Operator of McAlester Web site plans to ignore subpoena

McALESTER, Okla. (AP) - A McAlester man who operates an online message board says he'll not comply with a subpoena ordering him to provide the names of people who've written critical posts about
local officials.

Harold King says the subpoena orders him to provide the names of 35 bloggers by Saturday.

King says he's researched the bloggers and found one thing in common - all had posted critical comments about Pittsburg County District Attorney Jim Miller.

Miller says he can't comment on any investigation or even confirm that one is under way.

King's Web site focuses on McAlester politics especially matters related to former state Senator Gene Stipe.
