Everybody Blog About Brett Kimberlin Day: The Aaron Walker Chapter

If you haven’t heard already, today is “Everybody Blog About Brett Kimberlin Day.”

Who is Brett Kimberlin?

He is a former murder suspect. He is the Speedway Bomber of 1978.

He has 35 criminal counts against him, appearing in 5 criminal trials, and serving 17 years in prison.

He is the founder of non-profits Justice for Music and Velvet Revolution, which have received thousands of dollars in grants from the Tides Foundation, the Barbara Streisand Foundation as well as the Heinz Family Foundation.

Among these credentials, you might add “enemy of free speech.” Brett Kimberlin has taken it upon himself to employ the courts to harass anyone who speaks out in any way about him. He has done so primarily against independent bloggers who have found his association Democrat operatives like Neal Rauhauser, curious, at best.

Aaron Walker was not forced to flee his home to an undisclosed location, like blogger Robert Stacy McCain, yet he has faced his share of trials at the hands of Brett Kimberlin.

It started when Walker, an attorney, offered blogger Seth Allen pro-bono advice on how to deal with a case Brett Kimberlin had filed against him (for blogging about Kimberlin’s shady past, of course).

That was enough to put Walker on Kimberlin’s radar.

On December 15th, 2011, Kimberlin asked Walker waive his attorney client privileges and testify against Allen. Kimberlin threatened to out Walker as a blogger (pseudonym “Aaron Worthing”) if he did not comply. Walker obviously did not. In response, Brett Kimberlin filed subpoenas on Google and Comcast, seeking “Aaron Worthing’s” true identity.

Based on statements from the case involving Allen, Walker filed a motion to quash those subpoenas, based in part that the argument that Kimberlin had obtained the underlying injunction using perjuryed testimony.

After Walker filed this, Kimberlin learned of Walker’s identity by other means and then put significant amounts of personal information about Walker gratuitously into a court document.

On January 9, 2012, while walking out of the perjury hearing Kimberlin turned to Walker and said, “I would suggest Mr. Walker, that you just leave me alone.”

Walker replied “I’m just going to tell the truth…”  Walker asked Kimberlin why he didn’t call him as a witness, as Kimberlin had sought the subpoenas claiming that Walker’s testimony was vital in that hearing.  Walker said, “The truth is, you didn’t want my testimony today, you just wanted my identity.”

“AND I GOT IT!” Kimberlin angrily shot back.

As they proceeded into the hall, Kimberlin lifted his iPad as though to do something with it.  Walker, not having time to think and suspecting it might be something dangerous, snatched the iPad out of Kimberlin’s hands and kept it away from him until sheriff’s deputies could arrive on the scene.

It was from this interaction that Kimberlin tried to frame Walker for a crime.

Kimberlin filed criminal charges against Walker for assault. He produced false medical records to the court indicating a brutal physical confrontation.

The charges lasted for two months and required a full defense to be prepared by Walker. For a time Walker was not sure the charges would be dropped, the only witnesses being an elderly woman suspected to be Kimberlin’s mother and an anonymous man.

Eventually, a security video was found and the court threw the case out. The video effectively proved that Kimberlin perjured himself (again) by saying under oath that Walker “decked” him.

After this event, Kimberlin continued to harass Walker via the Maryland court system.

Since then he has filed a temporary peace order after Walker posted a detailed account of how Kimberlin attempted to frame him for assault.

“Simply, he committed perjury. He tried to cover it by extorting me and then filed charges against me when it failed,” Walker said.

During this time, Walker informed his and his wife’s employer about the situation (including Kimberlin’s explosive past). They were initially suspended from their jobs by their employers, fearing for their workplace’s safety. By the end of the week he was fired and the next week his wife was.

Since then Walker and his wife still haven’t found new jobs.

“It was very isolating,” Walker said of the past few months. But now, support is being shown all across the conservative blogosphere.

In one hearing, Kimberlin indicated that he receives a Google alert e-mail for his name every day. That’s how he initially saw articles about him and set out to silence various conservative bloggers including Mandy Nagy, Patterico and R.S. McCain.

We hope you help make his Google alert reading as informative as possible by taking part in “Everybody Blog About Brett Kimberlin Day.”

Tweet, blog and post the various stories concerning this despicable man.

    This might put me on Mr. Kimberlin’s black list but then I’m towards the end of my life anyway so it doesn’t matter. Are our judges and enforcement officers so easily bought that they would allow someone with Mr. Kimberlin’s background to terrorize so many people and get away with it? What used to make the USA stand out from most of the world was the freedom of its people to stand up and be heard for what was right. Honor and Integrity. Do not give that up. It is indifference that allows people like Brett Kimberlin to get away with his bullying tactics. It is the peoples place to make sure that the channels in our system are accountable and not corruptible.

    This is funny. A man who uses Free Speak to silence others and then threatens others who disagrees with him. One day he might get his wish and then others who are exactly like him may take a dislike to him and silence him. Now where in History have we seen this before????? Germany, Russia, China, Korea . Can we air drop him over Cuba and se how he likes it there since it is such a wonderful place?

  3. Telluride says:

    Look, kids, this is what militant leftist politics do to your sanity and your character. All we need to put people off Kimberlin is truthful reporting on what he’s like. Plus maybe a psych assessment on this misanthropic narcissist. He makes it so easy.

    1. Sandip says:

      That sounds both cmmoon-sensical and logical. Alas, cmmoon and sense and logic cannot hope to overcome . (Link from the second update to a .)Conceded, it sounds from Munsey’s account as if Walker was his own worst enemy here. Nevertheless, the retired, old-fashioned, outdated, and quite likely addled judge made the wrong call.

  4. Iim gone to convey my little brother, that he should also visit this website on regular basis to take updated from latest news.
