Subject: Death Threats, Mocking My Recently Deceased Wife

Dear Sheriff DeWess, et al:

I have copied Mr. William John Joseph Hoge III of 20 Ridge Road, Westminster, in this communication.

He is allowing his blog, Hogewash.com <[redacted]hogewash.com/>, to be used as a vehicle to threaten me and to defame my wife.

The love of my life, Gail Maureen Schmalfeldt, died on June 17. She had sudden acute kidney failure. Hoge is letting his readers mock my grief and post pictures of my wife, in addition to making thinly veiled death threats.

I have never publicized this photo, so if I see it on anyone’s blog I will know Hoge is responsible.

This was taken June 2 while Gail was in Howard County Memorial Hospital.We brought her home from the hospital for home hospice care three weeks ago today. As I said, she died June 17.

Hoge’s readers have delighted in tormenting me, on his blog and on my Twitter account, about the death of my wife of 25 years.

That is a small photo. Here is the entire avatar.

It was stolen from this picture.

Hoge says he has no control over the avatars his readers use. That isnonsense. Hoge could tell Jeanette Runyon (“Grace”) that her comments will not be posted on the blog until she changes her avatar. And she is not the only one to post foul images re: my wife.

And then, to top it off, I receive these in my Twitter timeline from “Grace”.

[@truckstopdolly tweet redacted]

Captive Nurse is a reference to my wife being my caregiver when she was well.
The name, “Truck Stop Dolly” refers to the filthy lie they tell each other about my wife being a truck stop prostitute.

As the moderator of his blog, Hoge has the ultimate authority over everything he chooses to post on his blog. If he tells someone, “Change your avatar, and I’ll let you post again,” it is done. By not doing anything to rein in the people mocking my wife’s death, Hoge is encouraging it.

I would ask the Carroll County Sheriff’s Office to have a little chat with Mr. Hoge about the anguish of the loss of a spouse. And explain the laws of harassment in the state of Maryland while you’re at it.

Mr. Hoge continues to harass me in court. With Gail being gone, I have no reason to stay in Maryland, so I intend to move back to the Midwest where Hoge can no longer harass me with his false charges, forged documents and trumped up peace orders based on lies.

Thank you.

Subject: Death Threats, Mocking My Recently Deceased Wife

The disturbing photo of my wife in the hospital has made its way to the hands of Patrick Grady of Palatine, IL, a defendant in my Federal Lawsuit, who is threatening to publish it if I do not behave myself.  He described it perfectly, but he hasn’t published it yet. Would someone have a chat with Mr. Hoge and ask him why he would do such a thing as send this photo to be used as blackmail, not just distressing to myself, but to everyone in my wife’s family?

Are these human beings?

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


I’m told the Cabin Boy made a big production on his Blog Talk Radio show today of not announcing his decision as to whether or not to show up for the peace order appeal hearing on Thursday. Either he will or he won’t. Whether he does or not, I will still have to present evidence of his harassment to the court. I’m prepared to present the same case that convinced Judge Clark that a peace order was justified. She didn’t grant the order because of her understanding of the venue issue. I will also supplement my original case with admissions that the Cabin Boy made before Judge Clark.

popcorn4bkDuring the District Court hearing, Judge Clark remarked to the Cabin Boy that she understood why someone would never want to hear from him again. If he shows up and if his demeanor is similar to what he displayed in the District Court, he’ll do a lot to help me make my case. We’ll see if he bothers to come.

Stay tuned.
