Is there a CIA or FBI file on Hunter S. Thompson?

An enterprising blogger has decided to investigate for himself using the freedom of information act. You can check out the official reply regarding the CIA here.

The FBI have yet to reply to the blogger.

Maybe they are still upset over the mailbox incident 🙂

  1. I tried to obtain Hunter’s FBI file a year or two ago. They denied they had one. I appealed, citing Hunter’s own references to his encounters with the FBI – beginning with the mailbox incident in his childhood. They still denied having any files on him.

    • Whatever about the childhood thing, he was once contacted by the Secret Service regarding comments he made about George H. Bush. His Freak Power campaign in the Rockies attracted similar interest. The no file thing amuses me.
