Team Kimberlin has not had a good summer as far as PR is concerned. Cabin Boy Bill Schmalfeldt got a peace order slapped on him. Pedi Officer No-Class Gillette got outed as an ex-con who did federal time for kiddie porn and who seems to be an unregistered sex offender. The Dread Pirate Kimberlin’s family issues hit the courts and his wife has accused him of having sex with her while she was underage and not married causing the Dread Pirate title to morph into Dread Pedo. And those are just the highlights.
Last week, Team Kimberlin tried to use the Mother Jones story as a basis to spin up some kind of tale to distract from their bad publicity. But timing is everything. Tetyana Kimberlin’s charges against Brett overwhelmed the Groundswell.
It’s a real shame. They seem to have had a really good story cooked up about how Aaron Walker, Stacy McCain, and the rest of us are in the pay of some soooper seekrit conservative conspiracy to … what … get Brett Kimberlin. Oh, gimme a break. TDPK is a pain in the butt to a bunch of us bloggers and a blight on the First Amendment, but very few A-list folks even know who he is, let alone care. I see him as a common criminal who should be brought to justice.
It would have been great to be on someone’s payroll. Being retired has reduced my cash flow, and the only money I receive from blogging comes via my Tip Jar. Feel free to hit it.
