Wife Of Far-Right Extremist Group Oath Keepers' Leader Is Asking For Public Donations To Escape Her Scary Marriage

The estranged wife of the leader of the far-right extremist group the Oath Keepers is pleading for donations to fund her divorce.

48-year-old Tasha Adams has set up a GoFundMe campaign, requesting $30,000 in donations so she can cover pending legal bills and hire a new attorney to complete her divorce from Stewart Rhodes, which she had filed for over 3 years ago.

."It's certainly not easy to find a lawyer willing to go head to head against a person who is not only a graduate of Yale Law but also commands their own private army, as well as having access to a team of equally infamous attorneys surrounding him," Adams wrote on the GoFundMe. "Nonetheless, I am confident that somewhere out there is an advocate willing to be my huckleberry."

Adams said that her initial Law firm dropped her after she failed to pay off the fees. Initially, she did not approach another lawyer to handle her divorce case. But during the Capitol Riots, she realized just how dangerous Rhodes could be, and was hence forced to make a GoFundMe to divorce Rhodes as soon as possible.

"For obvious reasons, I am very very hesitant to go public with this, but after a whole lot of thought, I feel I just can not move forward any other way. I am feeling a bit emboldened by the spotlight now on the STBX, and without going into specifics I'm hoping that keeps anything too crazy from happening," she wrote on the GoFundMe.

"Though I can't talk about the details of my marriage here," she wrote on her GoFundMe page, "I can tell you that it was likely about exactly what you're picturing, but probably quite a bit weirder."

Rhodes, an Army veteran, founded the Oath Keepers in 2019. Several members of his group were charged in connection with the Capitol riots. He himself was outside the Capitol on January 6 but did not go in. Rather he was in contact with his Oath Keepers recruits via phone.

Adams and Rhodes got married in 1994. So far, the fundraiser has collected $4000.
