Lake Worth Commish Hopeful Scott Maxwell Tied to White Supremicists?
|Maxwell: The crusade temporarily suspended|
Maxwell is one of the leading rabble rousers on illegal immigration: He sees the issue as a major problem facing Lake Worth. He's joined by a vocal coterie of local frothers including blogger Lynn Anderson. Until recently, Maxwell broadcast a radio program devoted to the subject, "Connecting the Dots on Illegal Immigration," which ran Thursdays at 8 pm on WBZT 1230 Clear Channel.
The program has been shelved, at least temporarily, along with Maxwell's web site, bordercontrolnow.com, in the weeks before the election. His Twitter site, NoToAmnesty, is still up -- although Maxwell's last tweet was in August ("bet you didn't know that california must open new school every day in perpetuity to keep up with immigration problems!" reads one of his last posts).
It seems Maxwell, who was recently endorsed by the Palm Beach Post for the District 1 Commission seat, is cooling off the rhetoric, at least until after the election.
