The individuals in the title have been deeply involved in this apparently scripted hoax. Such people are in line to generate income based on this story. Larisa does so through creating an image of herself as an intrepid reporter with the gravitas to write up stories that the mainstream media ignores. That's her schtick.
Brad Friedman and Brett Kimberlin own The Velvet Revolution. They solicit donations for their alleged ability to find whistleblowers, most notably those with information leading to possible convictions for election fraud. They have received funding from noted new age philanthropist Lori Grace, one of the heirs to the Oliver Grace estate. They may also receive revenue from Kimberlin's wealthy aunt, another philanthropist named Harriet Crosby. Lord knows how much money Velvet Revolution and BradBlog have raked in from gullible contributors. Cliff Arnebeck is a Velvet Revolution attorney. He has also been litigating the King Lincoln Bronzewell lawsuit contending the 2004 Ohio Presidential election was stolen.
While these people would be better off backing off with their promotion of the Michael Connell threatened by Rove hoax, Brad Friedman continues to tempt fate by pushing the absurdity that Connell may have been murdered by Rove. By doing so, I believe he is asking to be investigated for fraud. If myself and some others could have easily seen through this nonsense, it wouldn't take much for proper authorities to understand there is no substance to this story, and that all the primary players pushing it are closely related to one another.
A few days ago Brad published yet another article on this hoax.
''Maxim' Feature on Death of Bush/Rove/GOP IT Guru Mike Connell is Now Posted Online

I will give Maxim Magazine credit for one thing. They appropriately filed this story in their humor section. I don't want this to be seen as myself being insensitive to the Connell family. I'm just saying this whole situation is a stupid joke. And it's not even funny. Appropriately enough, this is the banner that lies atop the article:
The only new bit of info I picked up from this article is that Kimberlin "whistleblower" Stephen Spoonamore used to work for the FBI.
With his wiry hair and designer glasses, Spoonamore looks like a character in a Tim Burton movie. A lifelong Republican, he is also one of the world’s acknowledged experts on cybersecurity, with a résumé that includes work for the U.S. armed forces and the FBI. In his spare time he has devoted thousands of hours to investigating cyberfraud in American elections. “I know I sound crazy when I talk about this stuff. No one wants to believe it. They say, ‘No one would steal an election.’ And I go, ‘Yeah, they would. And that’s exactly what they did.’ ”
Larisa Alexandrovna appears to have become scared and is trying to back out of ownership of her participation in the hoax. She has whitewalled her December, 2008 article, One Of My Sources Died In A Plane Crash Last Night.
Click on it all you like. Nothing but a white screen appears.
Problem is she can run, but she can't hide. Copies of the article can be found elsewhere. For now a small quote from the following link will serve our purposes. The "jounalist" referred to is none other than Larisa Alexandrovna, not even her real name!
Karl Rove case witness killed in plane crash, sisters want answers
On Dec. 19, Connell flew alone in his single-engine Piper Supercub from a small airport near Washington, D.C. The plane crashed on its final approach to his hometown Akron-Canton Airport, between two houses. The cause is still under investigation but is presumed accidental.
The blogosphere refuses to accept this. "Mike was getting ready to talk," writes one online journalist who labels Connell a source. "He was frightened."
Now she's saying Michael Connell wasn't scared for his life. Riotous!
Not so...(April 30th, 2009)
There was never a threat on his person that I am aware of. The threat is - as I understand it - more like using the DOJ to go after him. That is not only plausible, I think it is probably likely. Just fyi
Ok, here's a copy of that article she whitewalled, where she said otherwise back in late 2008. Notice how she said there was a need to take precautions to meet with Heather Connell because of the alleged threats. Notice how she said she had been aware of the Judge being informed of the threats. And finally, check out how she lied or was mistaken about which lawyers informed the Judge of the so-called threats.
One of my sources died in a plane crash last night...
I have been to Mr. Connell's home. Mr. Connell has confided that he was being threatened, something that his attorneys also told the judge in the Ohio election fraud case. When I met with Heather, his wife, I did so carefully because of the threats he was getting.
I could go on, but at this point I'm pretty much just rehashing stuff I've already covered. For those in the know, apologies. For those new to all this, you can check out the related articles I wrote for this blog and at my other one. Spread the word. At some point these people are going to get the kind of attention they never expected nor hoped for.
