Susan Polgar: Board Members Misrepresented Facts

While her sister Judit is busily making news where it matters, Susan, on the other hand, is in the middle of some ugly chess politics. Here she is responding to that NY Times article:

This is a blatant misrepresentation of the facts. Answers and evidence were submitted to the USCF attorney. I was on the phone with the USCF attorney for a considerable length of time to discuss this matter and to answer his questions. If additional information was needed, we should have been asked. No one asked. I have an email from the USCF attorney confirming that he received the evidence. We were under the impression that everything was fine until last night after the statement has already been submitted to the NY Times. I can clearly document the time line step by step.

A whole thread can be found on Susan's Chess Discussion Forums.
