Michelle Malkin has called Brett Kimberlin an "online terrorist ringleader," while blogger Jimmie Bise Jr. prefers the phrase "lying felon," but Kimberlin's political allies call him a "progressive activist." During the past week, Kimberlin's bizarre methods of "activism" have made him the focus of intense scrutiny from conservative bloggers, arousing the interest of major news organizations, so that the convicted felon once notorious as the "Speedway Bomber" is likely to become even more notorious in the near future.
Since 2010, Kimberlin has been suing, smearing, harassing, and otherwise attempting to intimidate bloggers who write about his criminal history. It seemed he was intent on silencing the truth and -- although I had never even heard of him until May 17 -- within four days of my beginning to report about him on my personal blog, Kimberlin began targeting me with his thug tactics. On Monday, May 21, I left my Maryland home and departed to another state where, for the past week, I've continued a series of reports I've called "The Kimberlin Files." These online dispatches have been filed from an undisclosed location, my whereabouts concealed in order to protect myself and others from the menace of a dangerous man who by all rights should still be behind bars.
