As we talk about Brett Kimberlin — the unrepentant Speedway Bomber I feature in this video — it’s important to realize that Kimberlin doesn’t act alone as a leftist activist. He has a partner named Brad Friedman, who runs the BradBlog.
Here’s Freidman’s short bio from the BradBlog.
Velvet Revolution’s other co-founder is Brett Kimberlin. I can’t find any explanation that Friedman has given for why he’s working with Brett Kimberlin or who he feels about Kimberlin’s violent criminal past and complete lack of remorse for his victims.
Friedman considers himself an expert on issues related to voter integrity but his focus seems to be very partisan. He attacks Voter ID efforts and attacks Republicans at every opportunity. Friedman is taken seriously on the left.
His Wikipedia entry says:
Based on his advocacy at The BRAD BLOG and in other publications, he was invited to testify at theElection Assistance Commission‘s Voting Advocate Roundtable Discussion. Friedman is a noted advocate of a return to paper balloting and of the role of bloggers as journalists. he has been described in the New York Times as “perhaps the most dogged critic of electronic voting machine technology in the blogosphere”.
He is featured in numerous documentary films, interviewed as an investigative journalist, and expert in issues of election integrity and voting systems. Among the films in which he appears: Phil Donahue & Ellen Spiro’s Body of War, David Earnhardt’s Uncounted: The New Math of American Elections, Dorothy Fadiman‘s Stealing America: Vote by Vote and Patty Sharaf’s Murder, Spies & Voting Lies: The Clint Curtis Story.
