The official story is now that Ed Steele never left the Spokane County jail, and that his incommunicado period of some weeks in June and early July is now a non-event.
All those deputies telling people on the phone that Ed had been removed by the U.S. Marshalls, all the visitors turned away, all the official denials and claims of ignorance as to Edgar Steele's whereabouts, the lack of phone calls to friends and supporters, the general air of stonewalling and obfuscation that went on for weeks as to just where the hell Steele was--never happened. Rite-wing paranoia. You're all crazy.
Of course we are.
According to another web site, Steele has been successfully visited by an unnamed individual. The write-up of this visit was sparse, my guess being because there were guards hovering in earshot and nothing of importance could be said.
According to Kelsey Steele, her father may be contacted at the following address:
