ACLU to represent KKK in quest to ‘adopt’ a highway in Georgia

The American Civil Liberties Union will champion a Ku Klux Klan outfit’s right to “adopt” a section of highway in Union County, an ACLU official said Tuesday — on the same day that key members of the KKK group acknowledged they live in a neighboring county.

Two weeks ago, the Georgia Department of Transportation rejected an application filed May 21 by Harley Hanson, who calls himself the exalted cyclops of the Georgia Realm of the International Keystone Knights of the KKK, and his wife.

In the application, Hanson said he could deliver at least six volunteers for road cleanup. He listed the group’s address as a post office box in Blairsville. He didn’t list any other names and has refused repeated requests by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution to say how many are in the group.
