Patterico's Pontifications

Mail, I Get Mail

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 9:03 pm

From “Alicia Pain”:

You need to stop digging into Genette Cordova and Rep. AW. I cannot insure your safety if you continue.
Do not trust anyone.

Please think about your family. This story is not worth it. I can assure you that.

Please remember, your safety cannot be assured if you continue.

I am trying to help you, a lot of people are very disappointed that this story has continued.

You can continue with the story if you so desire, but your safety cannot be assured.

Thank you for your cooperation and your understanding.

Yours Truly- Alicia

Lotta red fonts in this e-mail. That was the scariest part of all!

Big drop coming later.

UPDATE: Ace e-mails to say he received the same threat.

UPDATE x2: Commenter Miranda finds a reference to “Alicia Pain” on the Web. Lotta red in this too. Scaaaaary!

UPDATE x3: Here is the header, for what it’s worth. I don’t know if you can learn anything from a header in an e-mail sent to a Gmail account, but for what it’s worth, here it is.

Does that tell you anything?

UPDATE x4: I had an e-mail exchange with “Alicia” last night. You may read it here.

UPDATE x5: Some chucklehead on Twitter thought I was accusing the real Alicia Pain of being the emailer. I think this is clear to everyone on Earth but him, but I’m obviously not saying that. I’m saying the emailer perhaps chose the name because if the violent images at the link. Duh.

  1. I’m not the only person who has been threatened with respect to this story, by the way. Not sure if I am allowed to talk about any other threat. Let me make a phone call and check. Be right back!

  2. Think she meant to sign it Unleash-a Pain.

  5. The intelligence of the person who wrote this e-mail cannot be assured.

    surely this e-mail must be reported to the FBI.

  8. surely this e-mail must be reported to the FBI.

    But why? She’s just trying to help me!

    Comment by Patterico (135ea8) — 6/23/2011 @ 9:11 pm

  9. I think Jen Preston might even agree that the biggest question is who was trying to silence the Reids regarding Gennette Cordova.

    Of course, this is bad enough that we’re back to that ‘deny deny deny’ routine, where we are told to assume it didn’t happen at all unless we manage to prove it absolutely.

    Assume, for the sake of argument, this really wound up in Reid’s inbox. Doesn’t that explain why a true left winger would cooperate with Weiner’s PR, stay quiet, and then eventually be outraged enough to share everything they had?

    Comment by Dustin (c16eca) — 6/23/2011 @ 9:12 pm

  10. On second thought, I’d send it back and ask for one of higher quality. I mean “This story is not worth it. I can assure you that” just doesn’t jibe with “I cannot insure your safety if you continue” ya know? I mean, it’s basically saying “There’s really nothin here. Boring stuff, really. Quite harmless, and totally uninteresting. So back off or we’ll kill you.”

    I mean, come on. They aren’t even trying any more.

    I blame the education system.

  12. Oh wait, I see this threat went to Patterico rather than the Reids. I misunderstood.

    Comment by elissa (1afff9) — 6/23/2011 @ 9:17 pm

  15. They do know what you do for a living, right?

    I am guessing you deal with scarier people on a daily basis.

    Still nothing wrong with reporting them.

  19. You know, I believe that there are people in the world evil enough to physically harm strangers that could threaten their existence. However, I don’t believe those people send warning notes. And I especially don’t believe they would sign such notes “Alicia.”

    Comment by angelatc (@AngelaTC) (10ffd2) — 6/23/2011 @ 9:21 pm

  20. Aaron, you beat me to the thought.

    The political hack who sent the threat will probably start blubbering when caught. Mr. P’s forensic computer skillz are not to be underestimated!

    Comment by Brother Bradley J. Fikes, C.O.R. (1feba4) — 6/23/2011 @ 9:23 pm

  21. 19 comments and no one has said Alicia was #hacked! ?

    You guys are slowing down.

  22. In case anyone didn’t get the Obscure Metal Reference, I texted my 19-year old “Alicia Pain” and she replied “Metal Chick”, fwiw.

    Comment by RB (3323dc) — 6/23/2011 @ 9:24 pm

  23. I particularly like how she threatens you but remains, Yours truly. I don’t think she has a keen understanding of the full intent of a threat. Clearly this isn’t her day job.

  26. And she is emailing it to a guy whose day job is prosecuting gang members in one of the worst parts of LA. Yup, that’s the guy that will be scared off by cheap threats and bad grammar!

  27. Anyone know does Hallmark have a card to help people who receive death threats feel better?

  28. The metal chick:

    Not exactly sweetness & light.

    Somebody has a nasty sense of humor.

    Comment by Miranda (4104db) — 6/23/2011 @ 9:29 pm

  29. Up to this point, I’ve been thinking this story does not deserve all the coverage you’ve given it, and skipped or at best lightly scanned all your posts.

    But if someone is scared enough of what you’re doing that they want to scare you, then you need to keep on digging.

    An observable problem with definitions and concepts has reared its ugly head here recently. “Threat”, “harassment”, etc. It’s almost starting to look like an epidemic of some sort.

    I think we’re the ones who don’t understand the rules of this game: definitions and concepts are fluid, interchangeable and ever-evolving. We should learn the rules.

    Only this time they effed up, and sent it to someone who could actually track them down…

  56. I miss the old days when threatening letters were pieced together from magazines.

    Exactly. Kids these days. No work ethic. Everything handed to them on a silver platter. Back in our day, if you were gonna send a death threat, it took time, work, and effort. Finding magazines and newspapers, scissors, glue, envelopes, stamps etc. It was work, but it was worth it.

    Nowadays these young whippersnappers just type a few words, hit the spellcheck button, and click ‘send’.

    That would be awesome. But now I have a mental picture of Anthony Weiner singing “The Crying Game” in karaoke that I just can’t shake….

  59. I have a friend request out to you. Am very intrested in the Anthony Weiner story and have been on it since day one. It is not over until that letter of resignation gets to where it needs to go.

  60. I was trying to go to sleep when the threat and comments started up.

    You can continue with the story if you so desire, but your safety cannot be assured.

    Why do I hear the Lily Tomlin reading that line outloud in her Telephone Lady voice..”Is this the party to whom I am speaking”

    I particularly like how she threatens you but remains, Yours truly. I don’t think she has a keen understanding of the full intent of a threat. Clearly this isn’t her day job.

  62. 1. She says your safety can’t be insured or assured, but she doesn’t specify whether it can be ensured. You should follow up on that.

    2. “Alicia Pain” sounds like a dumpy black-dyed sullen chick stuffed like a bratwurst into fake leather that you pay twenty bucks to hit you with a stick in a dingy basement somewhere in the Valley while you call her “mistress.” I mean, if you were into that sort of thing.

    3. Patrick, you’re in far more danger every time you take the elevators in the CCB than you are from an arrested adolescent goth poseur.

    Nah, Crying Game is more of a feather boa thing. Weiner only tucks it for the full on Marilyn Monroe “Happy Birthday Mr Pwesident” nights.

    Comment by Stephanie Charles (77124b) — 6/23/2011 @ 10:00 pm

  73. This could be like a Horror movie where the villain goes around picking everyone off one by one until the killer is revealed to be…..Max the Dog!

    Comment by Joseph (f00357) — 6/23/2011 @ 10:01 pm

  74. Do you ever wonder how, at the gatherings where such people congregate, they keep a straight face during introductions?

    “Alicia Pain? Nice to meet you! I’m Wayne Ennui.”

  75. Sounds a little Frischy to me. Perhaps we have a new female cast member, Deb, joining Betty and Veronica and the rest of the gang.

    Be careful out there…

  77. Does this girl (?) realize who she’s threatening? Man, I thought the punk who threatened Althouse was stupid, but this takes the cake.

  79. True story, I once knew a girl whose parents name her Anita Brain. The death threat person can borrow it for her next one .

  87. Elissa, his resignation isn’t formal yet.

    It has to be read on the House floor.

    I posted an article about it at another post here an hour or so ago.

    He’s getting paid still & everything.

  92. Ahhh … finally, Weiner is no longer a U.S. Congressman:

    “The House has finally put to rest the sex scandal that dogged former Rep. Anthony Weiner and House Democrats for weeks.

    “Just after noon Thursday, the New York Democrat’s resignation letter was read on the floor, a largely unnoticed formality in what became a protracted process.

    Even after Weiner announced his resignation June 16, the scandal lingered as paperwork mistakes and other factors delayed closure for the chamber.”

  95. No problem Elissa. I didn’t realize that although Weiner’s resignation was supposed to be effective Tues at midnight, it actually wasn’t in effect until the letter was read on the House floor. I had coincidentally read an article this morning at Roll Call about missing paperwork etc. Sounded sketchy.

    At any rate, he’s history now. At least until he runs in the special election.

    Oh, btw, he & Huma were spotted yesterday – or was it today? shopping at a Whole Foods in DC. So much for going way for treatment.

    Comment by Miranda (4104db) — 6/23/2011 @ 10:50 pm

  96. ==…he and Huma were spotted…shopping at a Whole Foods in DC==

    Doesn’t Huma know that pregnant ladies are supposed to send their hubbies out at midnight to get the pickles and butter pecan ice cream? (Of course I suppose she may not trust him out of her sight.)

    Comment by elissa (1afff9) — 6/23/2011 @ 10:56 pm

  97. Miranda-

    From what I understand from media reports, Weiner can’t run in the special election unless the Democratic Party nominates him to run in it. Unless I’m missing something, hell will freeze over before they do that.

  100. The yahoo email headers don’t have anything interesting in them…

    Going by the IP’s Stranahan has listed, whoever is behind this is using this VPN service to be able to cloak their IP by city. Witopia rents out servers from other providers.

    http://www.witopia.net/index.php/products

    http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:6rPwVQAtuawJ:www.robtex.com/cnet/64.120.5.html+64.120.5.131&cd=7&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=us&client=firefox-a&source=www.google.com

    http://whois.domaintools.com/64.120.5.131

    I’ve noticed that whoever is behind this likes to use yahoo email addresses. It may be useful to see when they were created. Go to the “Can’t access my account page”, put in the ID, and there is a date on the security questions…

    Once you start monkeying with answering those questions you are using the method that Tennessee kid did with Palin’s account.
    Don’t recommend it for the obvious legal reasons.

    Comment by vor2 (68c8bb) — 6/24/2011 @ 3:44 am

  106. You would think that with all the death threats that the progressive camp sends they would have an automatic death threat generator that would send these things from some server farm in Mongolia.

    Ace is right to say this person will shortly become infamous. Hopefully Ms Pain will soon be unemployable.

    I wish this was more than morbidly funny. It isn’t. These death threats have become tiresome. All from the party of “peacenicks and doves.”

    Comment by Vivian Louise (bcd4a5) — 6/24/2011 @ 4:01 am

  107. About that header…

    Email header analyzer (http://www.mxtoolbox.com/Public/Tools/EmailHeaders.aspx)suggests:

    “best guess record for domain of alicia_pain18@yahoo.com designates 98.138.91.45 as permitted sender”

    This IP address
    (http://www.ip-adress.com/ip_tracer/98.138.91.45)

    is Sunnyvale, CA.

    Mean anything?

    That IP is one of Yahoo’s servers…

    Comment 112 is Colonel Haiku. He’s joking. He is a regular commenter.

  117. Thanks Patterico. I thought – uh oh – now a haiku sock, issuing death threats?

    We newbies don’t “know” all of the regulars. BTW I found your site through Stacy’s site The Other McCain which I regularly read.

    Yeah, I’d say Ace just hit the roof. Wow, did this idiot chose the wrong two people to threaten. A prosecutor, and someone with major hacker connections and who has now declared war and set the dogs on them.

    Comment by Robin (6b7cf0) — 6/24/2011 @ 2:45 pm

  124. About those email headers…. The sender’s public IP address ought to be revealed in the line above “X-Mailer:” but that IP is 98.138.83.201 and it belongs to yahoo.

    I’m scratching my head here. Unless Yahoo became an ISP, the sender was able to fully cloak their public IP.
