SALT LAKE CITY -- Attorney General Mark Shurtleff accidently informed the media he is scheduled for knee replacement surgery this week.
Ryan Bruckman, Shurtleff's deputy communications director, emailed Shurtleff's weekly schedule at 11:29 a.m. Tuesday.
At 12:05 p.m., Shurtleff replied, "I'm now scheduled for surgery tomorrow and out the rest of week, but it's OK if we don't say anything about that. Want to just leave it like this?" Then, 30 minutes later, Shurtleff sent out another email that said, "Oops. You all know of my surgery. Paul Murphy suggests that I also have the doctor examine my 'Reply all' thumb."
