Senator Jerry Moran wants to know whether Department of Justice protocols have changed since a white supremacist now accused of killing three people in Kansas was given leniency a quarter-century ago.
Moran sent a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder on Friday urging a review of relevant DOJ policies that led to a five-year sentence for Frazier Glenn Miller in 1987 for possessing stolen military weapons and declaring war on the country.
Evidence recovered from the home of the southwest Missouri man accused of killing three people outside two Kansas Jewish facilities indicates he researched directions to synagogues and kosher places to eat.
Self-described white supremacist Frazier Glenn Cross has been charged with shootings outside the Jewish Community Center in Overland Park, Kansas, and at Village Shalom senior care facility nearby.
69-year-old William Corporon, his 14-year-old grandson, Reat Griffin Underwood, and 53-year-old Terri LaManno were killed in the shootings.

The man who shot and killed three people Sunday near Kansas City will face federal hate crime charges for the attacks at a Jewish community center and a Jewish retirement home, authorities said Monday.
"This was a hate crime," Overland Park, Kan., Police Chief John Douglass told reporters at a midday news conference.
Frazier Glenn Cross, also known as Glenn Miller, is already in jail. The 73-year-old man was taken into custody shortly after the attacks and is accused of premeditated murder.
