COVINGTON, Ga. (January 23, 2013)--Sheriff's deputies in the Atlanta area are investigating whether any laws were broken when fliers inviting residents to join the Ku Klux Klan were placed outside of homes.
Newton County sheriff's Deputy Courtney Morrison said investigators are reviewing the fliers to make sure they don't contain any inappropriate information or threats.
The Newton Citizen reported that the fliers included a drawing of a robed klansman standing in front of a tree with a caption that said, "Join the KKK - Loyal White Knights."
CBS Atlanta reports that police collected more than 30 of the fliers that were folded and packed into plastic sandwich bags and tossed at the end of driveways in the Covington area, about 35 miles southeast of Atlanta.
