Bloggers work to debunk Brett Kimberlin’s new claim that he was a SWAT-ting victim

Brett Kimberlin’s group Velvet Revolution has offered a $10,000 reward leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for the attempted SWAT-tings of Mike Stack, Patrick Frey (Patterico), RedState’s Erick Erickson, and … Brett Kimberlin? Well that’s a new one.

As Patterico points out, Kimberlin was interviewed by ABC News after his alleged SWAT-ting and didn’t bring it up.

Some had their doubts about Kimberlin’s new claim.

Sure, the FBI should investigate. But for now, maybe bloggers can get started on the heavy lifting.

This morning, Lee Stranahan got a statement from the Montgomery county, Maryland public information office. It begins:

I searched our 911 call database for the above listed address. There was no call listed for 5/31, nor anything similar to what you described. I then searched each of our 6 districts for the entire day of 5/31 for a murder in progress, murder just occurred or murder occurred earlier call with negative results.

Visit Stranahan’s blog to read the full statement.

Earlier today, Kimberlin’s attorney seemed to imply that his client had been SWAT-ted.

But with no public record to back him up, Kimberlin’s SWAT-ting claim looks dubious at best.

With 85 House Republicans urging Attorney General Eric Holder to investigate SWAT-tings, serial harasser Brett Kimberlin may find he doesn’t enjoy the disinfecting powers of sunlight.
