    Protect and support your local blogger

    I posted some links over the weekend to the saga of Aaron Worthing (Walker) and someone named Brett Kimberlin.  I had never heard of Kimberlin before, or if I had it only was in connection with Walker’s continuing legal difficulties.  Apparently there is a long background of conflict between Kimberlin and conservative bloggers, as the archives at Patterico indicate.

    Robert Stacy McCain took up the story, and has been digging into the backround of Kimberlin and his alleged connections to a non-profit and Democratic donors.

    Now the story has gone from bad to worse, as indicated in McCain’s post yesterday and again today:

    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.

    The story is not about McCain as such.  It’s about how bloggers, who don’t have large organizations and cadres of lawyers standing behind them, can be the subjects of attempted intimidation through a perceived weakpoint, such as an employer.

    I’ve been subjected to periodic complaint letters and not just in connection with the Stop Rush effort:

    One of the people behind Stop Rush not only has suggested I should worry about my job, that person repeatedly has tweeted to my employer complaining about me.

    If true that Kimberlin contacted McCain’s wife’s employer, that would elevate it to an entirely new level, particularly in light of the history.

    Protect and support your local blogger.  Think where you’d be without us.

    Update:  It’s worth noting this ending to McCain’s post:

    The National Bloggers Club, Inc, a non-profit organization that organizes the annual Blog Bash event celebrating free-market bloggers, is making available a press contact for those interested in learning more about this story:
