FBI Informant Who Blew the Cover on a Murderous Right-Wing Domestic Terror Group Speaks Out

This week, both Cox and Vernon were sentenced to almost 26 years in federal prison. Fulton is now writing a book.
Though the Alaska Peacemaker Militia is essentially disbanded, the Southern Poverty Law Center estimates that the number of Patriot groups, including armed militias, “grew by 755 percent in the first three years of the Obama administration – from 149 at the end of 2008 to 1,274 in 2011.” NRA-backed Sen. Bob Casey, (D-Pa.) , said this week that in the wake of the Newtown massacre, he is concerned about the number of militias: “I do not know how many of my constituents are in the militia category, but as someone who loves his country and sees the government as a force of good for its citizens, I am clearly alarmed by this segment of our society.”
Correction: An earlier version of this post quoted Miller spokesman Bill Peck as saying he did not remember seeing Bill Fulton the night of the Republican primary in August, 2010. Peck has since clarified that he was “blurring” primary night and Election Night in November. He worked closely with Miller on Election Night, but “on primary night didn’t know Fulton from Adam.”
