Beyond the Bombing:
Iowa


Militia groups have formed in lowa, but there is little evidence of their size and influence.

Paul Stauffer, an Air Force veteran living in Cedar Rapids and the self-described "national contact" for the lowa Militias has claimed that his organization operates in 35 counties; he has not offered specific membership figures. He contends that lowa militia members are concerned with "intelligence" gathering activities. and that the group maintains contacts with militia leaders across the country.

A May 3, 1995, Cedar Rapids meeting organized by Stauffer found many among the audience of 60 parroting the fevered anti-government conspiracy theories of the militia movement.
