Orange County executive demands investigation into KKK recruitment effortsPosted: Updated:
The news of Ku Klux Klan recruitment cards being discovered around Orange County has made local leaders take action Friday.
Orange County Executive Edward Diana says he has called on the county Human Rights Commission to launch an investigation into the matter. The cards were found in public places such as bars, rest rooms and post offices in Port Jervis and Deerpark recently. Deerpark is a conservative town with a lower average income than the rest of Orange County, reasons the town supervisor believes it made it a target for the Ku Klux Klan.
News of the KKK business cards have reached a federal level as well. The FBI in Goshen has been apprised of the situation. Still, it is not known what exactly can be done since no laws have been broken.
