Another chapter in Shurtleff’s book peddling: The deal that fell through

Scandal » Publisher says A.G. donor had agreed to buy 100,000 copies, but backed out.

Jenson said while Shurt­leff was at the villa, the attorney general asked him to buy $250,000 worth of the book — for which Shurtleff would receive royalties — and assured Jenson he never had to take delivery of the copies. Jenson said he declined the deal.

Salima said there were no other large buyers of Shurt­leff’s book and nobody ever suggested that the books would not be delivered to Pre-Paid Legal. She said the company planned to distribute them to its marketing representatives.

Shurtleff also pitched his book during a 2009 appearance before The Green Tea Co., a Lehi-based multilevel-marketing operation recently fined by the state.
