Questions Raised About FBI Informant Who Played Key Role in Political Campaigns

While William Fulton was acting as a key undercover FBI informant in a case involving a militia leader, the Alaskan store owner was heavily involved in political campaigns, the LA Times reports.

Fulton helped bring down Schaffer Cox, the leader of the Alaska Peacemaker Militia.

Now many are questioning why an FBI informant was involved in political campaigns, the LA Times wrote.

In 2010, Fulton played a role in the campaigns of conservative former radio host Eddie Burke and U.S. Senate candidate Joe Miller.

“They had absolutely nothing ever to do with anything like that,” Fulton told the Los Angeles Times on Monday. “The only thing that they ever asked me to do was to look into Schaeffer Cox and a few other people. The only thing they said [about the political activities] was, ‘Hmm, Bill, maybe you shouldn’t be doing this.”
