Has Brett Kimberlin Sued Fox News Yet?

This (H/T Ace) extensive 2010 piece is a pretty solid primer on him:

Leftist Blogger’s Criminal Past Raises Questions About His Real Intent

Even before his release from prison 10 years ago, Brett Kimberlin had learned a lesson that has served him well: If you publicly accuse a well-known political figure of crimes or misdeeds — even without proof — publicity and money will follow.

Kimberlin, a convicted bomber and drug dealer, learned that lesson in 1988, when he claimed from his prison cell that he had been Dan Quayle’s marijuana dealer in college. The claim got a lot of attention because Quayle was running for vice president of the United States at the time.

Now, 22 years later, Kimberlin has taken that lesson and made unfounded accusations a profession of sorts. Using two popular leftist blogs, the 56-year-old from Bethesda, Md., has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars from the public and left-leaning foundations by promising to put conservatives he disagrees with in jail, often with offers of large rewards. So far — without success — he has called for the arrest of Karl Rove, Andrew Breitbart, Chamber of Commerce head Tom Donohue, Massey Energy Chairman Don Blankenship and other high-profile public figures.

A review of tax filings for Kimberlin’s blogs, “Velvet Revolution” and “Justice Through Music,” raises troubling questions about whether his “nonprofit” operations are dedicated to public activism — or are just a new facade for a longtime con artist.

It rolls through his murderous rampage in Speedway, the drug-dealing, and up into recent times, ending on a curious note I wasn’t aware of yet…

…But that action by prison officials gave Kimberlin’s story credence, and he declared himself a political prisoner — a claim that attracted Mark Singer, a writer from The New Yorker magazine, who thought it would make for a great story. After Singer ran a long sympathetic piece in 1992, he got a book contract to write about the fate of an American political prisoner. The two split a large cash advance from the publisher and began to work together.

In the process, Singer discovered that Kimberlin was far from a hero. In fact, he realized, the man who had gotten the attention of the nation was a liar and a con man, and he ended up writing a story of how he had been taken in by a “narcissist.” Kimberlin, for his part, who had been released on parole after 14 years in prison, was sent back to jail for a parole violation. The charge was hiding the money from his advance to prevent the widow of the woman whose husband he maimed from collecting on the bombing victim widow’s civil judgment.

And it is that civil judgment that may explain Kimberlin’s blog sites and much of his existence since prison.

Because of the judgment, which with interest is now more than $3 million, anything Kimberlin has in his own name is subject to seizure. He lives in his mother’s home in Bethesda and operates the websites out of there.

It’s hardly a happy place, though; Kimberlin’s mother has sued him and won a $150,000 judgment against him, and he and his wife have traded domestic abuse charges, according to local records. It even may explain the causes of the moment on which the websites focus their energy, likely to generate cash.

“Hardly a happy place”? ARE YOU KIDDING ME?

The fucking ball less, terrorizing little weasel is living in his mommy’s basement? Does he still?!?

    Living in Momma’s basement? That explains a lot about this monster.

    One commenter over at The Other McCain noted that Kimberlin is short — less than 5′-6″ — and suggested there may be something of a Napoleon complex as well.

  2. Gunslinger says:

    Brett Kimberlin would make a great subject for cosmetics testing.

  3. aelfheld says:

    Which is worse, that Momma still lets him live in her house or that any woman would marry him?

  4. JeffS says:

    Be grateful, aelfheld, that the creature hasn’t spawned.
