Creepy porn lawyer Michael Avenatti has been convicted of extortion. This should put a definite end to his attempt to run for the Democratic nomination for President.
Alexandra Chalupa, who was involved in Avenatti’s abortive campaign effort in Iowa, was unavailable for comment.
The TKPOTD for two years ago today took a look at what was happening with Brett Kimberlin’s Protect Our Elections operation.

It looks as if The
Dread Deadbeat Publisher Kimberlin has actually begun to try house cleaning some of his web domains to raise some donations. Recently, there’s been a bit of activity on his protectourelections dot org site.Protect Our Elections is a sort of subsidiary to Velvet Revolution.US which is allegedly concerned with election integrity. I has lots of stuff about real and imagined activities by Russians and Republicans, but nothing about Democrat shenanigans.
You’d think that a progressive-oriented organization would at least take note of how the DNC and Hillary Clinton steamrolled Bernie Sanders. OTOH, Kimberlin seems to have connections to folks like Cody Shearer and Harriet Crosby who are or have been connected to the Clintons.

A couple of years ago, The
Dread Deadbeat Protector Kimberlin was still part of peddling the Russia Collusion Hoax. However, he’d already been caught (in 2017) with his hands in an effort to acquire forged financial documents aimed at causing problems for the Trump administration, and it’s recently become more widely known that the old Velvet Revolution US is now renamed Protect Our Elections/EMPR Inc.—EMPR being EuroMaidanPR, an English-language Ukrainian propaganda operation.
Given the evidence that the former Ukrainian government probably attempted to interfere with the 2016 election, Kimberlin’s association with the Alexandra Chalupa (a likely Ukrainian/DNC operative), and POE’s ties to EMPR, it may be that Protect Our Elections is no longer a viable entity. The IRS has revoked its 501(c)(4) status. It will be interesting to see what happens next.
The story is breaking again about Democrat/Ukrainian activist Alexandra Chalupa’s involvement with DoJ and DHS election hacking with a offshoot of Anonymous that called themselves “The Protectors.” They were affiliated with Brett Kimberlin and his Velvet Revolution US not-for-profit. Here’s how Kimberlin, the convicted Speedway Bomber who is probably most famous for lying about being Dan Quayle’s dope dealer, testified about the Protectors operation during a trial held in October, 2016.
We’re doing a lot of, of, because my wife’s from the Ukraine, we’re doing a lot of work with Ukraine.
Right now, I’m working with Congress members on legislation to protect the vote. I’m working with the Department of Justice right now to protect the, this coming election. There’s been a lot of information about hacking by Russians.
And our team that works for me are, are specialists in, in hacking and electronic cyber hacking, and things like that. So we are probably one of the foremost groups in, in the country on that.
Kimberlin has indeed been deeply involved in things Ukrainian. He worked with Alexandra Chalupa and her sister with their Digital Maidan Twitter project which supported the 2014 revolution, and he is involved with the EuroMaidan PR website as well. In fact, he changed the Velvet Revolution US corporate name to Protect Our Elections/EMPR Inc.
I can think of some interesting questions for Ms. Chalupa.
The Gentle Reader may have noticed that people with connections to Ukraine have been in the news recently. My podcasting partner and fellow codefendant Stacy McCain has an interesting post here.
BTW, here’s a picture of Brett Kimberlin taken while he was stalking various bloggers during BlogBash 2013. I was reminded of it after reading Stacy’s post.
I’m scheduled on Fault Lines Radio with Nixon and Stranahan at 8:45 this morning to discuss the Alexandra Chalupa/Brett Kimberlin connection.
My podcasting partner Stacy McCain has a new menu item.
Everything is proceeding as I have foreseen
One of the Kimberlin-related websites that has recently disappeared was manafortwatch dot org. The site had an … um … interesting history. Here are the first few lines of the domain’s WHOIS data:
Domain Name: MANAFORTWATCH.ORG
Registry Domain ID: D189396510-LROR
Registrar WHOIS Server: whois.godaddy.com
Registrar URL: http://www.whois.godaddy.com
Updated Date: 2019-08-30T08:10:23Z
Creation Date: 2016-07-19T01:06:01Z
Registry Expiry Date: 2020-07-19T01:06:01Z
… and here is the site’s hosting history:
The domain was registered through GoDaddy on 10 August, 2016 and initially hosted on a GoDaddy server (220.127.116.11), but two days later, it was moved to the Fintel Associates server (18.104.22.168) that hosts the Justice Through Music Project and Protect Our Elections websites. On 10 August, 2019, the site was moved back to a GoDaddy server (22.214.171.124), and on 1 September, it was taken down well before the expiration date for the registration.
Here’s the interesting thing about that timeline. The domain was registered one week before the New York Times broke the story of the Ukrainian ledger detailing payments made to Manafort. It seems that someone with insider knowledge of the Ukrainian National Anti-Corruption Bureau’s claims about the ledger was involved in registering the domain.
We know that Alexandra Chalupa was working through her Ukrainian contacts to dig up dirt on Manafort. We know that she was working with Kimberlin through that time period.
