Ali Abdul Razaq Akbar may be the most influential person you've never heard of. A native of Fort Worth, Texas, Akbar went from wearing prison orange to becoming one of the leading voices in the Republican new media empire. How he did this is a mystery. He has worked at high-level positions on numerous campaigns -- all of which lost their elections. Without visible means of support, an education, or any real political savvy, Akbar found himself controlling the Vice and Victory media consultation agency (which, at this point, is no more than a logo on a website), Pundit Syndication, LLC (which publishes "Viral Read" and "The Other McCain" -- both of which are edited by R. Stacy McCain, a man identified by the Southern Poverty Law Center as belonging to a rabid pro-Confederacy group), and CEO of the "National Bloggers Club, Inc." -- an organization created for the titular reason of "supporting right wing bloggers."

Ali Akbar's Mugshot by Mugshots Online

Ali A. Akbar has lived life on greased skids since his felony conviction in 2007 for breaking into a man's van, stealing and using his debit card -- part of a plea agreement consolidating several other crimes into a single charge, earning the felon five years of probation.

Ali A. Akbar has been rumored to "have been in a relationship" with such powerful Republican figures as Karl Rove (an allegation Akbar denies, even though Rove claimed an image of Akbar as "intellectual property" in 2012). One of those making such allegations is Roger Shuler, creator of the Legal Schnauzer blog who was arrested, beaten and jailed Oct. 23 for violating what many feel is an unconstitutional court order.

Akbar is going to need all the help he can get in the weeks and months to come.  He is being sued by Brett Kimberlin -- infamous for his conviction in the Speedway Bombings in the late 1970s, immortalized by Gary Trudeau in a series of "Doonesbury" strips as the guy who sold pot to Dan Quayle. Since his release from prison, Kimberlin has turned his life around, forming non-profit organizations that work for social justice.

As one of the loudest supporters of former Rep. Anthony Weiner when shocked liberals believed he was being framed by Andrew Breitbart, the conservative muckraker singled out Kimberlin for special attention. He ordered his minions to bring him Kimberlin's scalp. He didn't live long enough to hang the sandy brown scalp on his lodge wall, since Breitbart dropped dead in front of his house on March 1, 1942.

Breitbart's death gave his minions new zeal in their pursuit of Kimberlin. One of them, Virginia compliance attorney Aaron Walker (using the pseudonym Aaron Worthing) offered free legal help to Seth Allen, who was involved in a lawsuit against Kimberlin.  Unable to find an "Aaron Worthing" on any state list of lawyers, Kimberlin did some digging and learned that Worthing was actually Aaron Walker, and Walker was the creator of an "Everybody Draw Mohammed Day" blog that drew the attention and anger of America's Islamic community.

Kimberlin identified Walker, Walker lost his job. From that point, it was Walker's mission on Earth to "get" Brett Kimberlin. He took Kimberlin to court time after time, losing every attempt to have Kimberlin put back in jail.

During this time, Akbar created the "National Bloggers Club," claiming it was a 501(c)3, tax deductible organization. A check with the IRS revealed that no one associated with Akbar nor Akbar himself had ever bothered to apply for the designation.

Now, Akbar finds himself involved in two lawsuits with Kimberlin as plaintiff.  In the first, Kimberlin accuses Akbar, Walker, R. Stacy McCain, a Maryland blogger named WJJ Hoge, and a pseudonymous blogger who goes by the handle "Kimberlin Unmasked" on a variety of charges, including defamation of character, stalking, harassment, abuse of process, malicious prosecution, conspiracy, invasion of privacy and intentional infliction of emotional distress. And that was just for starters.

On October 13, Kimberlin filed suit in the U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland making the same charges and alleging RICO violations against the same five defendants, and 15 more.

If you were a lawyer with a client facing multiple defamation and racketeering charges, your advice would likely be to your client -- keep your yap shut.  Akbar, McCain, Hoge, Walker and Hoge especially, have ignored that advice.

Akbar, McCain and Hoge took to the Internet airwaves to try their case in "blogger's court" and laughed off the charges against them.  On October 24, after being "dared" by Akbar, this writer appeared on Akbar's Blog Talk Radio show and faced down both Akbar and McCain.

On that show, Akbar not only doubled down on the defamation, he committed libel by claiming Kimberlin had killed someone in Speedway, Indiana.

All of this raises the question posed in the headline. Who are you going to believe, Ali Akbar or Ali Akbar?
