One of the tactical errors that The
Dread Deadbeat Kimberlin committed in the early stages of his lawfare was filing his LOLsuits in Maryland. That state had a prohibition on testimony by perjurers, and TDPK had a perjury conviction on his rap sheet. After my lawyer used that statute to keep Kimberlin from testifying, the whining began. This Prevarication Du Jour from four years ago dealt with how Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Brett Unread lied about Kimberlin’s legal disability.

As I mentioned yesterday, Xenophon (the Troll) keeps writing hallucinatory fiction about Brett Kimberlin’s lawsuits and the facts surrounding them over at Breitbart Unmasked (No, I won’t link to it.). For example,
Actually, I was the first person to use Maryland’s law prohibiting a convicted perjurer from offering testimony to stop The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin from testifying. That disability has been on the books in Maryland for around 150 years, and when a local prosecutor pointed it out to me, I made sure that my lawyer was aware of TDPK’s status.
Since that trial, Kimberlin has gone on record admitting his perjury conviction, and he’s tried to argue that it violates his rights. However, the law is settled on the matter. Perjurers may not testify in Maryland courts. Period. BTW, Maryland is not the only state with that rule.
In the current Maryland lawsuit, TDPK is the plaintiff, and Aaron Walker is one of the defendants. Mr. Walker’s raising of the issue does not “prevent Kimberlin from being able to defend himself in court.” Rather, it prevents him from using his own testimony to attack Mr. Walker in the frivolous and vexatious Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. suit.
(You can help Aaron Walker, Stacy McCain, Ali Akbar, Kimberlin Unmasked, and me defend ourselves in that lawsuit. Go to Bomber Sues Bloggers to find out how.) [That link is now dead. Thank you to everyone who donated via that site to help with the expenses of our defense.-wjjh]
Perhaps this reveals the real reason for the federal RICO lawsuit. TDPK may be venue shopping to find a place where he can testify. But why would that be important? Certainly, if his case were righteous, there would be documentary support for it. After all, it’s mostly about what people have written. And surely, there would be someone who could offer testimony on his behalf.
Unless, of course, the written evidence doesn’t support his allegations, and he can’t find anyone willing to lie for him.

Maryland was the last state to repeal the prohibition on testimony by perjurers. The bill was introduced by the state senator representing the district in which Kimberlin lives, and the repeal should probably be referred to as “Brett’s Law.” Tactically, the repeal came at an inopportune time for Kimberlin because it allowed persons suing him to put him on the stand as a witness—something that did not help his credibility.
Lying liars gotta lie.
