APut 05/05 1746 Richard Butler SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) -- The Rev. Richard Butler's condition was upgraded to "fair and improving" Tuesday at Sacred Heart Medical Center, where he underwent heart bypass surgery four days earlier, a spokeswoman said. Butler, 69, was stricken with chest pains April 28 in a north Idaho jail where he was held after being arrested on federal sedition charges. He and other white supremacist leaders were indicted in Arkansas for allegedly plotting to overthrow the government. Transfered to a larger Spokane hospital the following day, Butler continued to experience an irregular heartbeat and underwent surgery late Friday. Butler heads the Church of Jesus Christ Christian (Aryan Nations), near Hayden Lake, Idaho. Last page !
