In the weeks after nine members of  the Michigan-based Christian militia group, Hutaree, were arrested for plotting to harm police officers, Allentown-based band Poker Face has come under fire from the Anti-Defamation League. (ADL needs to go find 'something' constructive to do and mind their own business... ~ S.I.A.)

Hutaree uses a song from Poker Face in a training video and Barry Morrison, ADL regional director for eastern Pennsylvania, says the band advocates an anti-government and anti-immigration ideology.

"The rhetoric being fed to them through the violence of these songs are pretty violent," Morrison said.
Paul Topete, singer and guitarist for the four-man band, refutes the ADL claims and states his position as being opposed to illegal immigration and government corruption.
"We don't fear where the truth might lead us," Topete said. "We love the truth. Remember, only lies need laws to support it."

Topete claims that the only connection to the two-decade-old band and Hutaree was to grant permission for the song's use.
