We all have pasts. Some of us have notorious youthful pasts.
That’s from the Kimberlin v. Team Themis, et al. RICO 2: Electric Boogaloo LOLsuit, as attached to this Hogewash post. Of course the youthful indiscretions involve building and exploding 8 bombs in Speedway, Indiana. According to Mark Singer’s authorized biography of Brett Kimberlin, the police figured the explosions were a poorly-thought out plan to distract law enforcement from a murder investigation. Long story. Preteen girl involved with Brett, maybe chaste. Maybe not. Buy the book.
Hey, you know who was really youthful? Debbie Barton. Just sayin’.
I’ve been trying to read the document quoted above, but I suffer from bouts of confusion after a few minutes. Maybe you can help. Here’s a puzzling section about Former Massey energy CEO Donald Blankenship:
See, I know that Donald Blankenship was indicted in the deaths of 29 miners at his company’s Upper Big Branch Mine in West Virginia. I’m having a very hard time finding any grand jury indictments about Team Themis, John Hoge, or even Blankenship’s membership on the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
On the other hand, if Brett Kimberlin has some information relating to the Upper Big Branch mine, I hope he’s sharing it with the feds. I can’t imagine that he would stay quiet just because Blankenship was on the Chamber, and the organization once toyed with a nutty anti-lefty campaign. Apparently the trial is just starting up, and I’m pretty sure the prosecutor wants to get all the information he can before the jury deliberates.
Gosh, I know if I had some information about an unrepentant domestic terrorist, or a mine manager, I wouldn’t let any bloggers stop me.
But then maybe some of us are just easily troubled:
Oh, and by the way. I am not a part of a vast right wing conspiracy to cause Kimberlin to feel distress. Independent of all other right wing bloggers, I came to the conclusion that Brett Kimberlin is someone I’d like to tell the truth about. If that adds to his distress, well, truth hurts Skippy.
