Bill Schmalfeldt had a minor feltdown followed by threats after he purposely, and not by accident, visited the blog of someone he is suing (again) and has decided that the host and his commenters are going to face dire consequences for not buying his narrative.
It seems as though he is having some serious difficulties in remembering events. The gorgeous Morgana, The Dread Pirate Zombie, aka Sarah Palmer, wrote about his “Convenient Dementia” yesterday which probably left several burn marks.
John Hoge shared a previous post as his TKPOD segment telling of how Schmalfeldt made a cash offer for information on Paul Krendler, but reneged when the terms were met by someone he didn’t like.
On his daily routine of looking for butthurt, here is his response. Stretch your lulz muscles a bit first..
Notice what he is sharing: It’s a Personnel Action that anyone who has been in civil service knows is just the paperwork used to change the status of an employee, such a job change, pay raise, bonus, etc. The point he was trying to make is that he was giving up an $98K a year job for his disability.
(Note: The actual salary is $78K. He gets to the higher number because he lives in a more expensive area and gets a $20K locality adjustment. Ask me how I know this.)
Schmalfeldt has always stated the reason for his disability is related to these documents which he posted on Twitter:
Here is the damning.. I mean, relevant part of this document:
In June of 2009, Schmalfeldt was allowed to work from home to accommodate his disability. As time went on, his ability to do his job in the more favorable home environment declined significantly that he could no longer do his job and filed for Disability Retirement, which was granted in March of 2011.
Dr. Bailin never examined Schmalfeldt, only reviewed the documentation provided by Schmalfeldt and concluded that he had sufficient evidence to support the change of his status. Schmalfeldt had already told the world he gave up driving because he could not trust himself due to the progression of his disease. In short, he was on a short trip to the grave.
In 2015, after the death of his wife and realizing that he was not going to get the justice he sought, he moved to Wisconsin and things improved, so much so that he got a CAR in late 2016! In April of 2017, he drove it to South Carolina and the poor car gave out. Interesting it died before he did.
Now remember, in 2011, he couldn’t hold down a job because his condition had worsened to the point where he could no longer drive and barely take care of himself, even at his home.
In March of 2017, he set up a GoFundme account to raise money (read have people give him $15,000) to travel around the country and document America. He estimated he would drive around 14,000 miles in 35 days, which is roughly 400 miles a day.
For a guy who can barely handle a job where he was allowed to work from home in 2011, how does he manage to think he can do this trip where he has to travel 400 miles a day, eat, document, edit, and then go to the next city in about five weeks? Obviously, he represented quite clearly that he was physically able to do this trip.
Between March and May of 2017, Schmalfeldt had travelled at least twice from Clinton, Iowa to Myrtle Beach, SC, which is about 1,000 miles one way. His physical condition in 2011 would have prevented such a trip, but he did it anyway.
Fast forward to July. Schmalfeldt needs to travel 500 miles to Westminster, Maryland, to answer a Show Cause order and balks, claiming his Parkinson’s Disease make it painful for him to travel. In fact, he made such a big deal about it that he was going to sue the court for violating the ADA if the Judge ordered punitive action against him.
Anyone else see the problem here? From late 2016 through May of 2017, Schmalfeldt was DRIVING a car and going cross country. When it came time for the Schmalfeldt to show his cowardice, he didn’t disappoint and ran straight into the arms of Parkinson’s Disease.
However, what would have happened if the GoFundMe raised the $15,000 he sought? Realistically, it would have taken a few months to raise all the funds which puts the start of his trip mid to late summer, around July/August.
So if he has a court date to travel 500 miles and complains that he can’t go due to Parkinson’s, and yet has an active campaign to raise funds for a trip that involves traveling 400 miles a day, does that constitute fraud?
Now, things have changed. Schmalfeldt isn’t claiming disability from Parkinson’s, he’s saying he’s had a different disability all along and provides this as proof:
Notice, he doesn’t provide any evidence to support it, which is his general practice when he doesn’t want scrutiny. Instead, he amps up the victim drama and declares that everyone must stop commenting on a blog he doesn’t have to visit or.. ELSE!
If he’s receiving disability payments for a blown out knee while he was in the service, then it’s obviously not fraud if a medical board made that determination.
He claims that he knows the name of the person who called in a report to have his benefits stopped, and yet, he says this:
Doesn’t sound like a factual statement, but rather a narrative for which he has provided no evidentiary support, like his claim that landlords have denied his application for tenancy based on what they saw on the internet.
However, this statement in the earlier tweet mentioned does deserve scrutiny:
“.. just so I could get less than 1/3 of that.”
This does speak to fraud IF he is receiving disability for Parkinson’s Disease, especially if he has represented the progressive nature of it and has no medical explanation for its regression and sudden return, with all the proof provided by.. Schmalfeldt.
Or maybe this was correct:
Hell of an actor? No, I would say “Bad liar.”
Update: Had to rewrite one paragraph because it didn’t make sense regarding his GoFundMe campaign.
