CBE Candidate Slams Aryan Rumor

Local bloggers, social media users and callers to the Press newsroom spent time Thursday speculating and asking questions about a website promoting Zone 2 school trustee candidate, Tom Hamilton (shown in photo from his Facebook page), and Zone 3 candidate, Terri Seymour. They discovered that the site, idahoc4be.org, lists its mailing address as a Coeur d’Alene post office box number once assigned to the Church of Jesus Christ Christian, the white supremacist church once led by Richard Butler, the now deceased leader of the Aryan Nations. The website belongs to Citizens for Better Education, described as a “nonprofit association.” “I am not a CBE member, nor are they affiliated with the Aryan Nations,” Hamilton told the Press. “Phone numbers get recycled, post office boxes get recycled. It’s just a very unfortunate coincidence”/Maureen Dolan, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.

Question: Should the post office retire the P.O. Box number formerly held by Richard Butler's Church of Jesus Christ Christian?
