Is Overstock Behind Hedge Fund Testimony?

Thursday, June 29, 2006 | 11:30 AM

Remind me never to piss off Herb Greenberg:

"Herb Greenberg, in his blog on, raises an eyebrow about the testimony delivered at today's Senate hedge-fund hearing by Demetrios Anifantis, a former employee of Gradient Analytics. "How independent is Anifantis? Did he write and/or edit his own testimony? If not, who did? For a clue, look no further than a copy of the transcript he provided to the Senate Judiciary Committee," he wrote. (The testimony can be see here (45K Word file). "Scroll down the 'file' menu at the top of the Word document to 'properties.' Click on 'summary.' It says the author of the report is 'mgriffin.' Company: 'Overstock.' Who is 'mgriffin'? Hard to say, for sure, but one attorney representing Overstock is Mark Griffin, the former director of the Utah Securities division. Why is 'mgriffin' of 'Overstock' named as author of the report?"
