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."

Read the original article. His roommate went as the cokehead because they had no costume for him at the last moment. The writer of the article had a boyscout uniform left over from the previous Halloween.
Look at the photos and you can see that Christine is not drinking Heiniken. According to annonymous, they were pounding Heinekens. I know when I was a bartender, non-mixed drinks got 2 straws or even an umbrella. Her drink has 3 straws, just saying. Lots of men have come out of the woodwork this election cycle to try to tarnish Republican women. Sounds like Saul Alinsky type tactics, which we are becoming all to aware of.
The left will stop at nothing to attack anyone who is a conservative, especially someone who is also a Christian. If that person is a woman, it drives them nuts. From name calling like the above story using the word "kooky" to false allegations to actually attacking Biblical values. When they do the later they should heed the warning found in the Bible that "God will not be mocked."
Is that it? Is this inane nonsense the best the left can do in its relentless effort to smear smart, attractive women who threaten it? What is it with these leftists? Did any of them ever know their mothers? Or were their mommies too busy to rear them, occupied as they were with printing up copies of The Peoples' Daily Commie Pinksheet or some other red garbage in the basements of Brooklyn bordellos? Is this the best the left can do? Pathetic. Of course, the 'bearded marxist' can't run on anything sane, logical, or honest because, well because he's a rich-brat commie, so as usual, the left insults all with whom it disagrees. Which means that insulting people is three full time jobs, as the left disagrees with everyone who is decent, good, just, attractive, smart, and not a commie rat. Let's hope the left keeps it up. The more the left runs its ugly slanderous mouth, the more citizens see it for the cancer it's long been. Paul Vincent Zecchino Manasota Key, Florida 28 October, 2010
OhBummer is a b00b and a fool for attacking the American Tea Partiers. He is annoyed that they’re not grateful to him for hijacking the American healthcare system --- the greatest act of vandalism perpetrated upon the American people since a gang of jihadi frootloops and loonytoons hijacked some planes and crashed them into the World Trade Center towers, and the Pentagon, and made a failed attempt to crash into the White House and instead drilled a hole in a Pennsylvania farm thanks to some very courageous American passengers. And --- now widely seen for what he is --- the president presents a problem for the Democrat-captured media. They pump out his propaganda for him --- and, like the opinion monitors in Ayn Rand’s novel, “Atlas Shrugged” --- they are dodging brickbats and rotten vegetables. He’s pompous, pampered, and pretentious --- a pseudo-intellectual fop. He’s a glorified, smooth-lyin’ dandy, and slicker than Sick Willie Clinton. He’s a dictator-on-the-make, a bloodsxcking, predatory humanitarian thug, and a low-down skunk. He’s a fraud and a swindler. He lies when he inhales and he lies when he exhales; his oxygen is the falsification of reality. He lies, placidly and laconically, as if deception were a soporific drug. He’s a friend of the poor and the downtrodden --- indeed, you can hear the milk of human kindness sloshing around inside of him when he walks. He declares himself the post-racial leader --- “Let me be clear!” he intones --- and he hides behind his race, daring his critics to put their reputation for fairness at risk. He pauses to ponder the portent of his propaganda --- and it is fakery; he smiles and his mendacity comes shining through. Shake hands with Barak Hushpuppy OhBummer --- “The Mistake of ‘08” --- the illegal alien squatter in the White House --- and America’s first and last Arab president. Now count your fingers.
There is no greater political conspiracy with either article, and you sound like a lunatic ranting about "the left." Its very telling you resort to infantile name-calling, and honestly you should be embarrassed about what you've written if you give it any critical thought. The original article is just someone who had a chance moment with a random celebrity and sold the story anonymously, and TSG is doing the kind of investigative journalism they do best.. Honestly you and all your sock-puppet commenters on this article should be encouraging TSG to investigate the boyscout :)
A "random celebrity". Right. If you can't see that this is a smear job on O'Donnell, I pity you. I actually don't fault TSG here, because they're just following up on a story that's already out there. Gawker, on the other hand, is deserving of our scorn. I'm glad TSG outed this guy, because HE is the one who should be embarrassed here. Way to drag your friend down with you pal.
Right. Just before the election. The author is a sock puppet for Democrat party jrk-offs.
This is disgusting! This guy should be thrown out of Philly for conduct unbecoming to a Philadelphian! A nice healthy lady offers you fur-pie? Hey, GET YOUR FACE INTO IT!
Seriously..... do you really believe his story. I'm guessing "turned off by her bush" is code for "erectile dysfunction."
