Edgar Steele's Drunken Public Defender
The so-called establishment media coverage has subsided, preparatory to sending the whole revolting case down the memory hole and burying Ed Steele alive.
There are supposedly plans for an appeal of Steele’s grotesque conviction, and Cyndi Steele is doing a lot of interviews raising hell about the farce wherein her husband was not allowed to call witnesses in his defense, but mostly these interviews she’s doing are with quote-unquote “our” internet and other media, so she won’t be reaching the White community itself but only that small portion of it that is racially aware. In addition there is the question of how much an appeal will cost, and who will pay for it.
One interesting Steele-related item did surface in the media this week. It seems that Edgar Steele’s first court-appointed attorney, a guy named Roger Peven, is being eased out of his position as the lead federal public defender due to being a drunk and an asshole. On May the 17th there was an article in the Spokane Spokesman-Review by Thomas Clouse, to that effect.
Apparently Peven once took a leave of absence to spend thirty days in a rehab clinic to dry out, at government expense of course, and he is now being sued by three of the attorneys on his own staff for basically being a jackass. Well, if that ain’t the pot calling the kettle black.
Bear in mind that for almost eight of the nine months prior to Edgar Steele’s trial, this Roger Peven guy was the bozo in charge of his defense. Beautiful. No wonder nothing got done for eight months.
This Spokesman-Review article also reveals a couple of more interesting items of information. It seems that Roger Peven is being paid $155,000 per year in taxpayer money to do nothing, at least according to the lawsuit, and also he is now the defense attorney for Kevin Harpham, the supposed maker of the Bionic Backpack in Spokane last January.
I’m sure Harpham is filled with confidence at the prospect of having as his defense attorney an ageing clown who is a self-admitted alcoholic, who is being sued by his own staff for paranoid and irrational behavior, and who appears to be on the verge of losing his job due to incompetence. Great judicial system we’ve got in this country, eh?
