Yesterday, I explained the origin of the title The Dread Pirate Kimberlin. Here’s a repost of the original listing of his crew from last November—Brett Kimberlin’s Ship of Fools. Note that the relative importance of some characters has changed.
The Dread Pirate Kimberlin—(AKA Brett Kimberlin, The Speedway Bomber, John Doe 1, Breitbart Unmasked) A Director of and sole full-time employee of Justice Through Music Project and unpaid employee of Velvet Revolution US. Convicted felon with a rap sheet too long for this space. Apparently not a registered voter. [A correction about Kimberlin’s status as a registered voter was published after he doxed himself in a court filing and I was able to determine his date of birth. I regret the original error.]
First Mate Neal Rauhauser—Tragically-failed wind-powered ammonia plant entrepreneur. Hacker wannabe. Democratic Party operative. Deadbeat dad. [And he may already be a Weiner.]
Crew Member Ron Brynaert—Erstwhile reporter. Possible SWATting suspect. Potential mutineer.
Cabin Boy Bill Schmalfeldt—(AKA Liberal Grouch) Minor, if somewhat grandiose, Twitter troll and selective blogger of sealed court papers. [Recently promoted to major nuisance.]
Imaginary Friend Occupy Rebellion—(AKA Sheridan) Twitter sock puppet.
Jeffrey R. Cohen, Esq.—Intellectual property lawyer and Executive Director of JTMP and VRUS. His signature is on their IRS Form 990s.
Brad Friedman—A Director of Velvet Revolution US.
Myra Lowenthal, CPA—Accountant who prepared the IRS Form 990s for JTMP and VRUS.
Assorted fanboys, wannabes, third- and fourth-rate musicians, trolls, useful idiots, and fools.
