Perhaps Bill Schmalfeldt really has Parkinson’s disease and, as he told Judge Grimm, suffers from dementia. That would be a reasonable explanation for his poor judgment in his selection of things to post on the Interwebz and his poor memory of what he has posted. Consider the Prevarication Du Jour from four years ago today.

A few hours ago, I noted that Breitbart Unmasked posted photographs of Mr. and Mrs. Aaron Walker taken by Brett Kimberlin while he was stalking the Walkers at the Howard County District Courthouse on 1 March, 2013. Bill Schmalfeldt was the editor of Breitbart Unmasked at the time the pictures were published. A few hours ago, the Cabin Boy™ tweeted this.Here are thumbnails of the pictures that were published. There’s no question that the pictures were taken by Brett Kimberlin. He was photographed while he was taking a picture of Mrs. Walker, and there is forensic information tying the images to his iPhone. There is also no question that Bill Schmalfeldt (in his “Liberal Grouch” persona) was editor of the blog at that time. As of 12:01 am ET today, they were still on line at www.breitbartunmasked.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/03/walkerandwife1.jpg and www.breitbartunmasked.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/03/walkerandwife11.jpg.
These aren’t the greatest images, but the Breitbart Unmasked posts using them claim that they are, in fact, pictures of the Walkers.
UPDATE—The thumbnail on the right is a picture of the Walker’s car with Mrs. Walker sitting in the front seat. It was taken from a fairly low angle, suggesting someone sitting in a lower car parked in front. If you look closely, you can see that something is covering Mrs. Walker’s face. It turns out that it was an iPhone, and that she was using its camera.Her photo shows someone in a gold Prius holding an iPhone up as if to take a picture. According to the contemporaneous records, that Prius has the same tag number as the one shown in the online court database for a traffic ticket issued to Brett Kimberlin, and Brett Kimberlin was driving it.
Breitbart Unmasked, a website over which the Cabin Boy™ exercised editorial control, published the pictures in question on two occasions, tagging them as “walkerandwife1” and “walkerandwife11.” But the Cabin Boy™ says that he was not responsible. He’s right. He was irresponsible.

BTW, the links to those pictures that Brett Kimberlin took in the parking lot of the Howard County District Court House were still live on the
Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Brett Unread website as of 9:30 last night.
