Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Brett Kimberlin has a long history of making inflated claims about the effectiveness and reach of his not-for-profits Consider the howler detailed seven years ago today in a post titled Dread Pirate #BrettKimberlin’s Extended Crew.

During the damages hearing for the Kimberlin v. Allen lawsuit back in November, 2011, TDPK said the following under oath concerning one of his “charities”:

The other organization is called Velvet Revolution. And Velvet Revolution is a, it’s an organization that has over 150 organizations affiliated with it nationwide, with a membership base of over, over a million people …

That’s one heckuva following. Gentle Reader, do you think it’s real?

Me neither.

In 2017, Kimberlin changed the corporate name of Velvet Revolution US to Protect Our Elections/EMPR Inc. While the empr dot media Ukrainian news website still appears to be a going concern, the protectourelections dot org website has only rarely been updated over the past year. The PayPal donation link goes to dead account, and has been like that for a while.

While VRUS may have tried to “affiliate” with 150 or so other groups, few, if any, of the connections were two-way. If Kimberlin were able to exploit “over a million people” as potential donors, the POE website’s PayPal link would be too valuable to allow it to be out of service.

It’s almost as if Kimberlin was lying.
