Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah), who was once a victim of a vexatious lawsuit filed by convicted terrorist bomber Brett Kimberlin, today weighed in on the ongoing Kimberlin saga.
As Kerry Picket of the Washington Times reports, when he was a prisoner Kimberlin sued Hatch baselessly blaming the senator for his failure at the time to win parole. The suit went down in flames.
Hatch’s office issued the following statement:
Senator Hatch has had run ins with Brett Kimberlin before and they weren’t pleasant. So it’s certainly no surprise that Mr. Kimberlin has now taken to harassing and targeting conservative bloggers. Needless to say, efforts to silence and chill political speech are contrary to the values of our Constitution and First Amendment.
