Regarding this thread offering a reward: "VelvetRevolution and its co-founder Justice Through Music are offering a $250,000 reward for information about vote fraud..."

I did a bit of looking around, because: Don't we have to be careful who we associate with??!!?

I was curious about 'Justice Through Music' as co-founder of VR.

The mailing address for Velvet Revolution and Justice Through Music is one same Post Office Box.

Justice Through Music Project's 2005 year-end 990 shows $33,878 on hand at end of accounting year 2005. So might I assume Velvet Revolution's contrubution to the 'Reward' is $225,000 or so?

The Director (and only paid employee) of Justice Through Music is Brett Kimberlin.

Brett Kimberlin, sentenced to fifty years for drug distribution and eight bombings in Indiana... is the infamous "Speedway Bomber". He bragged of smuggling and dealing literally tons of drugs.

Kimberlin was serving time for placing and detonating a series of explosive devices in Sept. 1978 in Speedway, Indiana. In the most serious incident, Kimberlin left a gym bag in the parking lot of the Speedway High School. Carl Delong picked up the bag and the explosives detonated, tearing off his lower right leg and two fingers. Delong's wife also suffered serious injury from bomb fragments. Kimberlin is also serving time for other offenses, including impersonating a federal officer, illegal use of the Department of Defense insignia, illegal use of the Presidential seal, receipt of explosives, and conspiracy to distribute marijuana.

In fact, after being convicted of the Speedway, Indiana bombings, he sued the widow of one of his bombing victims for "violating his constitutional rights."

Kimberlin is a well known character, after a book was written about him:

Citizen K: The Deeply Weird American Journey of Brett Kimberlin
by Mark Singer

"This book relates a journalist's worst nightmare: of getting deeply involved in a "big story" based on information from a single source who turns out to be a world-class liar."

"Kimberlin turns out to be a top-flight con man."

"A book about a true psychopath..."

Maybe the bomber, "world class liar", "top-flight con man", dope smuggler, drug dealer has turned over a new leaf (though there are plenty of marijuana links on JTM site).

Is it smart to have our cause of election reform tied to a known, convicted bomber?
