More KKK Fliers in Iowa. This Time in Davis & Wapello Counties

Authorities report that the Ku Klux Klan is recruiting again in Iowa -- this time in Davis County and Wapello County. Numerous KKK recruiting fliers were found outside numerous residences and businesses earlier today in Agency, Bloomfield, and Eldon, IA.

As in previous KKK incidents in the recent past (here and here), the fliers were discovered in plastic bags that were weighted down with rocks:
The fliers refer to the "Traditionalist American Knights of the Ku Klux Klan" and list a 24-hour "klanline." Wapello County Sheriff Mark Miller says many people find the fliers offensive, but they contain protected speech. He says someone distributing the items could possibly be charged with littering.
Both Davis and Wapello Counties are located in the southeast corner of Iowa. These counties are most likely being targeted by KKK groups in nearby Missouri. Both counties are primarily white (98% in Davis County and 96% in Wapello County).
