‘Speedway Bomber’: Criminal terrorist Brett Kimberlin was convicted in 1981


Investigative journalist Matthew Vadum reports a blockbuster: Brett Kimberlin, the convicted felon who terrorized an Indiana town during a weeklong 1978 bombing spree, has received funding from influential “progressive” foundations:

“Speedway Bomber” Brett Kimberlin . . . is a director and founder of the Justice Through Music Project, a seven year old Bethesda, Maryland-based 501c3 nonprofit entity. . . .
Kimberlin is the business partner of leftist blogger Brad Friedman … They are both involved with a group called Velvet Revolution which also receives funding from the Tides Foundation.
JTMP has received at least $70,000 in grants from the far-left Tides Foundation since 2006.
Another noteworthy donor is . . Barbra Streisand who has given JTMP at least $10,000 through her Barbra Streisand Foundation since 2006 . . .
Yet another is Teresa Heinz Kerry, wife of Sen. John Kerry (D-Massachusetts). Mrs. Kerry is CEO of the Heinz Family Foundation which has given JTMP at least $20,000 since 2006 . . .

A self-described “associate” of Democrat political consultant Neal Rauhauser, Kimberlin’s recent activities are under increased scrutiny because of his alleged harassment of blogger Aaron Worthing.

    I thought I recognized Neal Rauhauser’s name from an earlier story at iotw. I was right. These men are two faces of the same repulsive leftist turd.

    This was big news when I first moved to Indiana.

    Fox news has got a good article on this, from what I read he had an affair with an underaged girl and to prevent it, he was kept from her by his grandmother, she was shot to death.
    The bombings were a diversion for a murder. * bombings with 1 blowing a mans legs off and fingers, he committed suicide and his widow sued and won a judgement against him.

    He was convicted then released, lives with his mom, who also sued him, he can’t make any money because of a million dollar judgement against him, so like most liberals, started a not-for profit.

    He vowed to put people in jail like Karl Rove, Briebert and others. The scary thing is, he even posed with Rove once holding his daughter then his accomplice took a picture of Roves car and licence plate………okaaaaay, thats creepy.

    Due to a couple of other reads around the net, I’ve devoted a little time to following the story.
    This person runs this site (you may be startled by some names there):

    The whole story is pretty involved. Patterico has covered it here also: http://theothermccain.com/2012/05/18/who-warned-us-about-brett-kimberlin/

    More weirdness:http://davefromqueens2.blogspot.com/

    http://allergic2bull.blogspot.com/2012/05/how-brett-kimberlin-tried-to-frame-me_9842.html – This is from one person who tangled with him in court in January.

    If you have time to puzzle out all the angles (especially at the last link), please do so. The situation needs a very bright spotlight. The guy is a well funded busy beaver.

    Online bullying is only what Kimberlin says it is.
