MSNBC and CNN hardest hit.
Some conservative bloggers actually I.D.’d the guy before his arrest was made known. The guy had left a painfully obvious internet trail.
Blogging buddy, Lady Libertyexplains:
Liberty speaks, out of curiosity, started this morning started searching one of the key phrases said to be in the letters as reported by FOX News:
An FBI bulletin obtained by Fox News said the letter sent to Obama is still being screened, though it initially tested positive.
The bulletin said both letters included the phrase: “To see a wrong and not expose it, is to become a silent partner to its continuance.”
Both were signed, “I am KC and I approve this message.”
“To see a wrong and not expose it, is to become a silent partner to its continuance.”
– Dr John Raymond Baker
A link on this post led to another post in which Kevin Curtis, “Elvisguy’ (yes, he’s an Elvis impersonator) commented.
“Mr. Kirwan, I applaud you and anyone else out there who has the courage to step up to the plate with no fear of retaliation from those with something to lose by the threat that those who speak out and take action may cause…know what I mean? Kevin Curtis, Mississippi Activist”
So Liberty Speaks decided to Google Kevin Curtis, ‘Elvisguy’ and came up with his Facebook page which turned out to be a goldmine..
On that page, several posts caught the eye, one in particular was promoting a friend for mayor and included references to both President Obama and Senator Wicker. The post included the phrase:
“This is KC and I approve this message” (link to page)
Also on the About tab for Curtis, we find the other phrase from the Ricin letters:
“To see a wrong and not expose it,
is to become a silent partner to its continuance.”

Game over. Enough said.
….While we did not get a screen shot of the above quotes, we did grab some others:
- Reference to Wicker and Obama
- Map of recent places traveled
- Supporting Jason Shelton for Mayor, using the signature “I’m KC”moniker
- Another shot of support for Jason Shelton with “I’m KC” moniker
- Shot of Curtis with a bumper sticker, “Christian and a Democrat”
Ed Driscoll: Through the Looking Glass
The Mississippi man charged with sending poisoned letters to President Barack Obama, a U.S. senator and a state judge was released from jail on Tuesday, federal official said, though the reason for the release wasn’t immediately clear.
Jeff Woodfin, chief deputy with the U.S. Marshals Service in Oxford, Miss., said Paul Kevin Curtis has been released from custody. Woodfin said he doesn’t know if there were any conditions on the release.
The development comes hours after officials canceled a detention and preliminary hearing without explaining the reason for the change.
His lawyer Christi McCoy, who has been pushing for the charges to be dropped, said in a text message Tuesday that she could only confirm that her client has been released.
“I can tell you he is with his family,” McCoy said.
McCoy has said that there is a news conference scheduled for 5 p.m. CDT with federal authorities and defense attorneys.
Curtis was arrested last Wednesday at his house in Corinth, Miss., and charged with sending ricin-laced letters to Obama, Sen. Roger Wicker and a Lee County, Miss., judge.
Tuesday’s hearing in federal court was canceled about 90 minutes after it was supposed to begin. Lawyers spent that time conferring with the judge. Later, Curtis and family members were escorted into a meeting room with his lawyers, followed by a probation officer.
On Monday, FBI Agent Brandon Grant testified that Friday searches of Curtis’ vehicle and house in Corinth, Miss., found no ricin, ingredients for the poison, or devices used to make it. A search of Curtis’ computers found no evidence he researched making ricin.
It’s now thought that Curtis was framed.
