Prevarication Du Jour

I have all sorts of interesting things posted at Today, someone tweeted a link to the charging documents in the recent Maryland v. Kimberlin case. There is a notation in the complaint’s handwriting at the end of the Application for Statement of Charges, and, of course, the Cabin Boy had to offer a comment.ftrrnews201310102213Z

Aaron Walker’s handwriting? No way; the addendum is legible.

Here’s a sample of Aaron Walker’s writing from an Application for Statement of Charges he filed in 2012—AWhandwrittingHere’s a sample of the writing on the 2013 Application for Statement of Charges—TKhandwritting

Note, among other differences, the almost random slant to the letters in the first sample and the even forward slant in the second. No, the writing on the two Applications is by two different people.

  1. In the legal world of Bill Schmalfeldt his accusation is nothing less than a deliberate, willful violation of the Americans with Disability Act. Inasmuch as Bill Schmalfeldt has been relentlessly cyberstalking Aaron Walker [and John Hoge, Lee Stranahan and others] for over a year, he is fully aware of the fact that Aaron has a learning disability [covered by the ADA] that results in him having extremely difficulty in printing words, let alone writing cursively. Due to his disability, Aaron Walker could not have possibly written that note and Bill Schmalfeldt knows that fact.

    That leads to obvious question why did Bill Schmalfeldt lie about who authored that note? One possibility is that Schmalfeldt lied so as to in his mind strengthen the lawsuit against Walker. He could be trying to imply that Aaron Walker masterminded the complaint by claiming, “See he even actually physically wrote some of the complaint himself!” That explanation fails when you note that such accusations have to be plausible to have any effect. Since the accusation Aaron wrote that line is trivially refuted it naturally raises the question as to what other “evidence” has Team Kimberlin been willing to falsify? Surely, Bill Schmalfeldt didn’t offer that charge in a willful attempt to hurt Brett Kimberlin’s case. The obvious answer then is that Bill Schmalfeldt made the false accusation knowing fully well that would cause his critics to point out Aaron’s disability as a complete defense. Apparently, Bill Schmalfeldt thinks it will harm Aaron Walker to have folks know that he has a learning disability [thought the rational response is to commend Aaron for graduating law school and passing his bars despite having a disability. While Aaron’s hands may fail him his mind is quite sharp.] Such personal attacks based on disability have a chilling effect on persons with disabilities speaking out. In his own mind, based on his court pleading, Bill Schmalfeldt thinks such attacks are a violation of the ADA. He needs to be called out.
