Bonus Prevarication Du Jour

Here’s another whopper from Xenophon at Breitbart Unmasked (No, I won’t link to it).BU20131223If The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin really has found a lawyer willing to represent him, that lawyer will be filing an appearance with the court, and that should appear on the docket. Soon. As of this evening, the online database for the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. lawsuit still shows Brett Kimberlin as pro se, that is, representing himself without counsel.

I suspect that Xenophon is simply lying. The post containing that statement is dated 23 December. That’s the same day that Brett Kimberlin filed his latest round of motions in the lawsuit, and they were filed pro se rather than through counsel. I’ll believe that TDPK has found a lawyer willing to risk his law license by signing on to the claims in Kimberlin’s Amended Complaint when I see his appearance in the case docket or see him show up in court.

OTOH, Xenphon’s “sources” may have told him that TDPK has a competent lawyer. If that’s the case, it may be time for a med check.

  1. Must be fun for the Dread Pirate’s cheerleaders to get home from work and spend their spare time making up fantasies about him.

    I bet cheerleading for notorious criminals is just the highlight of Xenophon’s day, and it’s so uplifting and exciting to him that he gets carried away about what’s truth and what’s imagination.

  2. This is a very odd claim, if you start thinking about it. It fails most tests of story logic. I’m typing on a phone, so details are not forthcoming, but a moment’s sober thought should bring objections clearly to mind.

    Never mind the law license issue! There are many story logic failures before we even get to that problem.

  3. The lying theory makes sense. Kimberlin’s whole strategy is to find someone willing to settle. Bluffing that he has obtained “a competent attorney” could be an attempt to make the case appear more costly and complex to litigate. It dovetails nicely with Rauhauer’s claims that those that don’t settle will find themselves going up against a plaintiff with a “warchest” derived from those that did.

    A nice way to neuter the last threat is to have the DeLong’s attach any judgment issued.
