A favorite local blogger received a very disturbing email. He's not the first to be threatened like this. The title of the email was "I see everything" and the text read: "Watch for the subpoena coming soon". It was sent from mark@utahpolicy.com Mark Towner has threatened at least one other blogger with legal action in an attempt to silence them. The first threat was to a blogger commenting on the sham lawsuit Towner filed to keep a U.S. Senate candidate from speaking at the convention. This most recent threat was over participation in a bi- partisan group blog called UTOPOLY. One of the several participants was Mark Towner's political enemy, so he apparently saw fit to scare away the other participants through threat of legal action.

Are you sure this isn't a reality show? I can entitle it now: "Republicans Gone Wild!"

As I recall, I have actually seen "Republicans Gone Wild" before. It isn't as fun as the commercials suggest. See for yourself: http://www.danishgrove.com/rcip

Really Mark, how low can you go?

Did you threaten Rob Miller? Out of anybody in the Utah blogosphere, Rob is the last person who deserves to be threatened.

How do you sleep at night?

Bring it on I say. Stupid cowards! Let's hide behind the oh-so ominous "legal system" to stop free speech. Just one more step in the pussification of America.
