The whistleblowers have 4 states backing them, so that's why it's now getting headline news again in the NYT and the Wall Street Journal.
Here's what is important, and something I mentioned in the body of the article:
The board of directors for the Pittsburgh-based company includes John R. McKernan, Jr. MrKernan was the 71st governor of Maine, and was also a member of the U.S. House of Representatives. He is married to Senator Olympia Snowe (R-ME). Between 2005 and 2010, Snowe received $13,500 in campaign donations from Goldman Sachs.
Lewin chose to put this information in the very last paragraph.
