I was intrigued by Ali A. Akbar’s explanation about his criminal past. He made a statement regarding this criminal past after BU had exposed it to the public. In short it read that during a small portion of time in his life he made a mistake and that mistake was documented in his post below:
Of course as one can now see this is pure fabrication. There was more than one event, more than just one crime, and the initial crime being that he stole the following:
Five MP3 Players, Twenty CD’s, Three Camcorders, Two DVD Players, One Back Massager (How ghetto is this thief?) One Clock, Four Shirts, Two Belts (WTF?) and a Piece of Luggage, which had the value of over 1500.00 USD but less than 20,000.00 USD. This theft was obtained pursuant to one scheme or a continuing course of criminal conduct which began on or about November 1st 2006, and continued until on or about November 29th 2006. In other words, he was stealing from this person more than once, and over a course of time that lasted almost a full month before it came to an end. Then, not a few days after he was released from custody he ended up with another case of criminal credit card fraud, to wit:
This new case happened shortly after his release from jail on the months long theft spree. Note, that this conduct does not say anywhere that he was out riding with a friend, and that some friend tried to withdraw funds but no funds were withdrawn. In fact, the FACTS of the case are that Ali Akbar, with the intent to FRAUDULENTLY obtain a benefit, did present or use a debit card, to wit: A Wells Fargo Debit Card with the knowledge that said card had NOT been issued to him, and with the knowledge that said card was NOT used with the consent of the owner/cardholder. That means that the above statement of facts that Ali Akbar made on Facebook to explain his conduct to conservatives and funding sources, as well as his own National Bloggers Club membership, was an outright LIE, and not only that, fraud.
So it appears that 400.00 dollars was withdrawn from this debit card as noted by the fine of 400.00 USD. There was no friend who used a card, and then that “no funds were withdrawn” as Ali Akbar claimed. In fact, it appears that Mr. Akbar used this credit/debit card himself and withdrew 400.00 USD from the ATM machine, else why the 400.00 USD fine? The end result was 4 years of probation which Ali Akbar was just released from this past May 2012:
Ali A. Akbar is still lying to the public about his criminal past. Not only that, he is still lying to donors, benefactors, funding sources, conservatives, and everyone else in between. As far as the first criminal charge, it seems that Mr. Akbar had a penchant for stealing from other people, and willfully stole money and or property from them over a long period of time. Then when confronted recently about this past, he blatantly lied about it to everyone else, claiming that it was one small event that was over and done with quickly: when in fact it was a series of events that just now ended this past May 2012 with his 4 year probation being completed.
What will the right wing nut jobs say now? Will they still back him up even though he has been proven to be a serial liar? Will funding sources and donors still give him money even though he is still lying and covering up his criminal past? Can anyone believe him when he talks about the issues? Will the National Bloggers Club decide they can’t have him on board?
More to come in this developing story…
