ODBA Press Release

25 August 2007

 Live By “Macaca,” Die By “NAMBLA”

Top Virginia Democratic Strategist Linked To Pedophile Web Site

Richmond, Virginia. (August 25, 2007) – The Old Dominion Blog Alliance (“ODBA”), an organization of approximately 25 conservative Virginia bloggers founded on December 9, 2005, discovered on August 21 that someone registered the domain name of “olddominionblogalliance.com” on August 16 via GoDaddy.com’s Domains by Proxy service in order to conceal their identity. The domain was then set to forward to the web site for the North American Man-Boy Love Association (“NAMBLA”), an organization that promotes illegal activity between adults and children, including pedophilia.


Following this disclosure, the parties behind it were subsequently discovered to be Joe Stanley of Yellow Dog Strategy, a Democratic consultant who manufactured last year’s “macaca” gaffe by U.S. Sen. George Allen into an ex post facto racial slur and produced the controversial anti-Harris Miller mailing, and Ben Tribbett who runs the Northern Virginian blog “Not Larry Sabato.”


Evidence in hand and a confession by Mr. Stanley show that he was the one who purchased the domain name and then set it to forward to the NAMBLA web site. Mr. Tribbett, who is close to Mr. Stanley, proceeded to peddle the story to another blog and then feigned outrage at this action apparently in order to further raise the story’s visibility while maintaining deniability over it. Mr. Stanley undertook this action just two days after members of the ODBA began a concerted effort against state Sen. Roscoe Reynolds (D-20th Dist.), a candidate for whom Mr. Stanley has done work and who is locked in a tight reelection battle with Republican Jeff Evans. Sen. Reynolds advertises on “Not Larry Sabato.”


“Child sexual abuse is not a joke and certainly not a political tactic to be used in order to silence your political enemies,” said Kathryn Wilton of the blog CatHouse Chat, a member of the ODBA, the wife of a Navy veteran and mother. “Pedophilia is a morally repugnant behavior and how Mr. Stanley or Mr. Tribbett could think this is humorous or fair game politically is beyond my comprehension.”


“Senator Reynolds needs to go on the record whether or not he agrees with these abhorrent tactics used on his behalf,” added Greg Letiecq of Black Velvet Bruce Li, one of the most widely read blogs in Virginia. “Joe Stanley did this to benefit him. Reynolds must either expressly condone or renounce these tactics used for his gain.”


Members of the ODBA are currently considering whether to bring any civil legal claims stemming from this defamatory act perpetrated upon them. Should a case be brought and damages awarded, any proceeds will be donated to organizations that fight child abuse.

  1. The ODBA should not forget that Dirty Joey manages the campaign of Eric Ferguson whose blog ads were on NLS before those of Roscoe Reynolds.

    Eric Ferguson has allowed Dirty Joey to buy domain names of opponents and redirect traffic to Ferguson’s site for two campigns now.

    Ferguson needs to be asked if he condones his campaign manager attempting to draw attention to NAMBLA. People need to know that web site visits are recorded on their computers and if someone were at work and visited the what they thought was the ODBA site and instead get the site of NAMBLA, their visit would be recorded on their computer. If it happened in the workplace, they would quickly be under suspicion by many employers who now track use of computers.

  2. I suspect that we are going to have a controversy of our own closer to home over at Too Conservative. The Loudoun Insider has been removing posts that reveal his identity to be none other than Jeff Wolinski, Lori Waters\’ water boy.

    In his zeal to get rid of anybody who questions Waters conservative status, he\’s starting to get really careless. His compatriot BlackOut posted fraudulent links over at Broadlands but the admins on the site got smart and removed them when it became obvious. A google of BlackOut quickly reveals the identity of this conservative hater too.

    Earlier this year we saw a teaming of Wolinski and Democratic candidate for the Sterling district, George Hidy in a catch me if you can game.

    It is time that this NOT TOO CONSERVATIVE site gets stripped naked for all to see!
