Well, well, well, … Matt Osborne got his name in the papers, the New York Times, no less.
The Gentle Reader may have noticed a story running around the Internet recently about fake “Russian-style” Facebook campaigning that targeted an American election. That election was a recent Alabama senatorial election, and the victimized candidate was Roy Moore. One of the fake campaigns was called Dry Alabama, and it was run by Democrats.
The Dry Alabama Facebook page, which appeared to be run by teetotaler Baptists, had a blunt message: Alcohol is the devil’s work, and the state should ban it entirely. The related Twitter feed exhorted, “Pray for Roy Moore.” The actual purpose of the social media campaign was to paint Moore and his supporters as religious wackos.
Matt Osborne, a veteran progressive activist who worked on the project, said he hoped that such deceptive tactics would someday be banned from American politics. But in the meantime, he said, he believes that Republicans are using such trickery and that Democrats cannot unilaterally give it up.
“If you don’t do it, you’re fighting with one hand tied behind your back,” said Mr. Osborne, a writer and consultant who lives outside Florence, Ala. “You have a moral imperative to do this — to do whatever it takes.”
Osborne’s buddies at Protect Our Elections were unavailable for comment.
One of the primary reasons for the
Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin’s unblemished record of failure at lawfare is his inattention to important details. I took note of such a failure a couple of years ago today in a post titled The Fourth Circuit Makes Short Work of Brett Kimberlin.

The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin filed a motion for reconsideration of the dismissal of this appeal of the Kimberlin v. Hunton & Williams LLP, et al. RICO 2: Electric Boogaloo LOLsuit. He didn’t file on time.
Everything is proceeding as I have foreseen.

Perhaps he was too busy working as The
Dread Deadbeat Protector Kimberlin in the aftermath of protecting our 2016 election.
I sometimes wonder if Brett Kimberlin knows how to tell a story without having at least one lie in it. Take a look at the TKPOTD for two years ago.

I’ve mentioned that VelvetRevolution.US is running another promotion centered on a reward for information concerning voting machine hacking again this year. One new twist is asking for donations to fund the reward.

Dread Deadbeat Prevaricator Kimberlin has changed VelvetReveolution.US’s corporate name to Protect Our Elections/EMPR Inc., but the entity was and still is a 501(c)4 organization as far as the IRS is concerned. While a 501(c)4 entity does not have to pay federal income taxes, donations to such an entity are not tax exempt. (Well, they may be if they’re legitimate business expenses, but good luck convincing the taxman that donations to TDPK’s “reward” fund qualify. Nothing in this post should be taken as tax advice.)
Lying liars gotta lie.
UPDATE—This is currently on the DONATE page of the Protect Our Elections website.The IRS Exempt Organizations Business Master File Extract shows that Protect Our Elections-EMPR Inc. is a 501(c)4 entity and that donations to it are not tax deductible.
Essentially all of Team Kimberlin websites wind up being poorly keep up if not completely abandoned. The first site that I noticed going fallow was the Bloggers Offense Fund site that earned Brett Kimberlin his Dread Pirate nickname. I wrote about his lack of attention to that sire six years ago today in a post titled Dread Pirate #BrettKimberlin’s Paperwork Trail.

Those Gentle Readers who have been following the Saga of The Dread Pirate Kimberlin here at Hogewash! for the past three months will remember that he acquired the title after he created a pirate-themed website for the Bloggers Offense Team. (No, I won’t link to it.) One of the pages on that site is called DOCUMENTS which says that it “will highlight all the documents that The Bloggers Defense Team will not produce …”
Here is what that page looked like at 8:00 am ET on 2 December, almost three months after it was first posted:
It’s empty. Now, why is that? One explanation might be that Hogewash! has been quick to publish TDPK’s court filings and related documents as soon as possible after they become publicly available.
OTOH, it is interesting that TDPK seems to have passed sealed document on to First Mate Neal Rauhauser and Cabin Boy Bill Schmalfeldt for publication rather than using the Bloggers Offense Team site.

Meanwhile, it’s been over a month since the Protect Our Elections website was updated, and more than six months have passed without any new material at the Justice Through Music Project site.
Dread Deadbeat Publisher Kimberlin has never had effective control of the narratives he’s tried to spin. Perhaps he’s finally figuring that out.
As of when I checked the Protect Our Elections/EMPR Inc and
Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread websites last night, The Dread Deadbeat Protector Kimberlin has not yet published any information about he and his hackers contributed to protecting the gubernatorial elections in Georgia or Florida or the senate race in Florida from Russian influence. In fact, he’s been completely silent on the topic of protecting our elections for the past 30 days.
Inquiring minds want to know.
Dread Deadbeat Protector Kimberlin has been too busy dealing with stolen votes to report on Protect Our Elections/EMPR Inc’s efforts to secure the recent election, but nothing has been posted on that organization’s web site for over three weeks.
