Questions Abound in Wyoming Gay Marriage Lawsuit
On Tuesday of last week, we were the first to report that we had uncovered suspect information and then proceeded to report the facts regarding the Lawsuit brought by the Gay Couple in Wyoming.

The lawsuit, filed Aug. 13 by David Shupe-Roderick, 25, and Ryan W. Dupree, 21, is the first legal challenge in recent memory to Wyoming’s law defining marriage as being a contract solely "between a male and a female person." The couple, who are representing themselves, filed the lawsuit after the Laramie County Clerk's Office refused three times to issue them a marriage license. That’s unequal treatment, they said, and they're asking U.S. District Judge Alan B. Johnson to stop the state from enforcing any laws that block gays and lesbians from access to civil marriage. "We determined that a lawsuit was the only possible way for them to get to recognize us as people," Shupe-Roderick said. "I think it's time that Wyoming lives up to its title. You know they call themselves the Equality State? Well, they're not so equal."

Lezgetreal investigated further and found that all was not as it seemed. We reported that the Plaintiff Shupe had in fact been involved in prior law suits that were circumspect and revealed some startling details. Now more has come to light.
