(SPOKANE, Wash.) – The Aryan Nations may soon reestablish themselves in northern Idaho.
Shaun Winkler, who ran unsuccessfully for Bonner County Sheriff earlier this year, said a supporter is offering his group eight acres of land near the town of Priest River.
Winkler, who doesn’t shy away about his white supremacist views, hopes to develop the property as a gathering place for supporters and others with similar views.
A lawsuit bankrupted the group in 2000, which forced the closure of its Hayden Lake compound a short time later.
