Earlier last month the hacktivist collective “Anonymous” announced that they would release the names of members of the Ku Klux Klan and it looks like they stayed true to their word.
Today several prominent US Senators and mayors have been allegedly outed as members of the Ku Klux Klan (KKK) and other racist groups by the hacktivist collective and according to the group, more politicians and public figures will be named in the coming future.
The alleged names were posted to a document-dumping site called pastbin and include prominent Republican US Senators from North Carolina, Indiana and Texas as well as mayors of major US cities including Knoxville, Tennessee; Lexington, Kentucky; Norfolk, Virginia; Ocala, Florida; and Fort Wayne, Indiana.
According to usuncut.com:
“Thom Tillis, who is listed as a member of the United Northern and Southern Knights of the KKK in Thornton, was North Carolina’s Speaker of the House before being elected to the US Senate in 2014. Tillis was behind the implementation of numerous far-right policies in the Tar Heel State including voter ID laws, public education cuts, restrictions on abortion that were later struck down by federal judges, tax hikes on low-income earners to pay for tax cuts for the wealthy, among others.”
Even worse, the hackers are claiming that one of the most powerful members of the US Senate is affiliated with the KKK:
“John Cornyn, who Anonymous claims is affililiated with the United White Knights of the KKK, is the current Majority Whip, making him one of the most powerful members of the US Senate.”
