JB from the North Burbs writes me,
There has been an edit battle going on Wikipedia on the Jan Schakowsky case.Reminds me of the Soviet history books when they would have to periodically rewrite history.
A few people, myself included, have seen to posting information about the progress of the Creamer trial and conviction. A few other people have been removing any mention of Bob Creamer and his trial from Schakowsky's biography. It is quite interesting; I do not know how it will play out, but there will probably be a lock on her biography so that it does not become a political sandbox.
JB also notes the webpage for the US District Court has little on Creamer's case but features Ryan on the front page. JB says,
I called the webmaster for the District Court. He told me that because they get a lot of requests for information, he posts it directly the website. I asked him if he was posting information about the Creamer trial, to which he replied "Who is that?", prompting me to mention that if he put Creamer on his opening page, he might get more requests for information about that case as well.I think some emails to the webmaster are due.
Updates: The webmaster responds,
That decision is up to the presiding judge.
