It’s been a bumpy ride for Team Kimberlin and some of us covering The Continuing Saga.
On Sunday, Tetyana Kimberlin filed for her own protective order against Brett Kimberlin. She also charged that he had sex with her while she was underage, what is commonly called statutory rape and is formally called sex offense in the third degree in Maryland. Also, Hogewash! published a picture of Brett taken at BlogBash.
On Monday, there was a hearing in District Court for Brett’s petition for a protective order. His temporary order was extended to allow time for a report from Child Protective Services. Brett then took to Twitter using his @BreitbartUnmask account to post a copy of a bogus travel document he had obtained for Tetyana that “proved” she was 18 when they married. Within minutes, references to documents he had submitted with her correct date of birth were being posted on the Internet.
On Tuesday, there was a hearing in District Court for Tetyana’s petition for a protective order. It was granted and both protective order cases were combined with her child custody petition in Circuit Court. During the hearing, Brett tried to involve Aaron Walker in the case. The case was assigned to the same Circuit Court judge who heard Kimberlin v. Allen and who awarded Brett only $100 rather than the $2+ million he sought, explaining that the award was based solely on Allen’s default. That probably isn’t good news for Brett. Brett violated the protective order as Tetyana was leaving the courtroom by having a JTMP employee named Craig Gillette accost her in the hall. Finally, Brett tried to counterpunch by charging Aaron Walker and me with harassing him. The charges are rubbish, and he has bought himself even more trouble by filing them.
Wednesday was Craig Gillette’s day. Working together with Stacy McCain, members of the Vast Hogewash Research Organization uncovered evidence of Gillette’s criminal record. The Other McCain broke the news of Gillette’s federal prison sentence for possession of child pornography, and this blog followed up minutes later with court documents and a report of Gillette’s absence from the Sex Offender Registry. McCain has his follow ups here and here.
Through the whole week, Bill Schmalfeldt has continued his campaign to further beclown himself on copyright issues. The Cabin Boy has stated his distaste for pedophiles, but has not yet (as I’m writing this) come out against child porn. Given his own publication of homoerotic porn that he admits is obscene, his refusal to comment on child porn … Oh, never mind. I just checked before hitting the Publish button to see what Schmalfeldt might be tweeting. He’s still supporting The Dread Pedo Kimberlin.
Those are just a few highlights for the week. We were told by Team Kimberlin to expect big news on Monday. They thought the week would be about their Groundswell meme. It’s been more of a sinkhole thus far. And it is only Thursday. I think most of today’s action will be behind the scenes.
UPDATE—It didn’t take long for the Cabin Boy to begin touting the nolle prossing of his latest harassment charge by the Howard County State’s Attorney’s Office. The decision was taken over 10 days ago, so I didn’t include it in a summary of this week so far.
Now, the Gentle Reader may wonder how I knew about the State’s Attorney’s decision well before Bill Schmalfeldt. The answer boils down to actually doing journalism rather than claiming to be a journalist. It’s the same method by which I know which other governmental agencies are still investigating the matter that the HoCo SA dropped. For now.
The fat lady has not yet sung. She’s just starting to warm up.
