MD4Bush Computer Location Revealed
The WBAL Channel ^ | 12/16/05 | WBAL-TV

Posted on 12/16/2005 4:35:36 PM PST by conservative in nyc

Following the discovery of e-mail addresses connected to the MD4Bush mystery, the WBAL-TV 11 News I-Team has uncovered the electronic trail of Internet activity.

Also Friday, Baltimore Mayor Martin O'Malley responded to the latest twist in the MD4Bush mystery.

Last October, MD4Bush used private e-mails on the Free Republic's Web site to coax a former aide to Gov. Bob Ehrlich, Joe Steffen, into discussing the personal life of Baltimore's mayor.

The 11 News I-Team has learned that MD4Bush routinely logged on to the Internet from a computer in the Pasadena area. On Feb. 8 -- the night the story broke about Steffen -- MD4Bush used a computer in Baltimore to make public the private e-mails Steffen had written.

Jim Robinson, the owner operator of Free Republic, revealed on Friday more of what he knows of the electronic trail of the Internet user MD4Bush.

"MD4Bush's (Internet Protocol) addresses are all local Maryland IPs. For a large nationwide Internet service provider, nothing can be learned from them without a subpoena," Robinson said.

According to a Free Republic representative, the records of the ISP would link the MD4Bush account to a specific name and address.

--Snip--

On Friday, the mayor himself acknowledged he not only knows O'Doherty, but endorsed his hiring.

"He's a good guy, and I do know him," O'Malley said.

The mayor repeated that he doesn't know the identity of MD4Bush.

"I don't know who MD4Bush was, and if I find out, my wife and I will thank that person for exposing Gov. (Bob) Ehrlich, and his gutter politics, and his dirty tricks henchman Joe Steffen," O'Malley said.

Sources told the 11 News I-Team that the electronic trail of MD4Bush does not indicate the postings originated from a government or institutional computer.

As always, more at the link, including information about how Ryan O'Doherty got his job at the Baltimore Metropolitan Council.

Drip. Drip. Drip.

There's a Pasadena in Maryland, south of Baltimore City in Anne Arundel County. I'm assuming that's the Pasadena to which WBAL-TV refers.

Thanks, the Mayor is obviously trying to brazen out his connection to O'Doherty, figuring nobody will get a subpoena.

Sadly that is probably true.

The other possibiliy that probably won't happen is for a federal prosecution of Mosk for violation of the Electronic Communications Privacy Act. You would not need a subpoena for that. Mosk admitted he accessed MD4Bush's account and that exceeds the access limits allowed by FR's Registration and User Agreement.

I hope this bites him in the butt. NCPAC/Steffen said nothing. MD4Bush did all the talking. The posts and freepmails were there for all to read courtesy of the Dem rats.

From the link:

"I don't know who MD4Bush was, and if I find out, my wife and I will thank that person for exposing Gov. (Bob) Ehrlich, and his gutter politics, and his dirty tricks henchman Joe Steffen," O'Malley said.

Yeah, he's a hero says, (newly fired?), Josh White, ex-executive director of the Maryland Democratic Party:

"We have no knowledge of who MD4BUSH is," White said. The governor "should stop chasing a hero and start apologizing to the people of Maryland because Joe Steffen said he did it."

Thank you for following this so closely - don't you just love the boy mayor's line: "I don't know who MD4Bush was, and if I find out, my wife and I will thank that person for exposing Gov. (Bob) Ehrlich, and his gutter politics, and his dirty tricks henchman Joe Steffen," O'Malley said."
What an arrogant punk. I'd love to see him taken down with all this.

I thought that the main issue to pursue was the WP connection.

It would be more fun it all of us just announced (in different threads), "I am MD4BUSH!". Let them spend their entire week reading FR threads - maybe they will learn something....

The electronic trail DOES NOT INDICATE ANYTHING which includes not indicating the posting originated from a govt or institutional computer. It also includes not indicating the posting came from a private computer or a spaceship from mars.

We are back to "depends on what the meaning of is is"
