Chris Detrick | The Salt Lake Tribune Tim DeChristopher works at Ken Sanders Rare Books Tuesday April 23, 2013. DeChristopher was released just Sunday from his 21-month term for fraudulently bidding on public land leases at a 2008 Bureau of Land Management oil and gas auction. He had hoped to prevent drilling on sensitive land.
Utah activist Tim DeChristopher is scheduled to be a guest on the Late Show with David Letterman (10:35 p.m., CBS/Ch. 2).
DeChristopher is the subject of the documentary "Bidder 70," which recounts how he bid in a BLM oil and gas lease auction to prevent oil and gas companies from getting access to the land. He eventually spent almost two years in prison after being convicted of crimes related to his fraudulent bids.
I'm guessing Letterman will be on DeChristopher's side.
