BREAKING: U.S. Sen. Isakson Denies Claim of KKK Membership by Anonymous (UPDATE 1)
With additional reporting by Gloria Tatum.
(APN) ATLANTA — Anonymous, a group of online hackers, has posted what they claim to be a list of members of the Ku Klux Klan.
The list includes several elected officials, including four U.S. Senators, with Georgia’s U.S. Sen. Johnny Isakson (R-GA) making the list.
In November 2014, Anonymous had promised to do so, when they launched Operation Ku Klux Klan (KKK). They promised to post the names of 1,000 people in government who are allegedly affiliated with racist groups or the KKK.
Atlanta Progressive News called U.S. Sen. Isakson’s Washington, D.C. office twice but all the lines were busy. Then APN called his Cumberland office twice and was referred to Marie Gordon and received a voicemail recording, where APN left a message.
Marie Gordon call APN back and said the story was completely false and that U.S. Sen. Isakson has never been affiliated with the KKK.
The list of elected officials has been posted to the website, pastebin.com .
