Muckety this! Sandra Day O’Connor to the Winklevoss twins

We’re not positive, but we doubt that the retired Supreme Court justice is a big investor in bitcoins.

We had to find a more circuitous route to connect Sandra Day O’Connor to Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss.

O’Connor, in the news lately because of her new book, “Out of Order,” attended the 2006 wedding of lawyer Ted Olson.

You remember him. He’s the former U.S. solicitor general who represented George W. Bush in Bush vs. Gore. He has also argued dozens of cases before the Supreme Court. The most recent, in which he opposed Prop 8, the California measure striking down same-sex marriage, came as a surprise to many of his conservative pals.

Olson also represented oilman Armand Hammer, who pleaded guilty to laundering $54,000 in illegal donations to Richard Nixon’s re-election. Olson was a member of the legal team that succeeded in obtaining a pardon for Hammer from President George H.W. Bush.

Hammer’s great-grandson, Armie Hammer, played Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss twins in the Facebook movie, “The Social Network.”

The identical twins, having settled their claims that Mark Zuckerberg stole their idea for what ultimately became Facebook, are now among the largest investors in the digital money known as bitcoin.
