Group: MLK Parade Bomb Suspect Was Avid Neo-Nazi
SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - A national organization that tracks hate groups says the man accused of trying to bomb a Martin Luther King Jr. Day parade in Spokane was an avid poster on a white supremacist Internet forum.
The Southern Poverty Law Center says Kevin Harpham made more than 1,000 postings on the Vanguard News Network site, many of them under the pseudonym "Joe Snuffy."
In 2008, a Kevin Harpham complained on the website that he couldn't access his "Joe Snuffy" account.
A 2010 posting mentioned the radioactive element thorium was useless in making bombs. Another, from 2006, said, "I can't wait till the day I snap."
A federal law enforcement official confirms investigators are reviewing online postings attributed to Harpham as part of their probe.
The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the case is ongoing.
