SFWA member arrested for child porn

SFWA member and convicted child molester Ed Kramer has gotten himself in legal trouble again:
Former owner and co-founder of Dragon Con, Edward E. Kramer, was charged with possession of child pornography again. This comes after an investigation into Kramer et al for attempting to hack the court’s computers.

According to WSB-TV Atlanta, Kramer had a warrant issued against him on Monday, September 30th, 2019 for having multiple pictures of child pornography.

The warrant was issued after investigators began scouring Kramer’s computer and found that he and a private investigator, TJ Ward, attempted to hack into a county’s computers because another judge – Kathryn Schrader – suspected a prosecutor of monitoring her computer. Kramer, Ward, and Schrader were apparently all working together to hack into the county’s systems, but the trio’s plot was foiled when a wiretap and additional investigators began investigating Kramer, Ward, and Schrader, as detailed in a separate report by WSB-TV from back in mid-September.
Kramer's fellow SFWA members, including the current president, tried to pretend he wasn't a member the last time he was in the news, back in 2014. But, then as now, he was merely inactive, which meant that he hadn't paid his dues while he was in prison; he was still listed in the online member's directory.

To the best of my knowledge, he has still not been expelled from the organization, which has a long and sordid history of defending him.

3 or 4 now confirmed pedos currently in the SFWA who haven't been kicked out.

1 politically right individual who was kicked out.

Wish this was shocking, sadly it's not.

Just about everything you thought you knew about this world turned out to be a lie boys. And you're just scratching the surface.

Blogger Difster October 03, 2019 7:51 PM  

Of course now they can use the hacking, etc. as an excuse to get rid of him but they'll just refer to "criminal activity" instead of the pedo garbage.

Gotta love a massive "I told you so". The very best schadenfreude.

They'll probably claim he found the porn on the judge's computer.

A pedo, a PI, and judge, working together to infiltrate the court's computer network ....

Yeah, sheep, keep telling yourselves Pizzagate is a whack-out conspiracy theory. Baaa .....

Well, it is the next frontier in civil rights, you know. What do you expect them to do? They have to support these brave pedophiles’ rights activists.

Let me see if I understand this:

A prosecutor, a judge and a private investigator are all involved in committing crimes...with the nexus being a pedophile.

Are you f*cking kidding me.

Blogger Stilicho October 03, 2019 9:18 PM  

I knew about the judge and the PI, but had no idea Kramer was involved. Makes me wonder what else that lot were involved in and with whom.

I made a similar comment three times over at an RPG site and the comment disappeared all three times.

Of all the nasty wormholes that are being uncovered in the 21st c, I never would have guessed this one when I was reading I, Robot as a little kid! Horrifying.

Child porn is unfortunately a lot more prevelant than you might think. For some reason the Dutch police have a rather good Internet child porn unit. They would regularly share details of suspected offenders with other countries. The make up of offenders is from across the strata of society, from teenagers to politicians. Almost always male, the only women generally took the hit for a partner or son.

Blogger Jim October 03, 2019 11:46 PM  

Vox, I find your foray into the thriller genre to be too on-the-nose. You gotta soften the narrative to maintain verisimilitude or no one's going to be able to suspend their disbelief. I mean, did you really need to make the con organizer a hypocritical virtue signaler? And Dragon Con? Spend longer than five seconds coming up with a name. You normally do much better work.

Why not? How much of the system runs on black mail?

Oh vey, I am shocked, I tell ya!

They should really just offer combined memberships in some of these nerdy scifi/fantasy organizations and NAMBLA. It seems there is a big overlap in interests.

Why do pedophiles like to mimic Santa Claus.

In the photos a the link he's sure wearing a cute little hat.

A sure sign that we should bless him so God will bless us, huh?

Just another Bad Apple case of a coincidental nexus of corruption and kiddie porn. Nothing to see here...

Blogger Gregory the Great October 04, 2019 6:43 AM  

I wonder what the genre of Science Fiction and Fantasy has to do with this. Active "openness" for different socio-sexual norms, transcending traditional terrestrial patterns of thought and ethics etc.

SFWA - protecting pedophiles since before Marion Zimmer Bradley was raping her daughter.

Blogger Damelon Brinn October 04, 2019 9:42 AM  

A prosecutor, a judge and a private investigator are all involved in committing crimes...with the nexus being a pedophile.

That's the safest setup. It's like the movie trope where a stranger gets in trouble in a small town, and is totally screwed because all the people in charge are in cahoots (or aliens, or satanists, or whatever). A judge, a prosecutor, and a cop working together can bury anything as long as a higher authority doesn't come along to take a very close look.

Once upon a time, the hero would have been a plucky journalist who stumbled over the truth and got it out to the presses just before they killed him. That's laughable at this point, though. Now we have to count on hackers to do it.

Blogger rcocean October 04, 2019 11:51 AM  

Of course Kramer hasn't been expelled. It's not like he's done anything really, really wrong - like vote for Trump. BTW, does SWFA support NAMBLA? Or are they just neutral?

Blogger rcocean October 04, 2019 11:52 AM  

I assume if I got to John Scalzi's twitter feed I will see tons of snark and scathing attacks on Kramer. Right?

Blogger MJ October 04, 2019 12:00 PM  

Couldn't help but notice the size of Mr Kramer's hat. Also, he just about proves physiognomy is real
