Sullivan reveals he’s not Bonnie Offit and J.B. Handley must never mention Paul Offit again

Sullivan is a writer for the Left Brain Right Brain blog where he debunks a great deal of anti-vaccine lies. A few months ago, J.B. Handley tried to “investigate” to determine the true identity of Sullivan and because Handley is a complete idiot, he falsely concluded that Sullivan is none other than Bonnie Offit, wife of Dr. Paul Offit. This is because Handley’s “investigation” led him to the conclusion that Sullivan fits the following criteria:

  1. Female
  2. American
  3. A doctor or scientist
  4. Not the parent of an autistic child.

How convinced was Handley that Sullivan was Bonnie Offit? So much so that he publicly promised that if Sullivan’s identity was revealed and turned out not to be Bonnie Offit, Handley would never write about or mention Paul Offit again.

But now Sullivan has outed himself, revealing he is none other than Matt Carey…who I’ve never even heard of. He’s an industrial researcher in computer hardware and has an autistic child. So Handley failed on almost every possible level.

So will Handley honor his promise and never talk about Offit again? Or, liar and coward that he is, will he move the goalpost and backpedal? I’m betting real money it’ll be the latter.

    Thanks Skepacabra.

    I’ve started a list of those noting that Sullivan is Matt Carey, and who are waiting for Mr. Handley to make good on his promises. The list is at the bottom of this post.

    Handley has caved. Text at the link above.

  3. […] As I reported two days ago, the blogger previously known only as Sullivan has revealed himself to be known other than Mark Carey, an industrial researcher in computer hardware and has an autistic child. And this bit of news was very unfortunate for professional reality denier J.B. Handley, who vowed several months ago that if Sullivan was revealed to be someone other than Bonnie Offit, he would–well, here’s how he put it [emphasis mine]: Bonnie Offit, or Sullivan for that matter, I have a simple offer: If you can produce a dad with a child with autism with a remarkable grasp of the medical and scientific literature who blogs under the name Sullivan, a man who has an inordinate grasp of the details of your husband’s patents, lawsuits, published studies, and web habits, I will make sure that the pauloffit.com website is given to you and your husband for good.
