Deborah Campbell told The Express-Times of Easton, Pa., a neighbor made false claims to child welfare officials.
"My husband and I would never abuse our children, and he would never harm anybody," she said.
Campbell and her husband, Heath, became famous or notorious when a local store refused to put their son's name on a birthday cake. Their daughters' names are Joyce Lynn Aryan Nation Campbell and Honszlynn Hinler Jeannie Campbell.
After the New Jersey Division of Youth and Family Services took the children away Jan. 9, a Hunterdon County family judge imposed a gag order. But Campbell said she was going public because the family needs a lawyer.
"I just want my children back," she said. "I'm begging people to stand behind us and for an attorney to come forward."
