AG Shurtleff Defames Critic of Patrick Byrne

I don't know if Patrick Byrne, CEO of Overstock.com who called Utahns Stupid, which he then retracted to say they are crazy, and who is under investigation by the Security and Exchange Commission, is exactly the person you'd want to be defending if you are running for reelection in 2008.

As it turns out, defending Patrick Byrne is exactly what Utah AG Mark Shurtleff is doing. And, he's defaming a critic of Byrne in the process.

My response:

Utah Attorney General Shurtleff's letter was dated November 8, 2008, after next year’s election.

Therefore, either Utah Attorney General Shurtleff intended it to be released after next year’s election (which I doubt) or a letter that is not proof read is the best that campaign contributor Overstock.com can expect as a favor from Mark Shurtleff.
