Albert Hendershot the professional skip tracer and Birther from Birmingham, Alabama claims he received a visit from the FBI on April 10th and they asked him to voluntarily surrender his computer for a few days while they combed through his hard drive. Hendershot who is the owner of the blog The Obama Hustle has by his own admission been misusing his subscription to databases such as Acxiom to run daily searches for any records he can find on the President, the First Lady and Obama supporters. I can confirm that Acxiom was aware of Hendershot’s activity and that were looking into it as a serious matter. It is not a stretch to assume that Acxiom passed along information on Hendershot’s activities to the FBI.
Hendershot has spent hours trying to dig up dirt on the Obama’s and was the one who found the the name “Harrison J. Bounel” linked to the Obama’s South Greenwood Avenue property in Chicago and what may have been President Obama’s social security number. Hendershot’s blog posts about Bounel have found their way into Orly Taitz’s pile of poo that she routinely deposits along with her cases in courts ranging from California to Mississippi. What Hendershot will not tell you is that these databases like Acxiom are rife with errors and include every possible connection from various sources such as government data, public data like marriage, death, and property records, credit records, and consumer data. Much of this data is unverified. It is up to the user to validate the data obtained from uses of these data bases.
If you think these databases are accurate think again. This is a typical disclaimer:
Important: The Public Records and commercially available data sources used on reports have errors. Data is sometimes entered poorly, processed incorrectly and is generally not free from defect. This system should not be relied upon as definitively accurate. Before relying on any data this system supplies, it should be independently verified.
They will not guarantee accuracy and all of them have similar disclaimers to that effect. Remember when Neil Sankey ran searches on Lexis Nexis and found numbers of different addresses and social security numbers for Barack Obama and listed Stanley Ann Dunham’s gender as male? Neil Sankey search of Barack Obama’s address and SS number Neil Sankey reportedly lost access to Lexis Nexis for conducting searches on the President. These searches helped launch Orly Taitz on her non-stop manure spreading campaign.
This is not the first time Birthers have gotten in hot water for poking around where they shouldn’t . Greg Hollister got a visit from the authorities for impersonating the President to obtain a copy of his draft card. Linda Jordan received a visit from the Secret Service after she improperly accessed the Social Security eVerfiy self service system.
Hendershot seems to have toned down his rhetoric since he posted this few weeks ago in a reply to Doctor Conspiracy on Hendershot’s blog:
This is my reply to Dr. Conspiracy on The Obama Hustle.
“No offence, but I don’t give a god damn what Brietbart has to say. I can gurantee that they have no databases to pull skp tracing data like I can. Now, if you want me to prove the validity of my databases, shoot me in an email your name, and address and I will skip trace you and show you what I can pull on you, your family, your neighbors and so on. I am not being a smat-ass in any way towards you, but I can show you how accurate these databases can be. You would be amazed at what I could find on you.
BTWIf I had my way I would drag all of the OBOTS out in the street and tear their Socialiist hearts out. There is nothng nice about me as a person. The one things I love about Skip Tracing is finding out where these slug debtors live and paying them a visit especally when they have threatened me over their debts and hoping that they have a gun so I can use mine. You see that’s the difference between me and a pussy like Brietbart. They do not have the stomach for a real fight like I do.
You have a great day.”

Unless some sort of charges are filed as a result of the FBI action we will probably not know what it was about. The FBI and real law enforcement agencies unlike the Mike Zullo’s Clown Case Posse do not go on Birther radio programs or hold news conferences with faked evidence to talk about their investigations.
Hendershot was one of several Birthers who filed ridiculous ballot challenges against Barack Obama in 2012. He filed a motion against the Alabama Democratic Chair Mark Kennedy to try to prevent the party from naming Barack Obama as their candidate. The case was dismissed after a hearing held before Judge Helen Shores Lee on January 9, 2012. This was one of at least three such challenges filed in Alabama. Hendershot tried to get a stay on the case to allow Orly Taitz time to seek admission in Alabama to represent Hendershot. Judge Lee would have no part of this. The Democratic Party was ably represented by attorney Barry Ragsdale who appeared as a guest on RC Radio on January 17, 2012. Barry discussed this and several other cases in which he successfully defended the Democratic Party.
