Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin has apparently had the record of the third degree sexual offense charges filed by his wife and that were nolle prossed by the Montgomery State’s Attorney’s Office and which the court sealed or expunged. However, before that happened, I obtained a certified copy of the charging document from the court and published it. While it can’t be used in court, it is still available on the Internet. That was straightforward reporting of a crime story. TDPK tried to spin that truthful reporting into defamation as part of his Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. nuisance lawsuit.

MR. KIMBERLIN: After those charges were nolle pros, did you take a trip down to this courthouse and get a certified copy of those charges, and post them on your Scribd account?

MR. HOGE: No. Not this courthouse. They’re not kept here.

MR. KIMBERLIN: Well, whatever courthouse?

MR. HOGE: Across the street. District Court —

MR. KIMBERLIN: But — so the charges are dismissed, you come down and get a certified copy, and post them on Scribd.

MR. HOGE: Yes.

MR. KIMBERLIN: And are those charges — do you know whether those charges were not only nolle pros, but expunged and sealed by the court?

MR. HOGE: The charges are not on the Maryland Judiciary Case Search right now, so I can’t tell you what the court may have done with them.

MR. KIMBERLIN: Well —

MR. HOGE: I can’t tell you what the court did.

It wasn’t very smart of TDPK to bring up those charges. A prosecutor entering a nolle prosequi on a charge does not mean that the accused is innocent. Here’s how, first, Judge Johnson, and, second, Stacy McCain, explained nolle prosequi at various points during the trial.

The objection was sustained to that question. How is it relevant if the State entered a nolle prosequi? All that means is that the State elected not to go forward. It doesn’t mean anything to do with the substance of the charges.

Nolle pros does not mean you were falsely accused. I’ve had traffic tickets that were nolle pros. That didn’t mean I wasn’t going 85 miles an hour.

However, it did bring up the question of why, if they were bogus charges, wasn’t his wife in court to support him by testifying that we had suborned perjury and that he had not had sex with her when she was 15—was he innocent, or did he simply get away with something? That was not a good question for him to plant in the minds of the jurors.

I’m Not Making This Up, You Know


A former aide to Senator Chuck Schumer who is now working for the Justice Department call what he thought were members of Congressman Elijah Cummings staff to ask them to leak information to support administration spin of the IRS debacle. Imagine the fun that ensued when it turned out that had really dialed the staff of oversight committee chairman, Congressman Darrell Issa.

In a letter to Attorney General Holder, Issa said he is “disturbed” by the “apparently longstanding collaboration between the Obama administration and Ranking Member Cummings’ staff to obfuscate and prejudice the Committee’s work through under-the-table coordination.”
