Brett Kimberlin, the notorious “Speedway Bomber” has filed a $1 million lawsuit against five conservative bloggers, accusing them of harassment, defamation, and conspiracy, according to a report that was filed on Tuesday.
[Update] Late breaking news added at the end of this news report.
The affected bloggers are Robert S. McCain, Aaron Walker, W.J.J. Hoge, Ali A. Akbar, and an unknown blogger who has masked his identity, and goes by the name of "Kimberlin Unmasked".
When Kimberlin was 24, he set off a string of daily bombs in the small town of Speedway, Indiana, terrorizing the town and he is also a liberal activist and the founder of the radical leftist groups, “Velvet Revolution”, and “Justice Through Music”, and was the subject of the book, "Citizen K".
Kimberlin spent 17 years in federal prison for that attack.
Kimberlin is a career criminal with convictions over the years that include being charged with felony perjury, manufacturing and possessing a destructive device, malicious damage by explosives with personal injury, impersonating a federal officer, illegal use of a Department of Defense insignia, illegal use of the Presidential Seal, receipt of explosives by a convicted felon, conspiracy to distribute marijuana.
Since then, Kimberlin has gone after conservatives who talk or reports about his past and his present activities.
One of the bloggers said, “His violent criminal behavior didn't begin nor did it end with the bombings. Currently, on parole Kimberlin is using the court system to once again harass his victims.”
“And now he wants more than $1 MILLION he is seeking in his frivolous lawsuit… he wants silence. Kimberlin's 2-year campaign of harassment has led to bloggers losing jobs, threats of violence, police "SWATTings" and one journalist even had to move homes with his family.”
In 2012, the Paulding County Republican Examiner reported on the conservative bloggers being harassed by Kimberlin in which the late Andrew Breitbart warned about Kimberlin and how liberals have embraced him as one of their own.
Also in 2012, the Blaze reported on Kimberlin was being funded by the socialist George Soros, who revealed that Kimberlin’s job was to terrorize conservative bloggers into silence and to use the U.S. legal system, as well as less desirable channels, to silence those who have dared tell the story of Kimberlin.
