OPINION AND EDITORIAL
New concerns of potential “felony charity fraud” are orbiting Timothy Charles Holmseth of East Grand Forks, Minnesota. Holmseth is a social media podcast side-kick of inmate Field McConnell, Plum City, Wisconsin, presently held on $100,000 bond for allegedly stalking a female Florida attorney in Broward County.
Both Field McConnel and Timothy Holmseth have apparently raised hundreds of thousands of dollars to fund a “Pentagon Pedophile Task Force” as part of a pedo child recovery operation, also know as the Childrens’ Crusade. However, no such organization appears to exist in the State of Wisconsin system of records.
As it turns out, the video wasn’t an empty threat. A few days later, somebody managed to unmask and dox two Q-Anon promoters, one a 50-year-old East Grand Forks resident named Timothy Holmseth. His phone number, home address, email address, and date of birth all appeared online.
Holmseth has confirmed a few things. Yes, all the information posted about him online was correct. And he’s an ardent Q follower and supporter. But he doesn’t think Anonymous was really behind the doxxing. He believes it was a secretive “group of child traffickers and pornographers,” allegedly involved in the 2009 disappearance of a 5-year-old girl from Florida named Haleigh Cummings.
As recently as 2017, a Florida man named Thomas Olsen — who claims to have never met Holmseth — took him to District Court, saying Holmseth had been “attacking” him for two years with wild accusations, including that he somehow produced child pornography of the missing Florida girl, and that his lawyer, Kim Picazio, was blackmailing Florida officials to let him off easy.
The complaint says Olsen and Picazio were in good company — that Holmseth also accused the FBI, CIA, police departments, and the governors of Florida and New Jersey of being a part of a “shadow government” child trafficking scheme.

WISCONSIN’S OWN WIRE FRAUD LAW
The focus of § 943.89 and § 943.90, respectively the mail and wire fraud statutes, appears to be the harm done to the intermediary financial institution. Interestingly, the wire fraud statute is entitled “Wire fraud against a financial institution,” but it provides that “[w]hoever transmits or causes to be transmitted electrically, electromagnetically, or by light any signal, writing, image, sound, or data for the purpose of committing a financial crime is guilty of a Class H felony.” Wis. Stat. § 943.90.
