The Ku Klux Klan membership letters, received recently by several Idaho legislators, may be the work of a former U.S. House candidate in Montana.
Citing the Montana Human Rights Network as its source, a Great Falls, Mont., Tribune article links the mailers to John Allen Abarr.
Abarr pulled out of the congressional race in October, writes the Tribune, "after being shunned by GOP leaders.
"The 42-year-old night auditor at a Great Falls hotel was a former KKK organizer, who told reporters in June that he believed people would back him as part of a backlash to President Barack Obama's election."
The Montana Human Rights Network says Abarr also confirmed sending KKK mailers to lawmakers in Wyoming and Montana.
