by Todd A. Blodgett

For years, Todd Blodgett dealt with the nastiest, professional anti-Semites and organized White Supremacists in America and Europe. As a full-time, paid FBI informant, he was on a first-name basis with money-laundering Holocaust deniers and the leaders of the KKK, the Aryan Nations, and other HATE organizations. While working in this sordid realm, Mr. Blodgett was addicted to crack cocaine - which wasn't part of his plan, when he was serving on Ronald Reagan's White House staff. The author's unlikely journey from the White House to the crack house, and then to the 'Big House' - the Washington, D.C. Jail - is a fascinating, true story. What Blodgett experienced makes 'The Wire', 'The West Wing', 'American History X', 'The Sopranos' and 'Breaking Bad' look like 'The Brady Bunch'.
Not many Americans go from working for Presidents to monitoring White Supremacists and violent, neo-Nazi skinheads, but that's what happened to author Todd Blodgett. After serving on Ronald Reagan's White House staff, and President George H.W. Bush's successful presidential campaign, Blodgett took a wrong turn and found himself ensconced in the milieu of organized White Supremacy. Eventually, he - along with America's two leading Nazis, William L. Pierce, and Willis A. Carto - co-owned the world's largest, most profitable racist music corporation. His business dealings with these savvy, money-laundering Haters led to him being recruited by the FBI and the Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF); for nearly three years, he worked as a full-time, paid, professional FBI informant, assigned to monitor the HATE movement and its top echelon. But the FBI didn't know that their informant was a junkie, heavily addicted to crack cocaine.
