Brett Blomme Drag Queen Story Hour
The criminal complaint filed states that Blomme was uploading content to Kik through the username ‘DomMasterbb’. The case first came to light after the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children was tipped about the Kik user. Led by Special Agent Tamar Taubel of the Division of Criminal Investigations, investigators were able to tie that account to Blomme via his email accounts. The complaint also states that Blomme uploaded images from a friend’s house.
The friend is simply referred to as ‘Individual B’ in the complaint. According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, that individual “confirmed to investigators that Blomme was at his home on days that the friend’s internet service showed uploads by DomMasterBB of child p*rnography.”
Further investigations revealed uploads at Blomme’s house and the judge’s chambers.
