Yesterday, I did a Reader’s Digest version of Aaron Walker, aka Aaron Worthing’s long post on having been legally harassed by Speedway Bomber Brett Kimberlin, who also tried to frame him up on charges of assault. Matthew Vadum revealed yesterday that the Tides Foundation and other lefty individuals and organizations have been funding the convicted terrorist’s “non-profit.” Stacy’s been working the phone and the ‘nets and the Wayback Machine, and has come up with more info on the murderous, ambulance-chasing, pedophile rumor-ridden douchebag and his Dem-operative coterie:
This was important, and Andrew Breitbart understood why it was important: The “TwitterGate” episode in October 2010 exposed Democrat operative Neal Rauhauser’s role in an apparent conspiracy to harass Tea Party activists online. Shortly thereafter, Mandy Nagy (aka “Liberty Chick”) documented Brett Kimberlin heinous criminal history.
Kimberlin and his “Velvet Revolution” partner Brad Friedman teamed up to urge Maryland authorities to prosecute James O’Keefe and Hannah Giles. At some point, according to Kimberlin, he became an “associate” of Rauhauser.
Now, investigative journalist Matthew Vadum has shown that major “progressive” tax-exempt foundations contributed tens of thousands of dollars to Kimberlin’s “Justice Through Music Project” and “Velvet Revolution” non-profits.
Money is fungible, as they say. The funding of Kimberlin’s projects — tens of thousands of dollars from the George Soros-connected Tides Foundation, as well as foundations associated with Barbra Streisand and Sen. John Kerry’s wife — thus supported all of Kimberlin’s activities, including his effort to have O’Keefe and Giles prosecuted for their ACORN takedown.
The association between Kimberlin, Friedman and Rauhauser inspires an obvious suspicion: Who is footing the bill for various online projects targeting leading conservative New Media activists?
Go read the whole thing, please. It really is important. And please go read Bob Belvedere on online harassment of conservative bloggers.
UPDATE: Donald Douglas widens the scope in another direction, and adumbrates a possible book on the harassment networks.
