Paper Terrorism

Linda Wertheimer talks with NPR's Howard Berkes about the fraudulent activities of the separatist group The Republic of Texas. In recent months, Richard McLaren, the "ambassador" of the group, has been accused of assaulting his neighbors by filing bogus property liens against them and then threatening them with machine guns. The group has called for the independence of Texas.
