Notorious U.S. domestic terrorist Ted Kaczynski reportedly sent a letter to a journalist stating “some creep in Santa Barbara, California,” has been sending letters to the media claiming to be correspondence from him.

The man known as the Unabomber sent a letter to BuzzFeed news reporter Andrew Kaczynski (no relation) with a cover letter which read, “I invite you to post the enclosed note on the internet.”

The letter itself said the “creep” has sent letters to journalists “expressing what he pretends are my opinions.”

Ted Kaczynski’s letter questioned journalists for not looking at where the letters came from as, “if a letter has been postmarked in California, then obviously I could not have sent it.”

He also pointed out that the handwritten notes do not match his handwriting before going on to slam journalists for not checking the handwriting samples, stating, “many journalists are too stupid or too lazy to take such precautions, so they’ve been duped by the aforesaid creep.”

Ted Kaczynski is serving eight life sentences without the possibility of parole in a prison in Florence, Colo. Over a 17-year span from 1978 to 1995 he mailed or hand-delivered 16 bombs which left three people dead and injured another 23.
