Richard Kreimer: The Man Who Stinks for a Living

Posted by Dave Blount at April 28, 2005 8:47 AM

CBS 2 reports that Richard Kreimer, a derelict who shook down a town in New Jersey for a small fortune after being ejected from a library, is now suing a bus company, alleging that it refused to let him board buses. He already has another suit going against New Jersey Transit for allegedly not allowing him and other bums to make squatter settlements out of train stations.

In the bus suit, he claims that either buses won't stop for him, or they slam the door in his face after letting all the people who have taken a shower recently onto the bus. Pabco Transit's president denies allegations that the company has ever refused service to the homeless.

New Jersey Transit has declined to comment on its own case with Kreimer, who is evidently hoping to follow up on his big 1991 score, when he raked in $230,000 for smelling so bad as to get thrown out of a library in Morristown, NJ. That time Kreimer handed over half the loot to his lawyers. Wiser this time around, he is acting as his own attorney in both the New Jersey Transit and Pabco Transit shakedowns, so he can keep all the cash for himself.

In case anyone is the least bit tempted to feel sorry for this parasite, here's a little background:

Richard Kreimer grew up in a prosperous family and inherited money. He "embraced failure" according to former friends, many of whom he exploited by asking for emergency loans he never repaid. They attempted to help him get his life together and set up job interviews. He blew them off and started living in the streets, refusing to enter the local Market Street Mission program because of its "religious element."

He was part of a growing mob of derelicts who took over the Morristown library, causing librarians to quit in protest, complaining that they were constantly harassed on the job by street people, the aggressively disrespectful Kreimer in particular. In an attempt to take back the library for the taxpayers who financed it, the governing board barred people with offensive bodily hygiene and banned staring at other patrons.

Combining "the ego of a rock star with the vindictiveness of a Mafia don," Kreimer used some of the legal knowledge he had picked up at the library to strike back at civilization. The legal system, thoroughly infested with left-wing fools who can be counted on to side with lowlife against decent citizens, supported him throughout his campaign, until Morristown was finally forced to knuckle under and pay out.

"We knew that some of the cops stood to lose their homes to pay damages if we lost in court," says Kathleen O'Neill Margiotta, then town council president.

Flush with cash, Kreimer complained of being inundated by requests for loans. "But hey," he said. "I can't be a banker to every person on the street with a problem."

Now the money has been blown, and he's back for more, smelly, greedy, and obnoxious as ever.

This is the kind of guy who benefits when bleeding heart moonbattery gets out of control.


Kreimer makes his demands before the Court.
