Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Brett Kimberlin tried running his election protection scams for over a decade, and was able to gin up support from interesting sources. This post, Velvet Revolution US: Bigger Than It Seems?, from eight years ago today deals with funding he received from the Threshold Foundation.

The above extract from the 2008 annual report of the Threshold Foundation describes Velvet Revolution US as

… an online activist organization of 154 affiliate organizations and 18,984 members.

The 35 kilobucks in funding was supposed to be for an “Election Protection Strike Force.”

Uh, huh.

<mockery>One wonders if one of the “affiliate organizations” is a real estate enterprise offering to sell bridges to most of (say, 18,980) the “members.”</mockery>

Of course, it is absolutely false to say that Velvet Revolution ever had more than a handful of members. I’m not sure how such claims are categorized in the not-for-profit world, but in engineering we would refer to them as a lies.

The Dread Deadbeat Protector Kimberlin is also The Dread Deadbeat Perjurer Kimberlin.
