A couple of weeks ago, the (very loose) hacking collective Anonymous claimed to have learned the identities of 1,000 Ku Klux Klan members and vowed to make them public. On Monday, they got started by posting the names of nine “officials that have political power in the usa that are associated with either kkk or racist related,” including four United States senators and nine mayors. (Right now is a good time to note that anything Anonymous says should be taken with a grain of salt, which is definitely not to say that a number of American politicians haven’t been in the KKK.)
Anonymous’s post signed off with a “#YouMadBro,” and it seems that the answer is yes:
No doubt Lahoma, Oklahoma, mayor Theresa Sharp, whose husband celebrated Halloween by donning a white robe and hood and possibly burning a cross, is grateful for the distraction.
