The Ku Klux Klan can forget about adopting a highway in north Georgia’s Union County.
The Georgia Department of Transportation has rejected an Adopt-A-Highway application by the KKK to adopt part of Route 515 near the North Carolina border. The application was filed by the Klan’s International Keystone Knights on May 21.
GDOT Commissioner Keith Golden told Fox 5 Atlanta that the impact of erecting a sign naming an organization which has a long, well-documented history of civil disturbance would cause a significant public concern.
The Klan’s secretary previously said that the group would seek the help of the ACLU should the application be turned down.
