Littering charge against Idaho supremacist tossed




COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho (AP) _ Misdemeanor littering charges have
been dropped against three white supremacists who were accused of
spreading racist pamphlets on Coeur d'Alene yards.

The Coeur d'Alene Press reports that Deputy City Attorney Anna
Eckhart says the charges were dropped last week because the fliers
weren't any different than any other political handout _ and that
means they're perfectly legal to distribute.

Paul Mullet, who was 45 at the time, and 27-year-old Kevin
McGurre were ticketed for littering in August. Thirty-one-year-old
Todd Weston was given a ticket for aiding a misdemeanor. The men,
all from Athol, were distributing fliers that had a picture of a
white woman and stated ``Love Your White Race.''

Mullet says he plans to spread more of the fliers across
northern Idaho.
