You may have seen or read about the threats by the ‘hacktivist’ known as Anonymous saying they will expose 1,000 United States politicians that have ties to the KKK. Well, they have started to make good on their promise to leak the names.
This video has been circulating the internet by the unknown group of hackers with a decentralized command structure, that claims to expose members of the KKK participating in the US Government as Senators and Mayors across the country.
Not only does the video reveal the names of the politicians, but also which KKK group they are affiliated with as well. It is unknown the source of affiliation or how Anonymous received the information.
The video states they are not going to put the home address of these KKK politicians out to the general public in fear of someone retaliating against these racist. However, they do put their full name, cities they work in and the address of their political office in the video.
The hackers at Anonymous have rarely provided a “ threat” they didn’t deliver on in full. Thus, we are expecting additional names, faces and KKK ties to be revealed. Here is a partial list of USA KKK Politicians according to Anonymous:
Senator Tom Tillis from North Carolina
Senator John Cornyn, Texas
Senator, John Horne Iverson, Georgia
Senator, Dan Coats, Indiana
Mayor, Madeline Rogero, Knoxville TN
Mayor Jim Mayer, Lexington KY
Mayor Kent Guinn, Ocala, Florida
Mayor Tom Henry, Fort Wayne Indiana.
The group also released a statement. Find that below…
