The TKPOTD for ten years ago today was about The
Dread Deadbeat Pusher Kimberlin’s first prison sentence.

Brett Kimberlin’s first term in jail was for perjury. He was convicted of lying to a federal grand jury about dealing LSD. In his book Citizen K Mark Singer quotes one of Kimberlin’s former customers.
The government’s general impression of Kimberlin was corroborated by Tim Young, who told me Brett was his source for several “multithousand-hit deals.”
“I probably sold fifty to seventy-five thousand hits of acid in my life, over a year and a half period,” Young said. “Purple microdot and orange sunshine are two that I remember. How much of it from Brett? All of it. I don’t remember buying acid from anybody but Brett. He sold it to me about ten thousand hits at a time. If he said he never sold acid, he’s a lying [redacted]. Guarantee.”

I have independently confirmed through interviews with multiple witnesses who were in Bloomington, Indiana, while Kimberlin was dealing LSD that he was actually wholesaling it.
