KKK stepping up spread of leaflets in several states

KKK stepping up spread of leaflets in several states: TALLASSEE, Ala. — An organization affiliated with the Ku Klux Klan has been leaving recruitment leaflets around here, and residents aren't happy.

Imperial Wizard Frank Ancona, or president, of the Traditionalist American Knights of the Ku Klux Klan confirmed Tuesday that the fliers were from a local chapter of the national organization based in Potosi, Mo. Ancona said local chapters are supposed to work within their communities.

"It looks like they are trying to do their job out there," Ancona said.

But it was a job many residents here didn't want done. Tallassee Police Chief Jimmy Rodgers said he began receiving complaints Sunday about recruitment packages — a Ziploc bag containing rocks and a flier — left in people's front yards.
