“WHY would Dick Head want to approach her even with a 10 foot pole?“
You bet (to answer the post title question)! Real easy too! I had previously blogged this post “Why does NH AG Richard Head want James O’Keefe emails from a third party without a subpoena?” where Dick Head was inquiring of a Nadia Naffe: “Hey, you’ve got James O’Keefe’s emails”? Remember, at the time of the post, James O’Keefe was supposed to be the Keynote Speaker at the Rye Republican event. The night before, NH AG Dick Head issued a criminal grand jury subpoena against him, so under advice of counsel, James ended up Skyping in instead of being there in person. Well, right after that, we got wind that Dick Head had contacted a Nadia Naffe concerning what she said were emails belonging to James O’Keefe (see the post). Also, this Nadia was already doing some stuff against O’Keefe, as Patterico outlines, and the RNC.
So, what does this have to do with NH AG Dick Head and Brett Kimberlin? Well, Grok friend John Hawkins of RightWingNews interviewed Stacy McCain who because of his investigative journalistic blogging about Brett Kimberlin, had to leave his home in Maryland to an undisclosed location as Kimberlin started to call his wife’s employer in an attempt to force Stacy to quit the story. Well, there was a mention of Nadia in that interview:
(Hawkins’ Note: One thing I found to be EXTREMELY interesting in looking back through these tweets is that I realized Nadia Naffe, who went to court and made some extremely dubious claims about James O’Keefe based on almost nothing, is connected to Ron Brynaert, who’s tied in with Brett Kimberlin. Her twitter account is also one of only 215 people following @BreitbartUnmask. Given the type of tactics that Kimberlin and his allies use, that really throws up some ENORMOUS red flags about the veracity of her allegations against O’Keefe.)
I read that long post by Patterico in shock that Kimberlin was going “everything in” the intimidation book (calling his employer with false allegations, his wife’s employer, spreading rumors – go read the post). SWATting is when a terrorist spoofs the victim’s phone number, calls into the police that a horrible crime is being committed that requires a SWAT team response at the home – and in Patterico’s case, he could have died. So Stacy had a real good reason for bugging out for the safety of his family; a case, once again, where the Left is not content in arguing in the arena of ideas. Nope; because they see conservatives as evil, they wish to isolate and silence them. And she was playing a role in it:
Nadia Naffe’s civil claim against me — Nadia Naffe has now filed a civil claim against me and my boss Steve Cooley — and the lawyer is Jay Leiderman, an online buddy of Neal Rauhauser’s who put out a request on a defense attorney mailing list to investigate whether any defense attorneys don’t like me. Although I have not seen the legal claim myself, excerpts of Naffe’s legal claim have appeared at the web site of self-described Kimberlin supporter and Rauhauser friend BreitbartUnmasked.com. Before the claim was filed, Rauhauser and @BreitbartUnmasked encouraged Naffe to file the sorts of claims that appear in the civil claim.
Naffe has publicly said that she plans to use her lawsuit against me to ask questions in discovery about the value of my house — a topic in which Rauhauser and @OccupyRebellion have expressed interest in the past. According to a friend of mine, Naffe has also said that she plans to ask me and my wife under oath the true identity of conservative blogger Ace of Spades. Which is not something she ought to care about, since Ace had never said a word about her (although he has now).
Given what seems to be close connection between Naffe and Kimberlin as I read through all of today’s blogburst* on Brett Kimberlin, So I ask again:
WHY would Dick Head want to approach her even with a 10 foot pole?
* blogburst- used to happen more a few years ago, but it is when LOTS of blogs decided to home in on a single topic – or in this case, a person.
