Patterico's Pontifications


Today’s Quote from Citizen K: The Book About Convicted Bomber and Perjurer Brett Kimberlin

Filed under: Brad Friedman,Brett Kimberlin,General,Neal Rauhauser — Patterico @ 11:26 pm

Today’s quote discusses the convicted bomber’s lawsuit for insufficiently provocative porn:

For a while, Kimberlin had a sideline selling dirty pictures, courtesy of a former prisoner and client who got the stuff from a retail vendor in Chicago. Kimberlin described it as “very good quality, full-color — anal, oral, you know, three-way, everything like that.” Its shelf life, however, was not infinite. “I didn’t know what to do with all of them,” he said. “You know, you can only jack off to a magazine once or twice. I mean, you get bored with it. I took them with me when I went to Oxford [a federal prison in Wisconsin]. I had eighty-seven of these damn things. It was a whole box full. So I got up there and some black guy saw me reading some and he said, ‘Hey, you want to sell any of those?’ And then this white guy said, ‘Do you want to sell any of those?’ And I thought: Well, I’d rather sell them to the white guy than the black guy. So I told the white guy, ‘Look, can you sell very many?’ And he said, ‘Sure, I can sell as many as you got. You give them to me for one-third of the cover price. I’ll sell them for one-half of the cover price.’ So he was the porno king on the compound. And he made his spending money. And my friend kept sending me the porno from Chicago. I probably made about four or five grand on the damn stuff. Brett Kimberlin, porn dealer. Can you believe it?”

The book goes on to describe how Kimberlin picked a new supplier when the old one went to prison. But the new supplier turned unsatisfactory.

In January 1987, in federal court in Madison, Wisconsin, Kimberlin sued Crest Paragon Productions, alleging false advertising, breach of contract, mail fraud, conspiracy, and violations of the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO). According to the complaint, instead of the thirty magazines and sixteen books Kimberlin expected when he responded to a back-of-the-book advertisement placed by Crest Paragon, he was sent “fifteen pamphlets and three paperback books of low quality.” He described this material to me as “real old four-by-six black-and-white pictures that looked like they were from the 1960s and came from England.” The tepid paperbacks had titles like Making a Score and Coed Habitation.

Kimberlin complained to author Mark Singer that his $150,000 lawsuit was dismissed by “a fucking Reagan appointee,” and he didn’t feel like paying the filing fee to appeal it to the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals.

Singer says that Kimberlin “filed more than a hundred lawsuits and motions in the federal courts on his own behalf.”

UPDATE: Quote from Kimberlin fan @OccupyRebellion:

It’s all about political terrorism.

  1. First in a series.

    Our motto: “You keep harassing us, we keep telling the truth.”

  2. Today’s lesson from Brett Kimberlin: always prefer the white man to the black man.

  3. This is going to be a great series P. You couldn’t make this guy up, he’s that strange and creepy.

  4. “I never did give them hell. I just told the truth, and they thought it was hell.”

    –President Harry S. Truman

    We’ll keep giving him truth. He’ll call it hell (and harrassment!)

  5. noodles, you could make him up, the problem is people would think it was unrealistically one dimension in his evilness.

  6. Everyone should pay their 18 cents for Brett’s book. He should have no problem with anyone talking about any of it because he is profiting off it.

  7. @ Aaron. That part in your post before you snatched his Ipad, he came off as a classic movie villain A-hole in my mind.

    Noodles (3681c4)

  8. noodles at 6

    well the good news is that the book is out of print, so you can only buy it from second-hand sellers. So kimberlin gets nothing–assuming he gets royalties anyway, which might not be the case.

  9. gotta love the Occutards threatening people…

  10. “Maybe we should collect all you Breitbots together and shove those lawsuits down your fucking throats.”

    Good luck with the collecting, Sheridan. My guess is you’d soil yourself after attempting to roust the first houseful with your mom’s minivan full of super mega elite occutard shock troopers.

  11. Brett is into porn too. Hmm. The whole Weinergate thing began with porn people. Mike Stack and Darrah Ford were feuding heavy prior to the pics going out. Porn and transgender issues seems to be a common thread with the anonymiss crowd too. Darrah is very involved with Neal Rauhauser with the occupy and anonymiss stuff. Neal was into porn as well. Is Neal Darrah? Is Brett Kimberlin Darrah Ford? The writing styles (highly reactive) seem so similar. I feel like Dan Wolfe was Neal or Brett. I think Mike Stack got set up due to revenge of Darrah (Brett/Neal) They all write like paranoids. Darrah seems to have disappeared just as the swatting was occurring. Her reasons for disappearing sounded like Dan Wolfes excuse for staying silent. Now, Dan Wolfe is gone. All the harrassment involves the same three people using socks.

  12. Terrible post, Pat. I pounded my Kimberlin for hours, and got no relief.

    Expect to hear from my lawyer.

  13. Dan – If you have a Kimberlin lasting more than four hours, you’re supposed to call your doctor, at least that’s what the advertisements say, unless you’re enjoying it.

  14. Oh please start the revolution soon, #Occu-tards! We need a target-rich environment of willing doofuses. Punching holes in “Zombie” paper with JHP is fun, but gets old.!

  15. my lawyer is Dan Wesson: you really don’t want to hear from him.

  16. I learned something today. There was a fundraising walk in our little river town on behalf of autism. Commendable idea but the city decided, in its infinite wisdom, to close off First Street…the one with all the boat launch ramps.

    It’s 85 degrees, the sun is shining and Sis and I have had plans for a week to go fishing. Now we can’t get to any of the six ramps in town. We finally found one of our local policemen and asked him where we could launch the boat. “Anywhere off First Street,” he said. “The walkers should be done by now.”

    Wrong. Not only weren’t they done, one of the watchers started shouting at us that the road was closed. Having just been directed down there by the cops, I was in no mood for a lecture from a citizen. I leaped out of the car and started toward her. When she realized I was actually going to confront her, a look of panic came over her face, she backed up two steps and said, “Oh, just go back to your boat.”

    I did, but not before advancing ten more feet and informing her that we had been directed there by the police and if she had a problem with that she could discuss it with them.

    If you take it to these liberal whiners they retreat muy pronto.

  17. Thanks, daleyrocks, I will consult a physician on call.

  18. And I thought: Well, I’d rather sell them to the white guy than the black guy.

    Mark Singer notes this without comment. Maybe he thought Brett Kimberlin used this as a tie-breaker.

    I was reading this over the weekend (without knowing you posted it) and I thought this might strike a choird with you because you’d noted this kind oif thing other polaces.

    I don’t think Brett Kimberlin was being racist over here. He was simply going by machine politics – or more exactly really – Chicago Outfit principles – that the more points a person has in common with you, the better the chances he can be trusted.

    Sammy Finkelman (d22d64)

  19. Uh, no, choosing to give preference to one person over another based on skin color is racism. A person’s skin color is as irrelevant as their eye color, hair color, or the length of the second toe on their right foot.
