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."

"Kooky cadidate? F**k you, man.
"batsht insane" didn't rhyme as well, I assume.
Some years ago there was a scandal of sorts re rampant homosexual activities among officials of the Boy Scouts organization and their wards, if my memory serves me right. Now this is just as horrific. These good buddies are male chauvinist piglets, living up their fantasy among themselves and pretending they are still normal boys. Just like Bill Maher who is obviously of the third sex category if there is any. They want to be normal but they are not. Homosexuals are not like the rest of heterosexual males with regard to the structure of their brain. Pity these good buddies because they are also cowardly, they don't even pity themselves. Sissies are ridiculed. On the other hand, marimachos are feared. Man up! as Sharron Angle told Reid. Did you steal the thongs (with profuse apology to Monica Lewinsky) of Christine (in your fantasy, of course?). Let us hope and pray that you don't kill people the way those Columbine duo did. Requiescant in pace! That is what we got for sending openly gay people like Barney Frank to congress. Frank's male live in partner tried cruising his opponent Lt. Bielat who, in his naivete, thought he was being heckled. There.
Way to be coherent, Rambles McBlatherstein. This makes zero sense.
I cannot believe that this story is even a story on Drudge. It is pathetic when someone " anonymous" can attempt to ruin someone's name. News is not made by "anonymous" people. It is just slander - if the source is "anonymous". You should be ashamed and be more cautious in what you report. Where are your standards - or do they even exist anymore?
The Democrats have this "enemies list" --- denominated in epithets aimed at the people whose wallets they wish to hijack and take up residence inside. You can be a “Racist!” and you can be a “Homophobe!” and you can be a “Teabagger!” --- a homosexual man taking his partner’s scrotum into his mouth. You can be “Selfish!” and you can be a “Hick!” and you can be a “Rube!” You can be a “Right-wing-nut!” and you can be a “Warmonger!” and you can be "Unenlightened!" and you can be a “Fascist!” --- although no one more closely approaches the precise description of “Fascist!” than the usual Demo propagandist --- either official, or self-appointed. So all you have to do to occupy multiple epithets on the Demos’ enemies list is to insist that they take their hands off yourself, off your wallet, off your property, off your kids, off your diet, off your healthcare, off your household appliances, off your car, off your bank account, off your weapons of self-defense, off your liberty, and off your freedom of speech. Insist on all these good things - and that qualifies you to be spat upon by nasty, mean-spirited scum --- by The Friends of All Mankind --- by a gang of lying, thieving, dope-smoking, coke-snorting, sticky-fingered, bloodsxcking, tax-eating, gun-stealing, predatory humanitarian thugs --- by the Democrat party, in other words. No political party in the history of America more profoundly deserves absolute and outright destruction.
Can you back up a single claim you've made at all? Why the hell are you mentioning scrotums? ... Also your phrase "predatory humanitarian thugs" is hilarious. Do you even know what "humanitarian" means?
Throttle down, Earl Grey. This article is attempting to unmask the anonymous "slanderer."
This is another desperate attempt to smear O'Donnell because the libtards can't handle the fact she might win, and who the hell are you to call her kooky? What do you know about her other than the fact she she said some silly things while in college, who hasn't done the same? You guys are a joke, you can't even print the name of the author of this stupid article!
Okay, I'm confused. Sure, at first I believed this guy's story that some hot chick was aggressively pursing him for sex, but he gave up on it at the last minute because she was too hairy...down there. But now I have questions. In his story she came to his house to change her clothes, then invited him to a costume party. But he didn't have a costume. So she put a 12 pack Coke box on his head and he became a "Coke head". Now we find that he borrowed a Boy Scouts uniform from a friend and just happened to be wearing it on Halloween. He also appears to have lost his "Coke head" costume as you can clearly see the side of his head in a photo. I'm starting to lose a little of my complete faith in this guy.
