One of the allegedly defamatory things that The
Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin has accused people of saying about him is that he’s a “fraudster.” Well, I can understand why someone who had read the TKPOTD from five years ago today might have come to such a conclusion about him.

Most folks who have been following the Saga of The Dread Pirate Kimberlin know that he had his parole revoked, and most believe it was revoked for failure to make good on the judgment due Sandra DeLong. That’s true, but there was another reason—mortgage fraud. The following is from the U. S. District Court opinion upholding the revocation of TDPK’s parole [Kimberlin v. Dewalt, 12 F.Supp.2d 487 (1998)]:
On March 25, 1997 the Commission issued a summons that was served on petitioner on April 10, 1997, requiring his presence at a preliminary interview. Petitioner was charged with (1) submitting a fraudulent loan application by making a false statement as to a material fact when he denied having an outstanding judgments against him; and (2) noncompliance with the special payment condition. On April 25, 1997 petitioner attended a preliminary interview by Probation Officer Catherine J. Kirby. At that hearing petitioner denied the charges, claimed poverty and said he was trying to settle the matter with Sandra DeLong. Officer Kirby concluded that petitioner had fraudulently concealed from the mortgage company the true extent of his indebtedness and that he intended to “make sure that [Sandra DeLong] gets as little money as possible.”

Kimberlin was apparently willing to have his parole revoked rather than take any steps to satisfy his debt to Mrs. DeLong.
