Neo-Nazi Raises $150,000 To Fight Lawsuit — But Is ‘Hiding’

The neo-Nazi blogger Andrew Anglin has raised more than $150,000 for his legal defense after the Southern Poverty Law Center sued him for organizing an online “troll storm” against a Jewish real estate agent in Montana.

Oddly though, no one can find Anglin.

The SPLC described him as “hiding” from their lawsuit. A process server has been unable to locate Anglin at several addresses in Ohio, according to the Los Angeles Times.

The donations to Anglin and his website the Daily Stormer rolled in over the course of less than two months, the Times reported. Anglin is using the crowdfunding website called WeSearchr, which has become popular with the “alt-right.”

Last year, Anglin mounted a trolling campaign against Tanya Gersh, a real estate agent in Whitefish, Montana, claiming that she had extorted the mother of white nationalist Richard Spencer. Gersh was reportedly flooded with hundreds of anti-Semitic messages. Anglin threatened to launch an armed march down the street in Whitefish — but failed to get a permit to do so.
