KKK Applications Asking for Blood Type, Lineage Handed Out in Indiana 

So we know this country is still dealing with race issues and there are hate groups that are growing and being created but one of the oldest white supremacy groups in this country is the KKK and in Indiana they are looking to add to their numbers.

The KKK’s recruitment efforts included placing flyers in peoples driveways which were reported to have come from the Church of the National Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, claiming to be religious materials even though they had application forms attached and were clearly seeking new KKK members.  The forms asked those wanting to join for their blood type, race, and home address, as well as confirmation that they are white, not Jewish, and that they support the segregation of races.

The letter that came with the KKK application stated its intentions are not to “threaten anyone.”

Election Issues With New York Mayoral Election

As the race for New York’s’ next mayor is on the line and its close but then maybe not after election officials admitted they accidentally included “test” results in the vote count, resulting in 135,000 extra ballots.

The board of elections clarified their screw-up in a tweet last night. Saying “It has been determined that ballot images used for testing were not cleared from the Election Management System (EMS),”

“When the cast votes were extracted for the first pull of RCV {ranked choice voting} results, it included both test and election night results, producing approximately 135,000 additional records,”

A total of 219,944 ballots “with no choices left” were listed as “inactive.” But the city still has yet to count more than 124,000 absentee ballots sent by mail.
