With the first of the Kimberlin LOLsuits having been won, the TKPOTD for seven years ago today took a look at one of the claims in the RICO Madness LOLsuit which pointed to another of Kimberlin’s bits of lawfare, as suit against the Federal Election Commission in which one of his not-for-profits was a sorta/kinda plaintiff.

I looked up that lawsuit on PACER and read the motion for summary judgment that TDPK wrote about. In a declaration that accompanies the motion, Kevin Zeese declared on 28 July, 2014, the following under penalty of perjury:
The complaint filed in the Public Citizen, et al. v. FEC lawsuit, gives ProtectOurElections.org’s address as a post office box in DC.That organization is actually nothing more than a back burner project of VelvetRevolution.US, and it probably operates out of the 79th Place address in Cabin John, Maryland, or Mrs. Kimberlin’s basement in Bethesda.
Note that Mr. Zeese says that he’s an attorney with an entity that operates in DC and/or Maryland. According to the state’s list of attorneys licensed to practice in Maryland, Kevin Zeese is not shown as a member of the bar in that state. Additionally, his license is shown as suspended in DC.Hmmmmmm.

Given Kimberlin’s record in court, the Gentle Reader should not be surprised to learn that the Federal Election Commission eventual won the suit.
