Patterico and Polanski

In my recent column on the Polanski affair, I referred readers to Patrick Frey’s blog, (where I too post from time to time). Frey is a deputy district attorney for Los Angeles County, and he does yeoman’s work in keeping readers abreast of the latest developments in the matter. Today he notes the suspicious appearance of a commenter who, under the screen name “kitty kat,” defends Polanski by wallpapering an identical comment across every post of his in which is mentioned, in Harvey Weinstein’s locution, Polanski’s “so-called crime.” Frey did a bit of sleuthing into ones and zeros and discovered, beyond a reasonable doubt and to a moral certainty, that “kitty kat” is none other than Michelle Sullivan, an associate producer of the documentary Roman Polanski: Wanted & Desired, which aired on HBO and sought to discredit the case against Polanski. How desperate these defenders of the indefensible are becoming.
