Another posting from our intrepid journalist Stacy McCain on the Lying Felon Brett Kimberlin ;
FROM AN UNDISCLOSED LOCATION
While researching further background material, I happened upon a November 2011 post at DFQ2 in which Seth Allen discussed Brett Kimberlin’s ties to the left-wing news site Raw Story. Allen was particularly interested in Larisa Alexandrovna, a former Raw Story reporter who is an indefatiguable defender — or perhaps we should say, idolator — of Kimberlin.
In October 2006, a contributor to Democrat Underground discovered Kimberlin’s criminal past and wrote a post asking, “Is it smart to have our cause of election reform tied to a known, convicted bomber?” Alexandrovna posted 13 comments on that thread defending Kimberlin as having been wrongly convicted, secretly exonerated, etc.
What caught my eye in the DU thread, however, was not Alexandrovna’s defenses of Kimberlin, but rather the biography of himself Kimberlin had published — quoted in Comment #15 on the thread — while promoting his band, Epoxy:
Epoxy arose out of the hellish depths of Brett’s time in prison for exercising his First Amendment rights to speech and political activity. Without any trial, Brett was hauled off to federal prison after being targeted by right-wingers who wanted to punish him for being a musician, writing a book and speaking out about politics.
What a sociopathic liar he is.
His crimes were committed during the Carter presidency, and the prosecuting attorneys included John J. “Jack” Thar, who is still alive and well and practicing law in Indiana.
You could ask Jack Thar whether he is a “right-winger” who “targeted” Brett Kimberlin “for exercising his First Amendment rights.”
Kind of funny that Kimberlin is being outed by the same methods he and his associates use to smear their victims, using research on the internet. Back in the day, it might take a journalist weeks or months of research to bring a story to press. But with the advent of the Web, everything is out there for anyone who wants the information and the research can be done in a few hours or a couple of days.
Something I’ve known for years…if you put it out there, there’s no taking it back. Twitter, Facebook, blog posts or comments made on news articles become the property of whomever wants to make use of it.
Update; Like rats from a sinking ship, Lying Felon Brett Kimberlin’s friends are deserting him in droves;
In a previous item, I mentioned that former Raw Story reporter Larisa Alexandrovna is an “indefatiguable defender” of convicted terrorist Brett Kimberlin. Some other writers (not me) have suggested a closer relationship between Raw Story and Kimberlin. A week ago, Raw Story issued this official statement:
Raw Story was founded by John Byrne in 2004, and has only ever been owned by John Byrne (and minority-stake owner Mike Rogers, who joined in 2009). Roxanne Cooper became the publisher in October 2010, shortly before Ron Brynaert ended his tenure at the publication. Since March 2011, the editorial direction has been under the management of Megan Carpentier, who has complete editorial discretion separate from management.
Brett Kimberlin and Velvet Revolution are not now and never have been involved in the ownership, management or editorial direction of Raw Story. Neither Carpentier nor Cooper had ever heard of Kimberlin or Velvet Revolution prior to the start of the events described by Aaron Worthing, Mandy Nagy and Patrick Frey.
Just had to include that for the record.
