Somehow I missed this comment on the Utah Amicus. The original post was a response to AG Mark Shurtleff's defense of his pay-day loan/Bahama's vacation funders. Sam E. Antar left this information in the comments:
Recently Utah Attorney General Mark Shurtleff colluded with a campaign contributor Overstock.com and its CEO Patrick Byrne to defame me.Sam's blog itself is an interesting read, but I would definitely like to know what he knows that we don't about our politicized Attorney General.
Overstock.com is under investigation by the Securities and Exchange Commission and Patrick Byrne is the admitted target of the SEC probe.
My blog has detailed many accounting irregularities, false and misleading statements, and violations of law by Overstock.com and Patrick Byrne.
I suggest that that you read the following posts on my blog with regards to Utah Attorney General Mark Shurtleff:
Utah Attorney General Mark Shurtleff Panders to Campaign Contributor Overstock.com & CEO Patrick Byrne and Defames Critic
Utah Attorney General Mark Shurtleff Caught Lying on Behalf of Overstock.com and Patrick Byrne (Note: Listen to the taped conversation with Richard Hamp and I have other taped conversations with Kirk Torgensen and Hamp not yet published)
Open Letter to Utah Attorney General Mark Shurtleff Re: Your lies on behalf of campaign contributor Overstock.com
As I wrote in my blog:
“Utah Attorney General Mark Shurtleff's deliberate efforts to defame me on behalf of Overstock.com and its CEO Patrick Byrne have placed a dark cloud on his ethics and integrity as the chief legal officer of the state of Utah…. A legitimate question can be raised as to whether the Chief Legal Officer of the state of Utah by publicly taking the side of Overstock.com after taking their campaign contributions has become a facilitator of the company and has involved himself in the commission of a securities fraud.”
