Minuteman Founder Being Chased By Bounty Hunter, Ex-Minuteman
The man who owns a bounty hunting firm tracking Minuteman founder Chris Simcox is himself a former Minuteman, one who has personal beef with Simcox.
Simcox, who co-founded the Minuteman Project in 2005 to protect the U.S.-Mexico border from illegal immigrants, has been court-ordered to stay away from his ex-wife and to surrender his firearms to the Scottsdale Police Department. His ex-wife requested the order after, she says, Simcox pointed a gun at her and threatened to kill her and her children.
According to news reports, Simcox has not been officially served with the order. A spokesman for the Scottsdale PD told TPM that they have no record of Simcox turning in his weapons.
Simcox — who is also an erstwhile Senate candidate and a former adviser to J.D. Hayworth’s Senate campaign — could not be reached for comment.
