly via phone or email?
Blog Update Note (11/15/07): I received the following request from Utah Attorney General Mark Shurtleff to post a comment on my blog today. In a letter addressed to “to whom it may concern,” dated November 8, 2007, written by Mark Shurtleff, Utah Attorney General, and released by Overstock.com through a press release on November 14, 2007, he claimed:
I tried to post this letter as a comment on Mr. Antar’s blog but Mr. Antar apparently refused to post it.
However, I just received Mr. Shurtleff’s comment today and posted it. Please note the date and time of the email.
I will respond to Mark Shurlteff soon. In the mean time, keep speculating.
