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.”

WASHINGTON — The self-proclaimed commander of a Neo Nazi group in Roanoke, Va., was convicted on Friday in federal court in Virginia  of intimidating individuals by threatening them and posting some of their names, addresses, phone numbers and other personal information on  a Neo-Nazi website, authorities said.

From 2006 to 2008, William A. “Bill” White of the neo-Nazi group American National Socialist Workers Party,  went after a bank employee over a financial dispute and others involved in a federal  anti-discriminatory housing lawsuit, authorities charged.

“These communications included late night telephone calls to the victims’ homes, during which he would identify himself as the leader of a white supremacist group; emails to the victims in which he would make threatening statements; and posting the victims’ names, addresses, phone numbers, and other personal information on neo-Nazi Web sites, sometimes accompanied by language advocating the murder of the targeted victim,” the Justice Department said in a press release.

He was also convicted of  threatening a human rights lawyer from Canada and a university administrator responsible for implementing a diversity program, the Justice Department said.
