Late breaking Exclusive DU: Kaplans twitter reveals distaste for Ras, affection for O'Keefe

His twitter account has been identified and appears genuine as it has pictures of his son on them consistent with other photos, by someone named clownseven (ironically Kaplan's last comment at DU he was called a clown and made a comment "from a clown"

I would guess that just about anybody can now see that Gravis Marketing was a set up from the beginning.

The guy doesn't even like to be robo called, lol.

I am travelling tomorrow and cannot read it all but here are a couple of interesting

excerpts

There are a lot of pro Israel postings like this one, probably 90% are related to Israeli issues:

1. Actually he has a son....

I posted his Facebook link and another of his websites on the other post you had.

That's his Friendfeed because he says on his Facebook account he loves dobermans and that's a doberman on that friendfeed account.

9. That answers one of the questions "When did Garvis start?" Jan 10th



His interview on Russian English Language station was only 11 days later January.

Wow that is a great find.

I wonder what Nate Silver will think about a national pollster who spent all of his time before his launch watching Casey Anthony on HLN.

what a find.

13. It's beginning to sound more and more like he was hired in January

like James O'Keefe was hired way back when, to do this 'work'. I wonder if his financial situation has improved since January?

He's tweeting O'Keefe, respects Beck, hates Wikileaks and Carter etc. This is definitely a Right Winger who most likely was hired to do this 'work' just in time for the election. However, he doesn't sound smart enough to have accomplished his new found 'fame' on his own.

Great work outing this guy.

Has anyone else picked up on it yet? How about Nate, anyone send it to him or to Rachel Maddow or Current. I wish Keith was still on the air. He is on twitter and does have a huge following, maybe I will try to get it to him on Twitter and others should also.

And I have difficulty believing believing he is actually. Conducting any polls.

I'm doing some very early morning work here in Houston (still moping about the Texans game), and I might take a little detour to see what is up with our friend Douggy.

12. Don't know if you already had this stuff.

Registered Agent for Gravis Marketing is Bobby Hyel of Winter Springs, Florida.

At Mr. Hymel's Manta address, it notes that he does "aggressive" criminal defense and also that:

Bobby works at:
Predictive Concepts
205 W State Road 434 # C
Winter Springs, FL 32708-5329
Phone: (407) 327-9910
About:
Predictive Concepts in Winter Springs, FL is a private company which is listed under computer services. Current estimates show this company has an annual revenue of $500,000 to $1 million and employs a staff of 1 to 4.


Bobby's Colleagues at Predictive Concepts

Chad Miller

http://www.manta.com/g/mmd94gv/bobby-hymel



Gravis Marketing is listed as a for-profit corporation in the state of Florida. It was formed on April 26, 2010. From the beginning, it has always had the following directors/officers:

President

Officer/Director Detail
Name & Address
Title D,P (President)
KAPLAN, DOUG
1931 SOUTH PRAISE DUNES
OVIEDO FL 32765 US

Title D,S (Secretary)
MILLER, CHAD
1165 CITRUS OAKS RUN
WINTER SPRINGS FL 32708 US

Title D,T (Treasurer)
HYMEL, BOBBY
312 INGLENOOK CR
WINTER SPRINGS FL 32708 US

From the Articles of Incorporation, there is little additional information, except that the incorporator's name is:

David Surina
931 W. 75th Street
Ste. 137-317
Napierville, IL 60565

In an amendment filed in 2010, the only relevant information is the potential coding to the email for the company and its people. Mr. Hymel's email is listed as bhymel@gravismarketing.com

Mr. Kaplan is also president of Basalt Systems Inc., another Florida Corporation set up on the same day as Gravis Marketing. Basalt has the same address, just a different suite number (1330 instead of 1042).

Also, the Florida Department of Financial Services does not show either Basalt Systems or Gravis marketing as being a current subscriber to workers compensation, a fact that would tend to support few/no employees (granted, if they do have folks calling or compiling results from calls, such workers often are listed a "contract employees" to allow their employers to shirk the burden of paying workers compensation, taxes, etc.).

OK, I gotta go back to work.

17. Yes he has a very strong Pro Israel interest and on his other twitter it appears that

he was obsessed with the Casey Anthony story and had dozens of tweets about that right up until he suddenly launched Gravis Marketing.
