Edgar J. Steele, Ex-Aryan Nations Attorney, Heads to Court Charged With Murder-for-Hire Plot

Full-time bigot and occasional attorney Edgar J. Steele made a name for himself by writing racist rants on his website and unsuccessfully defending clients like the Aryan Nations and Nazi pop twins Prussian Blue. He hates black people, Jews, Hispanics, and anyone else who's not white and proud. His hatred isn't strictly race-based, however, and prosecutors say he also hates his wife and mother-in-law enough to hire a hit man to kill them both.

Steele's trial begins this week, and federal prosecutors have a mountain of evidence against him, including expected testimony from Larry Fairfax, the would-be hit man who says Steele hired him to kill the two women and a recorded jailhouse phone call in which Steele begs his wife to deny that he had anything to do with the plot--a task she's accepted wholeheartedly.

The alleged murder plan came to light when Steele's wife, Cyndi Steele, brought her car in for service at the Quick Lube in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. While changing the oil, the mechanics noticed the car had a pipe bomb affixed to the bottom, so they called police, who came and disabled it, then arrested Steele.

Fairfax later admitted he put the bomb there, but that he rigged it not to explode so he could make off with Steele's money. He also told police that Steele had wanted a pipe bomb placed on his own car so when his wife's car exploded, he could blow up his own vehicle and claim it was all a plot orchestrated by his enemies.

The alleged motive for the crime was plain old money and sex. Specifically, Steele supposedly wanted to collect on a life-insurance windfall and skip town with his Ukrainian girlfriend.

Steele, for his part, says the whole trial is a farce, and that he's simply being targeted by the government because of his ideologies. His supporters (there are indeed a few) started the website Free-Edgar-Steele.com where, beneath a wholesome-looking photo of Steele's family, it says:

His arrest has been orchestrated by a corrupt government via their armed police, in an attempt to silence his pointed, politically incorrect thought, research and commentary. He has become a POLITICAL PRISONER. This is a fraud, a "frame-up.0.

It's the typical racist nutbag defense: claim victimhood louder than the actual victims.

The good news for Steele is that if he's convicted, he'll be a shoo-in for the Aryan Brotherhood prison gang--as long as they look past the fact that he tried to blow up two white women.
