Arizona State Militia and Robert Crooks Punked by CBS 5's Morgan Loew

Kudos to Morgan Loew for infiltrating yet another militia group, the Arizona State Militia, which Loew exposed on CBS 5's Wednesday night broadcast.

Loew went undercover to document with hidden cameras a statewide recruitment drive by the organization, which bills itself as "a law-abiding, non-racist, non-radical unit."

Sure. That's why they crack jokes about assassinating U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder.

"We cannot countenance anyone who says, `Oh yeah, let's go assassinate Holder,'" kids one militia dude as a hidden cam is rolling. "As much as he may need it, you can't do it."
