Patterico's Pontifications

Is the New Hampshire A.G. Investigating James O’Keefe Working with Brett Kimberlin Associate Neal Rauhauser?

Filed under: General,Nadia Naffe — Patterico @ 7:38 am

If these emails are genuine, it seems that way:

You list Patterico on your blog roll. He has been investigated twice for harassment, but slipped both times. He did NOT slip a civil suit from Nadia Naffe, a former employee of James O’Keefe. I set up the lawyer for her after Pat Frey posted her medical records and social security number online. No question it was him – he used his wife’s account and did it during work hours from the offices of the Los Angeles County District Attorney. See the attached documents about Frey & Naffe for proof such things are happening. [Like much of what Neal writes, this paragraph is packed with falsehoods. -- Ed.]

Frey did that because James O’Keefe is facing a state grand jury in New Hampshire. I know this because I talked to the Associate AG in charge of it, and then I hand carried a letter from him into an injunction hearing in New Jersey. Nadia wouldn’t release what she has on O’Keefe without paperwork, the AG was in trial and only had 48 hours to respond, while an out of state subpoena takes a week, so I carried the water for them. I’ve attached a copy of that letter for your reading enjoyment.

If the emails are genuine — and they read very much like Neal Rauhauser’s unique writing style — then they appear to reveal a close working relationship between Brett Kimberlin associate Neal Rauhauser and the New Hampshire Attorney General investigating James O’Keefe.

Someone should call the New Hampshire Attorney General and ask the Assistant Attorney General who wrote the letter, Richard Head (actual name), if Rauhauser’s claims are true.

By the way, a screenshot of part of that letter from Richard Head appeared on the web site of close Kimberlin associate Breitbart Unmasked, on the morning of the hearing.

The emails also reveal that Kimberlin associate Rauhauser put Nadia Naffe up to filing a civil claim against me and my boss, by arranging for her to be represented by Jay Leiderman, a lawyer who has represented at least one figure allegedly from the hacking group Anonymous.

Does any of this seem like news to anybody?

  2. This is Neal’s version of events to someone whom he hopes will be helpful to him.

    Frey did that because James O’Keefe is facing a state grand jury in New Hampshire. I know this because I talked to the Associate AG in charge of it,

    He probably really did talk.

    and then I hand carried a letter from him into an injunction hearing in New Jersey.

    That might be a known fact.

    Nadia wouldn’t release what she has on O’Keefe without paperwork, the AG was in trial and only had 48 hours to respond, while an out of state subpoena takes a week, so I carried the water for them.

    Now the story as to why may not be the truth.

  3. Dick Head working with a dickhead. Reality imitates a bad movie.

  4. Is it not the that that Nadia’s deposition was not under seal and was part of published court recorda attached to litigation initiated by herself, and that deposition is part of the record based on a motion she brought to delay/have another bite of the apple?

    Sarahw (b0e533)

  5. “Is it not the case that”

    Sorry, I’m getting over the grippe.

    Sarahw (b0e533)

  6. Why would Richard Head associate himself with someone carrying water for a con-man psychopath who liked to set off bombs, and got sent back to prison for actively avoiding making court-ordered amends for blowing a guys leg to flinders and spraying the same guy with schrapnel that was still working its way out of that person’s body when he committed suicide because of the pain and disability resulting from that bomb? A bomb set to go off in a high-school parking lot on game day, targeted at kids?

    A guy suspected of arranging the murder of the grandmother who tried to separate him from a tween/early teen girl he took unescorted to places Mexico and a Disney theme park without her mother or any other adult? A man who the mother told a coworker he had romantic interest in the child. A man who told Mark Singer that he appeared regularly in the nude before said child?

    It’s disgusting.

    Sarahw (b0e533)

  7. Based on a report by Breitbart, the “Big Guns” are now getting involved. Senator Mitch McConnell will be making a major speech which will include mention of Kimberlin’s terrorism:

    Sen. McConnell drew special attention to allegations that certain left-wing activists have been SWATting their political enemies. “I know you’ve been right on top of that story,” he said of Breitbart News. “I think those reports are incredibly disturbing and need to be fully investigated, and I hope we can get somebody in the majority position of the House to take a look at it. There’s somebody I’ve heard about named Brett Kimberlin, who is a left-wing terrorist that I know many people feel may be behind the SWATting. That’s strictly illegal, and should be investigated.”

    “They are trying to shut up their critics,” McConnell said. “I want to stiffen the spines of those who are out there. Do not be afraid of this crowd. Don’t let them scare you. Every American has a right to organize, to speak, to contribute to causes they believe in. The best way to stop them would be to defeat them in the election this November.”

    It’s time for Kimberlin and friends to crawl back under their rocks.

  8. Why are there so many crooked/corrupt lawyers in and just outside of government, and I include Judges in this.

    PCD (1d8b6d)

  9. If your last name is Head and your parents named you Richard, would that be grounds for a law suit when you turned 18?

    BarSinister (664312)

  10. 8-corruption is everywhere. The incorrupt lawyer/judge is ignored so evidence mounts suggesting corruption as a rule and not an exception. It is an illusion.

    tye (4c1603)

  11. You believe what Rauhauser’s claiming?

    Now I’m not sure who’s crazier.

    Imagine how much worse things are with an ideologically extreme and corrupt person like Eric Holder, etc, in positions of authority. Or a person in the White House who has been regularly defying the concept of checks and balances.

    The makings of a Banana Republic — or similar to the city of Detroit, Michigan writ large — with an extra dash of Hugo Chavez-iation thrown in for good measure.

    Mark (880753)

  13. It’s time for Kimberlin and friends to crawl back under their rocks.

    Unfortunately, given their history, this means they will escalate. I mean, what kind of idiot attempts to cover up a murder with bombs?!

    Rob Crawford (04f50f)

  14. 12-not all judges were appointed by the current administration.

    tye (4c1603)

  15. “…this means they will escalate.”

    I’d LOVE to see these wad-dribbles try SWATing Mitch McConnell!

    PPs43 (af65ec)

  16. Maybe this is why Kimberlin and Rauhauser feel protected at the moment. Although its still a bit bizarre why, the AG in New Hampshire can’t protect them from the consequences of their actions.

    SPQR (26be8b)

  17. If you’re willing to partner with someone like Neal or Brett just because you have a common enemy, your goal is not justice. Your goal is probably to make a name for yourself ruthlessly.

    But I think it’s only fair for Richard Head to explain himself what’s going on.

    That letter of his was pretty outrageous in my opinion. What kind of law enforcement demands all your private emails without a subpoena or warrant just because someone stole them from you? That’s not normal.

    I mean, what kind of idiot attempts to cover up a murder with bombs?!

    The bombs were probably not intended to kill people or even injure anybody – but they were designed to attract the attention of law enforcement.

    “There’s no rhyme or reason to this thing. Police headquarters could be next,” Chief Copeland said…..As it happened, however, the next explosion destroyed Carl DeLong’s right leg.

    AND with that the bombings stopped.

    - Citizen K, page 91.

    Also, another motive, maybe some of the surveillance, which was disrupting Kimberlin’s marijuana business, might cease.

    Besides, the alibi and defense could be planned better.

    Sammy Finkelman (8a20da)

  20. Excellent analysis icy. Please tell me more. Are you carrying jd’s jock today?

    tye (4c1603)

  21. Sammy, indeed, Brett has a major drug operation going on and was under surveillance for other crimes.

    So with all that heat on him, he creates a crime wave with no link to Brett.

    Except he did it so poorly there were a lot of links to Brett. Timers, explosives, photo, impersonation of government official, etc etc etc. But the idea was that this other crime wave would be so awful that police would be focused on it.

    And it worked. They solved that crime.

    Dustin (330eed)

  22. 12-not all judges were appointed by the current administration.

    I don’t believe Mark ever wrote that they were. Perhaps you can point that passage out?

    I’m fully aware that even non-liberal politicians, including presidents, may get hoodwinked by or be foolish when it comes to David-Souter type jurists. Hello, George Bush Sr! So just think of how much worse things are when a decisionmaker with strong leftist instincts (eg, President “Goddamn America”) is managing things and making appointments.

    Mark (880753)

  24. not all judges were appointed by the current administration.

    Indeed, not all judges are appointed by any administration.

    Milhouse (312124)

  25. Patrick, I may be misreading your post, and the evidence. But the fact that Neal says a fact is true does not, to me, represent probable cause — or even reasonable suspicion — that the fact is true.

    Of course, you are a Deputy DA, and I am a defense attorney. It is possible that our views of probable cause and reasonable suspicion diverge.

    Ken (2e87a6)

  26. Michelle Malkin is reporting via Twitter that all criminal charges against Aaron Walker have been dropped. Not sure if that includes the order to not blog about BK. Sorry for no link. Not good at that. This also posted on A Walker thread below.

    Ipso Fatso (7434b9)

  27. But the fact that Neal says a fact is true does not, to me, represent probable cause — or even reasonable suspicion — that the fact is true.

    Ken makes a good point.

    Though I can’t say I understand Mr Head’s behavior, it’s possible the document is an utter forgery.

    And if it’s not, it’s still possible Neal is inflating his role in a way that plays off the biases of his enemies to send them just enough off track.

    Who knows? All I know is that Neal’s word is not worth anything, as Ken seems to also note.

    Dustin (330eed)

  28. Ken, I’d be surprised if Patterico believes anything that Neal writes; however, reading between the lines can reveal some interesting tidbits that Neal probably does not realize he is revealing.

  29. When did Obama say “goddamn america”? Be specific. Provide links.

    tye (4c1603)

  30. He didn’t, his mentor did. Same diff.

    Milhouse (312124)

  31. Yes, assume it is not true and work out from there.

    I wish the letter to be a forgery. Lately my confidence in most prosecutors being as ethical as the ones I know has taken a few blows.

    Sarahw (94ea7a)

  32. I think that Obama says “goddamn america” (or something similar) every time he looks at his dropping personals, tye.

    I think this, I don’t know it. But I do think it.

    Pious Agnostic (7c3d5b)

  33. tye, my point — as proven by your most recent post — is that lobbing non sequiturs does not pass for engaging in honest debate. Feel free to voice an actual opinion on the subject of this thread at any time.

    Icy (b3c882)

  34. Patrick, I’m curious. Is there anything that Nadia Naffe has submitted against you that can be made public? Or other than the mailer that you got, have you gotten anything that you can confirm that can’t be made public?

    Kaitian (da9520)

  35. No. You did not have a point other than lobbing stupid accusations without any actual logic or proof.

    tye (4c1603)

  36. tye:
    what is the difference among these 3 statements? IOW, what do 2 of these statements have in common, and the third does not:

    When did Palin say she could see Russia from her back porch?

    When did BHO say he would bankrupt the coal companies and explode citizen electric bills?

    When did BHO say he wanted to spread the wealth around to Joe the Plumber?

    john b (113909)

  37. The bombs were probably not intended to kill people or even injure anybody

    I think depraved indifference rather than intent.

    geoffb (1f4c30)

  38. Is it even plausible that the AG’s office would utilize a citizen from outside their office, and outside their State, in such a manner?

    JD (95e569)

  39. Hey jd: john b is still “butt hurt” over the 2008 election. He is being mandydouchtery.

    tye (4c1603)

  40. May I plead with all and sundry not to use the word “utilize” when the perfectly serviceable “use” is available? Please?

    Dianna (f12db5)

  41. Parking lot, game day. Singer describes the schrapnel packed into the bomb as less lethal than those that went off before….but that bomb was likely to go off around people and hurt them.

    Rob Crawford (04f50f)

  46. No, tye is just a troll trying to derail the topic … which is whether or not a state Attorney General has associated himself with the Brett Kimberlin crime family or just made the mistake of talking to one of them.

    I’m starting to think that the answer is not that the AG is cohabitating with Rauhauser and Kimberlin. I think that Rauhauser is fronting for Naffe explicitly.

    SPQR (26be8b)

  47. 45-I responded to a comment that was made to me. If you have a problem with the off-topic comment take it up with john b, biff.

  48. 9. If your last name is Head and your parents named you Richard, would that be grounds for a law suit when you turned 18?

    Comment by BarSinister — 6/15/2012 @ 8:34 am

    On what grounds?

    Given the evidence as to how he turned out, his parents were merely prescient.

    From the nonce I vow to endeavor to utilize “use.”

    Steve57 (c441a6)

  50. It’s time for Kimberlin and friends to crawl back under their rocks.

    And, when they do, we should build some of Teh Won’s vaunted infrastructure over those rocks.

    AD-RtR/OS! (b8ab92)

  51. Steve57 #51 – it should be “utilise” (and “endeavour”), anyway, you barbarian ex-colonials ! (*sniff*)

    Alasdair (19af85)

  52. I wish Alasdair posted more often. We should all endeavour to encourage that. We should utilise all the tools at our disposal.

  54. If Rauhauser name drops the New Hampshire AG’s office and it’s not true why is he doing it? I would think the NH AG would be concerned with his good name then. He’s got a Speedway Bomber scaming people into thinking New Hampshire supports him and his friends.

    If Rauhauser is actually telling the truth, which is unlikely he is saying that NH AG is legally assisting him?

    Now the AG may not have a clue who Rauhauser is. And most likely Rauhauser dropped names to get an audience and an ear. But I expect an AG not to have the wool pulled over their eyes so easily.

    It adds to the reputation of that state as being gullible. they have a problem there being weak on the prosecution of sex offenders. (From old Bill O’reilly shows) Or maybe that explains everything?

    scable (40a8c6)

  55. Well from the email, Neal seems to be conflating Kimberlin’s claims with Dugan;s subsequent fate,

    narciso (494474)

  56. …reputation of that state as being gullible. …

    Seems that list of states is steadily growing.

  57. Patterico: I’ve finally worked my way down the alphabet to the P’s! Thank you for the linky-love and in general being accepting of this old reprobate. You are a prince among men.
    Seriously! I wasn’t referring to you in any way shape or form when I wrote: http://anexconsview.wordpress.com/2012/06/16/petulant-musings-on-a-saturday-morning/

  58. Patrick, is there anything to Naffe’s claim that you posted her medical records and social security number online?

    I’d really like to hear your side of the story.

    Stogie (466903)

  59. Stogie – IIRC, at best, it is an exaggeration. He posted a publicly available transcript of one of her many depositions, in which her SSN resided. He quickly redacted when he became aware. Also, IIRC, the whole medical records nonsense comes from the deposition, where she discusses he medical history.

    JD (318f81)

  60. JD, thanks! I posted a story about Nadia Naffe and I will add that info to it.

    I figured it must be some kind of B.S. and it appears I was right.

    Stogie (466903)

  61. You can look through the archives here to fine the NN posts in question, as well as the transcripts at issue. Don’t trust my recall ;-)
