Stevens County man accused of posing as Mexican drug cartel to extort members of his own right-wing militia
A nationwide arrest warrant has been issued for a onetime candidate for Stevens County sheriff who allegedly tried to extort members of his right-wing militia group through anonymous written threats backed by insinuations they came from a Mexican drug cartel.

James “Russell” Bolton, 51, also is accused of pushing an associate down a flight of stairs and trying to suffocate him with a plastic bag in Spokane, according to records filed last month in Stevens County Superior Court. In that incident, Bolton allegedly claimed his own wife had been kidnapped and was being held for a $100,000 ransom.

Bolton ran an unsuccessful write-in campaign to lead the Stevens County Sheriff’s Office in 2010, finishing last in a four-way primary with about 13 percent of the vote. He had the endorsement of Richard Mack, the former sheriff of Graham County, Arizona, who became a prominent right-wing activist in the 1990s when the National Rifle Association recruited him to sue the federal government over new gun restrictions.
:snippity:
...Bolton has led a militia group called the Stevens County Assembly. ... “I was advised numerous times of Bolton’s military background, counter-insurgency training, him being a private investigator and working with various law enforcement agencies in North Carolina and Virginia, and the fact that he currently trains members of the Stevens County Assembly in hand-to-hand combat,” the detective wrote.
:snippity:
On April 3, Bolton allegedly pushed the man down a flight of stairs, causing his head to hit the concrete floor and leaving a large cut, according to court records. As the man tried to get up, Bolton allegedly tried to pull a plastic bag over his head.
Oh, noes -- the "Mexican Drug Cartel" is INSIDE THE MILITIA!

Seriously - that article is one hair-raising read. Hope they catch this asshole.

Militia leader wanted by federal authorities will be extradited back to Washington state
PRINCETON — A militia leader from Washington state who was wanted by federal authorities for extortion and attempted theft waived extradition Thursday in Mercer County Circuit Court.

James Russell Bolton Jr., 51, of Stevens County, Wash., was arrested Monday evening at his parents’ home on Hilltop Lane in the Princeton area, according to Sgt. A.P. Christian with the Princeton detachment of the West Virginia State Police. Federal law enforcement agencies had information that Bolton was in the Mercer County area.

Bolton was brought Thursday morning before Circuit Court Judge Mark Wills for an extradition hearing. Wills informed Bolton that he had the right to have an extradition hearing in West Virginia. If he chose to fight extradition, Washington state authorities would have to come to West Virginia and testify that he was the James Bolton they were seeking.

Bolton will be held at the Southern Regional Jail in Beaver until Washington state authorities arrive to take him into custody, Wills said.

That IS a whole bundle o' crazy, but I must admit to having a slight admiration for the persuasive skills of anyone who can attack a guy, push him down stairs, try to suffocate him with a plastic bag over the head....and still the guy didn't mind liquidating his life savings/stock portfolio for a $100k ransom to free Boltons wife.

He should be selling cars...

James Russell Bolton Jr., the leader of a small militia in Eastern Washington who’s accused of extorting his own militia members in an elaborate scheme involving a phony Mexican cartel, will plead not guilty, his lawyer told TPM in an email Wednesday.


Bolton was arrested at his parents’ house in West Virginia last month and was eventually transferred by U.S. Marshals back to Spokane, where he spent Tuesday night, Boltons’ attorney Steve Graham said.

Looks like he'll be arraigned on Tuesday. Not sure why so many redundant entries in the court record or why they are talking about civil harassment.

Is it perhaps one per person or department seeking protection from harassment?
