Convicted felon Brett Kimberlin was sentenced in the 1978 bombing of the Indianapolis Speedway. He has since become a jailhouse lawyer, a drain on the legal system and a Left-Wing cause celebre, with major funding from left-leaning activists and foundations -- including Barbra Streisand, Theresa Heinz Kerry and The Tides Foundation, which is controlled by George Soros.
Tony Katz writes, "Kimberlin works aggressively to silence those who speak about him. Recently, he went after blogger/journalist Robert Stacy McCain, who writes at TheOtherMcCain.com, Kimberlin went as far as calling the workplace of McCain's wife to complain. Taking this and other actions as a threat, McCain and his family were forced to leave their Maryland home for safety reasons. "

Interviewing Robert Stacy McCain About Brett Kimberlin RWN
Robert Stacy McCain, who blogs at RWN on occasion, has become a story himself this week. After reporting on “Speedway Bomber” Brett Kimberlin, Stacy announced to the world that Kimberlin had been in touch with his wife’s employer and that he had moved his family out of their house as a result. Quite naturally, this caught people’s attention — and that was before this article from Patterico came out today credibly alleging that Kimberlin and his allies had engaged in harassment that included having a SWAT team called to his house. So, I got in touch with Stacy on Wednesday night, set up an impromptu interview, and what follows is the transcript of our roughly 30 minute long conversation, which was edited down for brevity’s sake.
Can you sum up what Kimberlin did to Aaron Worthing, in say 60 seconds or so, to give people an idea of what first drew your attention to Brett Kimberlin?
Aaron Worthing agreed to give some legal assistance to Seth Allen when Kimberlin sued Seth Allen for harassment. Worthing was in a court appearance on behalf of Allen in a Virginia court and Kimberlin was using his iPad to take a picture of Worthing, whose actual name is Aaron Walker, in contradiction of court rules. You can’t do photography in a court like that. So Worthing snatched the iPad out of Kimberlin’s hands and then Kimberlin claimed that Worthing had assaulted him. Worthing says that basically what Kimberlin was trying to do was to find grounds to frame him for an assault charge.
Subsequently, as a result of Kimberlin’s obsession with Aaron Worthing and his continual harassment and stalking of Aaron Worthing, Worthing lost his day job as did his wife because Kimberlin contacted his wife’s employer. When a convicted terrorist bomber contacts somebody’s employer, people get scared. This kind of intimidation is what Kimberlin is using.
How did you get involved in the Brett Kimberlin case?
Thursday morning I was making preparations to go cover the G8 Summit at Camp David, 15 miles from my house. The Occupy protestors were going to be there and it was a chance to get out and cover some news live on the street, in person, the way I like to do it. That morning I saw a friend of mine re-tweet Aaron Worthing about this in a way that made me realize that what he had must be something significant. So I clicked over to that and it was 28,000 words. I started reading through it and saw the name Neal Rauhauser. Neal Rauhauser is the Democratic Party consultant who has described himself as a hacker. So for him to be involved in Aaron Worthing’s case was significant as news. I had never heard the name Brett Kimberlin until Thursday morning.
My first post was about how Neal Rauhauser was connected to Brett Kimberlin, who is a convicted felon. Then after I posted that, people began sending me more information about who Brett Kimberlin is and what he’s been involved in and I began to dig. One of the people who was crucial to helping me figure out what was going on was Matthew Vadum, an investigative journalist who is perhaps the nation’s leading authority on ACORN. Matthew Vadum got me the information on the funding of Brett Kimberlin’s 501c3 Justice Through Music project and I published that and started looking for more.
Thursday night a sock puppet account for a site that is what I’ve started to refer to as “not Brett Kimberlin”…
Is it the Breitbart site?
Yeah, it’s Breitbart Unmasked.
I thought that was it.
Sock puppets started tweeting me and Patterico and Aaron Worthing were cc’d on the same messages that were coming to me. …So I got into a colloquy with this Breitbart Unmasked and asked if he was Brett Kimberlin. The sock puppet denied it. .. I’m a reporter, so I had to get that denial on the record. …I said to the sock puppet, “Well if you’re not Brett Kimberlin, you don’t mind if I say this. If you’re not Brett Kimberlin, you don’t mind if I say that.” I said, “You’re a convicted felon” and that enraged the sock puppet, which made me think that, of course, this sock puppet was lying and it’s Brett Kimberlin.
