A historic case, with ramifications that could shake the foundations of this country,  let’s see, why would the SCOTUS blog not be interested?

From the SCOTUS Blog.

“SCOTUSblog is devoted to comprehensively covering the U.S. Supreme Court—without bias and according to the highest journalistic and legal ethical standards.  The blog is provided as a public service and is sponsored by Akin, Gump, Strauss, Hauer & Feld, LLP.”

Well, you know, sometimes us pesky folks over at Citizen Wells get a little curious. And, well, I just had to know why such an important case such as this wasn’t worth mentioning. So I did a search on Akin Gump Obama contributions and discovered that these folks are real generous with their money. Akin Gump. You know, “Life is like a box of chocolates.”
