In Which “Paul Krendler” Apparently Admits He and WJJ Hoge Fabricated Evidence in Recent Copyright Suit

RE: Howard County Police Report, Case #140120508
HOGE v SCHMALFELDT (Copyright Infringement Suit) 1:14-cv-01683-ELH in the US District Court for the District of Maryland, Northern Division
Dear “Paul Krendler”:
I must tell you I enjoyed your little bit of fiction in tonight’s post on Thinking Man’s Zombie. Feeling a bit nervous about that e-mail I see. So nervous, you create plausible deniability by claiming — in what you will no doubt call “fiction” — that you boys “ginned up” the e-mail that the feds can use to trace you through WJJ Hoge.
If I may quote you…
For your sake, as well as Hoge’s, I hope this IS a work of fiction on your part. Not as good as “Ded Jed,” perhaps, but slick. Thing is, if true, you’ve just caused a bit of trouble for yourself and Mr. Hoge, as the e-mail to which you refer was entered as evidence in Hoge’s misbegotten copyright lawsuit against me. It was his motion to dismiss my motion for Summary Judgment. You recall that, right?
As you can see, “Paul,” I’ve copied officials with the Howard County Police and State’s Attorney’s office, the Carroll County Police and State’s Attorney’s office, and the presiding judge in the Copyright Infringement case that your “fiction” claims you and Mr. Hoge, 20 Ridge Rd., Westminster, MD, “ginned up” an exhibit for. Not being a lawyer, I don’t know what Mr. Hoge can be charged with. And as I am unable to contact him because of the purloined peace order he obtained through deception in August, someone else is going to have to tell him that you have implicated him in a potential attempt to defraud the US Government.
I will leave it to the law enforcement officials copied on this e-mail to see what, if anything, can and should be done. We both realize that Hoge knows where you live, as — if the above e-mail is true and not forged, as you claim in your “fiction” — and I’m sure the proper authorities will wish to contact me.
In the name of “fun” you have jeopardized your anonymity and freedom, and that of Mr. Hoge. I fully intend to find out who mailed an improperly packaged Tupperware container of horse dung to my home, “Paul.” My Parkinson’s disease has done nothing to weaken my resolve to hold whoever committed that vile offense to my family responsible.
Feel free to contact me any time.
William M. Schmalfeldt
