Michelle Malkin has the details about the ongoing nightmare for bloggers who dare speak of the criminal past of convicted Speedway bomber Brett Kimberlin who appears to be ever-so-willing to persistently abuse the civil and criminal legal system. Over the past year Aaron Walker, Patterico, Liberty Chick and now Stacy McCain have been stalked and terrorized by convicted Speedway Bomber Brett Kimberlin because they dared to mention his criminal past or assisted others who did as well.

From The Other McCain (Via The Noisy Room):

Convicted terrorist Brett Kimberlin on Monday continued his effort to silence those who write about his criminal past by contacting my wife's employer, claiming that I was "harassing" him. The resulting security concern required immediate relocation if I was to be able to continue writing about the case of Kimberlin, a violent felon, perjurer and admitted tax cheat who is employed as the director of a 501(c)3 non-profit that has collected $1.8 million in contributions since 2005.

Kimberlin was convicted of multiple federal felonies in 1981 and sentenced to 50 years in prison after he terrorized a small Indiana town in a brutal crime weeklong bombing spree. Law enforcement officials told the Indianapolis Star they believed the bombings were committed in an attempt to distract authorities investigating the 1978 murder of a 65-year-old grandmother, a crime in which Kimberlin was a suspect.

In recent months, Kimberlin has used a strategy of legal intimidation and workplace harassment in an apparent attempt to silence his critics, including blogger Seth Allen, Virginia attorney Aaron Walker and Los Angeles deputy district attorney Patrick Frey.

And ...
Kimberlin is a known associate of Neal Rauhauser, a Democrat campaign consultant who has described himself as a computer "hacker." Kimberlin, director of the tax-exempt Justice Through Music Project, is also involved in another tax-exempt group, Velvet Revolution, which has gained national attention by demanding criminal prosecution of high-profile figures including Republican strategist Karl Rove, U.S. Chamber of Commerce president Tom Donohue, and the late Internet news entrepreneur Andrew Breitbart. Kimberlin's name also surfaced last year in connection with the so-called "Anonymous" international hacker conspiracy. Kimberlin has pursued numerous strategies to harass journalists and bloggers who have attempted to call attention to his criminal past and his notorious dishonesty -- a "top-flight con man," as Publisher's Weekly called him in a review of award-winning journalist Mark Singer's 1996 book, Citizen K: The Deeply Weird American Journey of Brett Kimberlin.
From Patterico:
First, this isn't about dredging up a crime that happened 34 years ago. Kimberlin has done plenty since then. He made claims about selling pot to Dan Quayle -- claims that the lefty author of a book about Kimberlin believes are false. He deceptively avoided paying a wrongful death judgment to the widow of the man he blew up. He sued a small-time blogger in 2011 for telling the truth about him, and made several false statements about his history under oath in an effort to win a large cash judgment. He made several provably false statements regarding his encounter with Aaron Walker, in an effort to get the State of Maryland to prosecute Walker. He has regularly defamed, harassed, and stalked people who criticized him.

And that's just the tip of the iceberg, folks.

From askmarion:
Brett Kimberlin is an American terrorist who stops at nothing to silence his critics, including intimidation and murder. He is also a liberal activist (surprised?) who has been funded by George Soros' Tides Foundation, the Barbara Streisand Foundation and Teresa Heinz Kerry ( &Senator John Kerry) Foundation. Yes that is right, this violent convicted terrorist bomber has been given million$ by progressives ... and is now terrorizes bloggers. Must-read Matthew Vadum, Front Page Magazine for more on who's financially aiding and abetting -- "Brett Kimberlin and the Hall of Fame of Leftist Terrorists."
Aaron Worthing exposed the harassment he experienced from Kimberlin, and his post is most definitely well worth reading.

Lee Stranahan provides some basic background on Kimberlin in a video (hat tip - Michelle Malkin):

As Bob Owens so appropriately asks: Why are Maryland Democrats letting the "Speedway Bomber" get away with terrorism? (And why do radical leftist terrorists keep turning up around Barack Obama?).
