An FBI agent testified Tuesday that a Neo-Nazi on trial in federal court in Chicago once posted potentially harmful information about a popular African American Miami Herald columnist Leonard Pitts, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

The agent’s testimony came in the trial of Neo-Nazi William White, who is charged with advocating violence on his website overthrow.com against Chicago juror Mark Hoffman, who helped convict white supremacist Matt Hale in 2004, the paper reported.

White wrote that Hoffman was a “gay, Jewish anti-racist” who wrongfully helped convict Hale, who had ordered his head of security — who turned out to be an FBI informant — to kill U.S. District Judge Joan Lefkow, the Sun-Times reported. At some point, two family members of Judge Lefkow’s were murdered by a disgruntled litigant not affiliated with a white supremacist group, the Sun-Times reported.

In the case of Leonard Pitts, White criticized his column, used the n-word and posted personal information about Pitts including his wife’s name and a home address, according to testimony reported by the Chicago Sun-Times.

The FBI agent testified that when the Miami Herald managing editor asked White of Roanoke, Va., to take the info down, White replied by email: “Frankly, if some loony took the info and killed him, I wouldn’t shed a tear.”
