Jean Schmidt's (R) campaign mgr caught using email address for bondage sex
Oh! This is rich! This is the campaign that's going after Hackett, the Iraq veteran running as a Dem in Ohio.

(snip)


After Jean Schmidt was embroiled in an ethics scandal, she turned right around and gobbled up the maximum contribution from the poster boy for corruption, Tom DeLay.

Since then, her supporters have been Swift Boating her opponent, smearing his service to try to score cheap political points.

Schmidt has focused her campaign on family values, but now it looks like her Campaign Manager may have used the internet to satisfy his bizarre sexual fetishes. If this is true, it is the ultimate in hypocrisy.

Here's how this whole thing came about. People who emailed the Schmidt campaign had their email's bounce back. The details of the bounce back showed that the email joe@jeanschmidt.com actually went to deanofcorn@aol.com . This is important because it shows that Schmidt Campaign Manager Joe Braun was using his AOL account for campaign purposes.

People googled this AOL account and apparently found that the same email account being used for the Schmidt campaign was also being used for a profile on a BDSM (bondage, discipline, sadomasochism -- think of the pawn shop in Pulp Fiction) website used by freaks to meet other freaks.

16. what a HYPOCRISY - Bush, Jean & repukes
Jean hates gays & people of "other" persuasions, but the standard doesn't apply to her campaign manager.

Bush has high moral values, brings blah blah standards to presidency, blah blah. He'll fire Rove if Rove is convicted of breaking the law.

The repukes are all about family values blah blah, Tom DeLay is indicted, but repukes make new laws so Tom can stay on.

Utterly disgusting !

108. Try looking through the site on alexa's internet archive:
http://web.archive.org/web /*/http://www.collarme.com

Mind you, if you try to use the collarme search function, it will return you to the actual current webpage. One would have to click and scroll through all of Ohio's listings on the archive version.

142. What the hell is he doing with corn? KINKEE PORN CORN?
Get Jeff Gannon on the phone, or some other Republican kinkoid, they can "straighten" us out on this.

If he was having sex with corn, I'd bet a doughnut hole it was Genetically Modified Corn, with the Republican gene added to be sure it emerged as KINKEE CORN

Emphatic Denial from Joe Braun
Posted by DavidNYC
http://www.swingstateproject.com/2005/07/emphatic_denia...

Editor's note: We have received the following emphatic denial from Joe Braun of the Schmidt campaign. At present, we are removing the materials in question. We will keep you apprised of any further developments in this story. We are printing Mr. Braun's denial in full.

I have reviewed the materials posted on your blog site that make outrageous and libelous allegations about me. I emphatically deny these allegations are true and demand that you remove them immediately from your website now that I have placed you on notice of their false nature. As you are aware, I am not a public official and you do not enjoy any type of qualified privilege to place patently untrue and malicious statements about me on your blog. I am an attorney who regularly lectures on libel and slander at a local school and am very aware of the current state of both Ohio and federal law in this area. If you will not remove these outrageous statements and retract them as unfounded I will pursue all legal avenues available, including but not limited to, an injunction in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Ohio seeking to have them removed and holding you libel for damages associated therewith.

Please be guided accordingly.

I would appreciate an immediate response.

Sincerely,

Joe Braun


~snip~
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
This repuke lawyer is full of shit.

Public official he is not, but public figure he may well be (campaign manager for another public figure-cum-official who has spoken to the press in an official capacity). The burden of proof is mostly on him to prove beyond a reasonable doubt not just that the statements were false, but that they were malicious... and, since he IS an attorney, who HAS lectured on the subject of libel, then one would think he KNOWS this. I think he does know -- he's counting on the ignorance of others and their quite-natural fear of reprisals.

111. Not much of a threat letter
If he can't tell the difference between "libel" and "liable" he must be a really shitty lawyer. If you're going to attempt to scare people with legalese, get it right or you'll look like an idiot.

"If you will not remove these outrageous statements and retract them as unfounded I will pursue all legal avenues available, including but not limited to, an injunction in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Ohio seeking to have them removed and holding you libel for damages associated therewith."

113. The News Blog got Braun's denial but is leaving the image on site
Here are his comments about the denial:

http://stevegilliard.blogspot.com/2005/07/time-to-get-s...


OK, if that is the case, can he explain how his e-mail address was linked to the aformentioned to both the campaign and the above post, which was immediately removed. While Mr. Braun is free to deny this, it would hardly meet the standard of libel, unless the e-mail address and campaign address were fraudlently created to tarnish him.

How can an AOL screenshot be defamatory? My first question is if he denying being the owner of the AOL address under his name and linked to the campaign website. If this is in error, it will be corrected. And if it was not him, why was the site removed within hours, and who removed it.

Just because he denies it does not mean it is either defamatory or reckless disregard of the truth. If Mr. Braun would provide some evidence, like his AOL records, then there would be every reason to withdraw the above article.

Unfortunately, I think Mr. Braun is rather unfamiliar with libel law, despite his claims. He is the campaign manager of a candidate for federal office. Which means he is NOT a private figure if he has spoken for the campaign. Which he has, and this directly relates to his employment.

However, this poorly worded threat from a "lawyer", especially one "expert" in libel law, should have mentioned how the post defamed him and how it is untrue.

Also, as a lawyer, he should know the first act in any legal action would be discovery, of not only his AOL records, but his health records, his computer records and bank and credit card records to determine if, at ANY time, he has paid for anything related to BDSM activity, including travel records.

Then, he does realize that he would be deposed as would all of his friends, family and employers, as well as former partners and dates.


Who would be asked detailed questions about his sex life. Because as a defense, one would have to prove he had engaged in ANY activity, from spanking to bondage, which could be construed as BDSM.

Because, he surely knows truth is an absolute defense for libel. And if he, even once, explored BDSM, any case would be rendered moot.

I think his embarassment is leading to his overreaction. Does he want to be the center of a national case which centers on his sex life? I seriously doubt it. But this is not anyone's fault but his own. As the campaign manager of a federal race, people are going to investigate his background. If both his personal e-mail address and campaign address are linked, and there are independent witnesses that there are, how can this be about anything but embarassment.

Mr. Braun is free to provide some factual evidence to back up his claims. At which time an apology and retraction will occur. Until then, his denials are just that, denials. There is every reason to believe that the statement is both true, factual and accurate.

such a big deal of what other people do in their private lives! They act like everyone has to legally lead a heterosexual, monogamous, suburban breeding, lifestyle. I read somewhere recently that some states are trying to make sex toys illegal.

a vibrator in Texas unless it's for "educational" purposes. It may be just a part of Texas, I saw it in a documentary at a GLBT film festival. It showed 2 of the Representatives who introduced the bill, which also included outlawing sodomy, shaking hands. Molly Ivans commented that "I guess that's the last time you'll see a dick touch an asshole in this state". :rofl:

Edited on Fri Jul-29-05 09:21 AM by BleedingHeartPatriot
stating that he's heterosexual...and if you make a public proclamation of your sexuality, well, as below.

I do not feel the need to take out an ad declaring I'm heterosexual and enjoy sex with women. I also do not feel the need to distribute photos of me expressing my love for a female. Why must homosexuals make the goings-on in their bedrooms public knowledge?

Homosexuals can do whatever turns them on within the confines of their bedrooms, but when they make a public proclamation of what they do and how they do it, they shouldn't bitch when people look at them funny.

Staff Columnist Joe Braun is a political science senior.


Yet, here is the profile assoc. with deanofcorn. And, yeah, well I would have to say I'm looking at him funny.

Props to George Oilwellian for posting the link to the annatopia blog.

My favorite from the blog, especially in light of the article above.


deanofcorn's profile, captured here in screenshot form (bitmap) is quite revealing. he joined the BDSM site on 8-2-2004 and posted this:

I am an experienced Dom seeking a sub for long term exploration and training.

oooo, kinky! his profile also states that he'll provide his "subs" ("submissives" for those not familiar with BDSM lingo) with living expenses. he enjoys hot waxing and keeping his subs naked and cuffed up for extended periods of time. but the best part is the "special skills" section, in which deanofcorn decribes his proficiency in "single tails" ("This dom reports that he is experienced with single-tail whips") and "Medical Exams" (This dom reports that he is experienced with staging medical/gynecological exams").


edited to add, not there's anything wrong with that. :o

If you are into S&M, that's your own business. I have no problems with consenting adults having fun with each other.

The reason this story is funny is that it once again shows the total hypocrisy of the RW. They condemn alternative lifestyles, but then turn around and beg for a spanking.

I can't claim to be in any BDSM community, but folks I know who are repeat "safe, sane, consensual" as a mantra. The Pulp Fiction description is a slander, as I see it.

the blogger this is linked to takes the same stance as you and thinks the "freaks" reference, etc is wrong, that BDSM is a matter of taste, and not perverted. The part quoted above is from Swing state project, and the News Blog just quoted it and added to it.

I was about to storm in and defend bdsm/leather honor, hehe.

As long as everyone stays focused on the hypocrisy it's fine by me to out these bastards. I just winced at the word "freak" in what ostensibly is a news piece. I don't have a problem with the word myself and I fly my freak flag proud but it smacks of judgementalism when used by people outside "the family" so to speak.

It's the hypocrisy, stupid!

which ended up linking that same e-mail account to both the campaign and his personal activities. Otherwise no one would have known. Piss poor judgment to not have a separate account for campaign if you ask me.

The age, location and screen name all match up and the collar me account dates to last year, so it's not something that was put up to embarass him during the campaign.


I don't really see how it's outing if it's just sitting on the internet to be found. It's not like someone was digging through his trash and found worn-out bondage gear or something.

85. Goddamnit, this isn't some academic exercise.
Hackett is still trailing and the election is Tuesday. We will never win if we keep playing by the old rules. Jesus, no one on the right is criticizing Schmidt for swiftboating Hackett.

Besides, it is the hypocrisy that makes this fair game. The Rs are always talking about how society is becoming increasingly vulgar. The activities that this guy is watching are actions that the right would like to outlaw. Also, he seemed to be using the company email account to go surfing.

99. I'm bound to get flamed for this
(No pun intended...maybe.) But it's unfortunate that the author had to resort to using terms like "bizarre sexual fetishes," and "freaks to meet other freaks."

The issue here should be the inappropriate use of a campaign account for personal ads, period. (BTW, I hope someone's verified the full e-mail headers on the evidence; it's very easy to fake someone else's return address. Spammers do it all the time, and then the person whose address has been used gets all the bounces.)

But then, I'm just a freak, so what do I know? :shrug:

I thought about that after I wrote my post. They totally need to be called on their hypocrisy, just like the Gannon scandal, since these are the people that lobby and legislate to take away our sexual freedoms, but it's okay for them to do it on the sly.

But we need to do it responsibly, attacking the hypocrisy and not the sexuality, or we just become them.

107. From scolding games to mocking sex, Dems explore their inner NASCAR driver
Yes, it's always nice to out enemy pols. But there's no joy in the deed when it's turned into an auto-da-fe of difference.

A trend is discernible of late, observable from the grass roots to the DLC suites.

Denigrating unpopular sexuality... Wagging fingers at video games... Trying to out-patriotism the Patriot Act crew with celebrations of the CIA... Hyperbolically flinging around the Coulteresque rhetoric of "treason"...

If you can't beat 'em, join 'em, apparently. The cultural NASCAR-ization of the party is growing. Another seedy triumph of Bushism: it's effectively cross-pollinating the "opposition."

116. Think for a second
Edited on Fri Jul-29-05 07:38 PM by OfireitupO
Im about as liberal as you come, but I also grew up on the internet and know that you can pretty easily frame someone by putting their email address on something like this and then say "Hey, look what this guys up to--it has to be him, its his email!"

Unless its one of those services that requires Email verification..

Dick Cheny that is! Since he loves the torture at Gitmo and Iraq and doesn't want to share the photos. Priceless!

128. It has been reported several times that Braun didn't want to go negative.
He and Schmidt apparently had a disagreement when the RNC came in and said they had to attack. I think this may be why he wanted to stay away from the attacks- because he knew he could be traced to these and possibly other websites and situations here in Cincy.

129. Hypocrisy?
When it happens to a democrat it's considered 'a personal issue'. When it happens to a republican it's a hypocrisy. There's other things we ought to be worried out.

Why are democrats being laughed out of congress? Because the only time we stand up and fight is when nobody cares. Stick to Karl Roves, stick to the war. Don't lower yourselves to their level.

130. Don't lower ourselves??? Don't make me laugh!!!
It works when THEY do it, and it will work for us too. I agree with the previous posters--the timing on this is absolutely wonderful, and I think we should take it and run with it.

135. I disagree
it's one thing to point out his hypocrisy, but making a political issue
out of this would mean implying that there is something wrong with the guy's sexual choice. and i personally *don't* think there's anything wrong with his sexual choice, nor do i think it's anyone's business. and that is what i always assumed to be the basic stance of progressives - a person's sex life is their own business. humiliating someone doesn't seem to fit with that ideal, imo.

really, i agree with the previous post - that there is much more important things to focus our energy and righteous indignation on.

unless it's possible to focus on the hypocrisy without any implication that he should be ashamed of his lifestyle choice.

136. I ALWAYS focus on the hypocrisy!
I could care less about his lifestyle. But keeping quiet about it would mean shooting ourselves in the foot, and I'm never in favor of that.

132. I heard Hacket on the Ed shultz show
I thought he was great. He has a lot of good ideas, and good ideals. I'm from California, but Ohio is important, too, given how they were screwed in the 2004 "election".

Support Hacket. Don't spend too much energy attacking his S-M opponent.

133. she likes RUSSIA more than the US, according to this quote:
''In 1995, she travelled to Russia to offer instruction about political campaigning in a country which had never had free elections. On her trip she ran in Moscow's Red Square. "Did I ever feel unsafe?" she said. 'No. And would I jog through Central Park in New York? No way.' ''

from Wikipedia

why does she hate America so much

she's nothing more than a redwing comsymp, if you axe me

139. I would be remiss if I didn't comment on the highly judgmental language
that is used in regards to bondage in this post. Clearly this is a relevent issue in this campaign since he comingled campaign and the bondage emails. But I don't like us calling them freaks. This article could have easily been written without the judgmental language.
