On The Trail Of "Anonymous," Christine O'Donnell's Sex-Free Pal

[UPDATE: TSG has identified the “Anonymous” correspondent who today detailed his purported (sexless) one-night stand with Christine O’Donnell. See bottom of piece.]

Readers of today’s first-person account of a sexless one-night stand with kooky Senate candidate Christine O’Donnell might have noticed that the author--whom Gawker cloaked as “Anonymous” --was wearing an actual Boy Scouts uniform in photos accompanying the story about the purported Halloween night encounter three years ago.

While the man’s identity remains a secret (at least for the time being), TSG has determined that the uniform’s owner is a buddy of “Anonymous” who actually works for the Boy Scouts of America.

Brad Kurisko, 28, is a district executive with a Boy Scouts council in the Philadelphia area. In the pictures of O’Donnell mugging with “Anonymous,” the nametag on the uniform is obscured with a black bar. This was presumably done to further protect the identity of “Anonymous” and cut off any attempts to ID him via the uniform.

Which apparently only worked half.

In a series of phone conversations this afternoon, Kurisko, pictured above, acknowledged that “Anonymous” had worn his Boy Scouts outfit, but claimed that he was unaware that the uniform would be seen in photos published with the O’Donnell story. “I have to go home and kick his ass,” Kurisko said of his buddy, whom he declined to identify. He added, “I had no idea that any pictures existed.”

Asked if he was involved in the preparation or brokering of the Gawker story, Kurisko declined comment. While denying that he was “Anonymous,” Kurisko refused to identify the story’s author, claiming that TSG was “asking me to throw someone under the bus.” He also refused to answer a question about whether he received money in connection with the story (Gawker's editor told a Yahoo reporter that the site paid in the "low four figures" for the O'Donnell story).

While Kurisko refused to out “Anonymous,” some online activity this evening may point to the author’s identity. Shortly after his last phone conversation with a TSG reporter, a single name disappeared from Kurisko's list of Facebook friends.

The man with whom electronic ties were abruptly cut is Dustin Dominiak, a 28-year-old buddy who attended Albion College with Kurisko. Records show that Dominiak has previously shared a Philadelphia address with Kurisko. One online posting reports that Dominiak, a Michigan native, has worked as an auditor at the Federal Reserve in Philadelphia. Dominiak is pictured at left.

Soon after Dominiak's name vanished from Kurisko's list of friends, Dominiak’s entire Facebook page (which listed 356 friends) was suddenly deactivated. Perhaps this was Dominiak’s attempt to achieve a greater degree of anonymity.

UPDATE: In a phone interview tonight, a besieged Kurisko told TSG that Dominiak is the man pictured with O’Donnell in the Gawker photos. He said that while Dominiak had borrowed his Boy Scouts uniform, he was unaware of the existence of photos of his roommate with O’Donnell.

Kurisko said that he had no idea that Dominiak was preparing the Gawker piece and only became aware of its publication after speaking with a TSG reporter late this afternoon. He added that he is now concerned about “preserving my job” in light of media scrutiny, which has included reporters attempting to contact members of his family. These contacts, Kurisko added, were triggered by a Village Voice report that erroneously identified him as “Anonymous.”

Dominiak is “well aware of the situation,” said Kurisko, who added, "I was not aware this was going down."

I would think the O'Donnell campaign would embrace this story. What's the scandal? NOT sleeping with some random dude? Cultivating a dense all-American thatch? (Having your privates described as "Brazilian" seems a little unpatriotic to me.) Furthermore, it only proves what she's been saying all along. Even on Halloween, she was not a witch.
(And yes, I understand--according to the story, they did SLEEP-sleep together. You know what I mean. They did not "do the do, and the funky chicken too".)
LOL! This guy is desperate and the village's idiot. LOL! Go Christine!
ROFL. That tubby bastard ought to be thankful he ever got to see pussy. Obviously, that face isn't a turn-on.
I'm calling "BS" on his story that her bush turned him off. I'm guessing the REAL reason no actual sex happened is that SOMEONE couldn't get it up.
I know someone who knows this guy and the fact is he has a micropenis. She likely laughed at it and he cried and ran off.
The 75 poster says 75 SEASONS not 75th Anniversary. 2007 was the 75th season, as 1933 was #1, 1934 #2 etc.
i_like_wine & serial232, You are both wrong. Since you both suggest counting on your fingers, let's do that. If the Eagles were founded in the Fall of 1933, the Fall of 1934 would have been the first anniversary. Counting on your fingers, you will discover that 1943 would be the 10th anniversary, 1953 the 20th, 1963 the 30th, 1973 the 40th, 1983 the 50th, 1993 the 60th and 2003 the 70th. Now count 5 more years to reach the 75th: 2004 (1), 2005 (2), 2006 (3), 2007 (4), 2008 (5). The 75th anniversary would be the season beginning in the Fall of 2008. As for serial232's claim that NFL seasons overlap calendar years, that is incorrect also. Am NFL season begins in late August or early September, and ends in mid- to late-December. The post-season begins after the end of the season and continues into the following year, but the SEASON ends in December. It is called the post-season because it happens AFTER the end of the season. So, you are both wrong. This is a bogus story.
Belongs with Elvis and Michael Jackson sitings
You,like all the idiots that claimed 2000 was beginning of the new thousand years, just don't get it. The first year of the calendar is not 0, it is 1. That means that when you start counting on your little fingers, because you need to, you do not count 1933, you count 1934. Now, in math, if you want to count from 7 to 10 and include 7, then you use (7,8,9,10) making 7 inclusive, so that the answer would be 4 numbers, But everyone knows that there are 3 numbers from 7 to 10 or 10 minus 7 equals 3, not 4. How many math tests did you fail? So, 2007 minus 75 is 1932, not 1933, and 2008 minus 75 is 1933. And 2001 was the beginning of the 21st century, not 2000. That is why from 1901 to 2000 it is called the 20th century. I bet you were really confused when you were taught that Columbus discovered the new world in the 15th century, even though it was 1492.
