Local residents receive letters soliciting them to join the Ku Klux Klan
Residents in West Ashley's Pierpont neighborhood recently reported unwanted notices asking them to join the Ku Klux Klan.
One of the people who turned flyers over to Charleston County sheriff's deputies was a black girl.
Reached in Harrison, Ark., KKK national director Thomas Arthur Robb said he couldn't confirm that the solicitations came from his organization, but he said members frequently take the initiative to recruit new members.
Asked about the girl who found the flyers, Robb said, "If a black person got it, it's just an accident . . . We're not trying to recruit blacks."
Charleston County sheriff's Maj. Jim Brady said the flyers reflect no illegal activity, but that investigators logged them into evidence and documented the incident. Read more in Saturday's editions of The Post and Courier.
