Former Sports WGNU-A (CBS SPORTS RADIO 920)/ST. LOUIS host and major league slugger JACK CLARK has responded to LOS ANGELES ANGELS star ALBERT PUJOLS' defamation lawsuit over CLARK's allegations that PUJOLS used performance-enhancing drugs by challenging PUJOLS to a lie-detector test, but PUJOLS' attorney has rejected the offer as an "absurd publicity ploy."
The ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH reports that AL WATKINS, an attorney for CLARK, who was fired in AUGUST from his hosting job after alleging that PUJOLS' former trainer told him that PUJOLS was "a juicer" (an allegation the former trainer, CHRIS MIHLFELD, has denied), sent a letter to PUJOLS' attorneys offering that CLARK would take a polygraph test if PUJOLS would do the same. MARTIN SINGER, representing PUJOLS, responded, "Sworn testimony under penalty of perjury -- not inadmissible polygraphs and absurd publicity ploys -- is what counts."
PUJOLS filed suit agains CLARK on OCTOBER 4th. CLARK and co-host KEVIN SLATEN were fired by INSIDESTL.COM, which programs WGNU, for CLARK's comments (NET NEWS 8/12).
