The following was on Neal Rauhauser’s Scribd account and then deleted. It was written in 2012 and sent to the LA County Prosecutor’s office. Neal has a tendency to contact law enforcement to try and cover his ass after he’s caused trouble.
Note in the second paragraph below that Neal claims Patrick Frey, aka Patterico, harassed and intimidated management at Daily Kos which led to his being banned. That’s funny but it’s unlikely a Conservative who isn’t a member of DailyKos could get someone banned. And in Neal’s case he had at least 5 accounts and all of them were banned.
Neal goes on to spin his confusingly complex conspiracy nonsense to establish that he was not the SWATter of Stack and Patterico…I think they’d disagree.
Gentlemen, I am writing you today regarding the long running unethical and perhaps criminal conduct of John Patrick Frey. I first became aware of Frey some time in in the context of Anthony Weiner’s sexting scandal. I wrote the following articles based on what I knew of his conduct. I was banned from this site on July 29th, 2011 due to Frey’s intimidation and manipulation of the management. As a one line summary of these articles, Weiner was indeed engaging women he had met online, but the “teenage girls” he had been in contact were entirely fake, and Frey seemed to have a deep involvement in this fabrication. We later learned that the underlying motive for all of this seems to be Congressman Mike Grimm in NY-11 taking revenge on Weiner, who triggered a federal grand jury that is investigating Grimm for extortion.

I continued to watch Frey and his associates. Frey or someone close to him induced a New Jersey resident named Mike Stack to file a citizen’s complaint against me in New Jersey during January of 2012. The assertion Stack made was shocking – that I had made a false police report on June 23rd, 2011 which had resulted in police raids of his former address, his parents house, and then finally his actual residence. Stack has indicated his door was kicked in and he spent some time handcuffed face down in his yard while the police searched his house for the body of his wife and the gun that he used to shoot her. Stack has never owned a firearm, nor has he ever married. Stack was targeted due to the fact that he had been left holding the bag for the fabricated teens that targeted Anthony Weiner, and he continued to draw attention to what happened even after Weiner resigned. I later learned that Frey had asserted he was also the victim of a false report on June 30th, 2011, and that he had employed Los Angeles County audio forensics expert Kent Gibson in an attempt to frame Ron Brynaert for this. Brynaert is an investigative journalist, I have spoken to him once and it is clear that he is not the voice of the false report caller. This matter was explored in depth by Brynaert and another blogger, who uses the pen name qritiq (critic). http://qritiq.wordpress.com/2012/06/04/secret-evidence/
There are many unknowns in this tangle of characters and sub-plots, but the following video cuts through the confusion. This 3:35 video compares the voice of the SWAT caller to that of Brandon Darby. This man is in partnership with Lee Stranahan, a former editor for Frey’s blog, http://patterico.com. Stranahan was ejected from this role the day after Frey was allegedly targeted and the public statements regarding why this was done have never held up. I think there are two theories that could explain Stranahan’s removal: either Frey was in on what happened to Stack, or Darby and Stranahan set him up for a much less aggressive police visit, then tried to draw him into the scheme after the fact. An analysis of this entire series of events has been provided to the FBI, as it may be of interest to federal grand juries in New York and D.C., as well as their current cybercrime task force. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pe4NCaz4NgM
I arranged to resolve the charges Stack had filed via mediation in mid May of 2012 in conjunction with another court proceeding in New Jersey scheduled the next day. The other hearing was an injunction attempt by James O’Keefe, who was trying to suppress evidence of his election fraud that was in the hands of a woman named Nadia Naffe. O’Keefe is facing a grand jury in New Hampshire. I had made the New Hampshire assistant AG prosecuting the case aware that she had evidence, but the timeframe was too tight for him to produce an out of state subpoena. In lieu of that I hand delivered a letter to Naffe’s counsel which indicated the AG’s interest in preserving the evidence. Frey published Naffe’s personal information including medical records and social security number to the Scribd.com PDF repository. This was done during work hours and he used his wife’s account. I understand that Christi Frey is also a deputy district attorney for Los Angeles County. This was a transparent attempt to intimidate a witness. I brought this situation to the attention of Los Angeles attorney Jay Leiderman, then introduced he and Naffe, and he is now representing her in a civil case against Frey.
I recently learned that Frey has been in communication with Barrett Brown, the self-described “Commander of Anonymous” during the Tunisia revolution. Brown is the founder of Project PM, a research oriented online activist group that has been heavily involved in many of the “operations” Anonymous has done over the last two years. Their discussion centered around an exchange – Brown would do *something* about or to me, and in exchange Frey would take action against Robert Stacy McCain. An SPLC listed hate talker, McCain was the subject of an entire chapter in a book Brown published a few years ago, and McCain has harassed me endlessly since the 2010 election. http://cryptome.org/2012/09/frey-chat-brown.htm http://cryptome.org/2012/09/frey-chat-brown-02.htm http://cryptome.org/2012/09/frey-chat-brown-03.htm
Brown is someone I know from DailyKos and I do talk to him occasionally, but I have kept a good bit of distance since the winter of 2010. Even then it was painful obvious he was going to get a federal indictment fairly soon. His home was searched and his computers seized in March of 2012 in connection with the indictment of a number of members of the LulzSec hacking group. He was arrested this Wednesday on charges of threatening a federal agent. http://www.wired.com/threatlevel/2012/09/barret-brown-raid/
Brown was already releasing his communications with Frey due to a disagreement with him, and I strongly suspect that Frey or one of his associates triggered Brown’s raid this week. Brown was denied bail and transferred to federal custody. He will likely be quite willing to discuss whatever passed between he and Frey.
This conflict has been steadily escalating for the last fifteen months. Frey has offered to trade favors with someone who was clearly operating outside the law in order to get at me. The next obvious step for him is to move this from the virtual world to the physical, trading a plea deal with the gangs he is supposed to prosecute in exchange for violence against me, my associates, or my family.
Please put a stop to Frey’s schemes before he gets someone killed.
