File under "Stupid White (Aryan) Men"

Found this over at Nezua's place:

Click the pic to read the article. Some more from another article:
Strom—a well-known white supremacist and leader of the National Vanguard—was arrested in January of this year and initially charged with two counts of possession of child porn and witness tampering. In April, the prosecution brought forward more charges, including a count of child solicitation.

At the May 30 hearing, prosecutors revealed that they will soon be adding more charges as the result of new evidence gained from a computer hard-drive. In a motion to sever the new evidence from the current case, Strom’s attorney, Assistant Federal Public Defender Andrea Harris, disputed whether the images seized from the computer are of children under the age of 18. “There is no evidence that the images referenced in the superseding indictment from the 40 GB depict minors, and other evidence indicates that those images in fact depict adults,” reads the motion filed by Harris.

The motion also took issue with the government’s contention that Strom solicited a minor identified only as “A.A.” Strom sent gifts to A.A. and pictures of A.A. were found on one of Strom’s computers. Harris explained that A.A. was a friend of one of his children. Strom also allegedly sent A.A. a sonnet. “There is not a shred of evidence that such ‘sonnet’ was ever conveyed in any way, shape or form to anyone, much less to A.A.,” the motion states.

As the trial was originally scheduled for late June, Harris requested a delay to view some of the new evidence, which includes videotape interviews of two minors. Deferring a decision on the motion to sever, Judge Moon indicated he is likely to grant the delay. The new trial date would likely be set no sooner than the fall.
And:
Until he got busted this month for possession of child pornography and witness tampering, few knew Kevin Alfred Strom was more than just our friendly neighborhood white supremacist. A resident of Earlysville, Strom would collaborate on racist, anti-Semitic “American Dissident Voices” radio broadcasts, post nationalist messages on www.cvillenews.com and was involved in a 2005 incident in which copies of “The Aryan Alternative” were distributed all over Charlottesville.

But apparently he is much bigger than that. An intelligence report from the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) (www.splcenter.org), which tracks hate groups, describes Strom as “a major American neo-Nazi leader for almost 20 years.” Strom’s organization, National Vanguard, is an offshoot of National Alliance (www.natall.com) and maintains a “news” website and chapters in at least a dozen states (www.nationalvanguard.com).

On January 4, Strom was arrested at his home in Earlysville by federal agents for possessing child pornography on his computer, and for witness tampering. Strom allegedly physically assaulted and threatened “Witness A” about the kiddie porn and other criminal activities not listed in the indictment.

Up until Strom’s second marriage, to Elisha Strom, his personal website, www.kevin-strom.com, had “a gallery of alluring photos of young girls, many of them scantily dressed, and running to shots of a teenage Brooke Shields atop a horse,” according to the SPLC. “The beauty of the women and girls of our race has inspired our greatest poets, artists, and writers throughout history,” Strom wrote. “…[I]f anything is sacred, our girls and women are, and they must be protected from the degradation and degeneracy that is inherent in multiracialism.”

Now there's a real winner for ya.
