Atlanta Journal Constitution: Racist hate flyer threatens Obama

Racist hate flyer threatens Obama

Federal authorities are investigating an inflammatory racist flyer containing a threat against Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama that was circulated in mailboxes of a suburban Atlanta subdivision.

An FBI spokesman said Friday that investigators “reported the matter to the U.S. Secret Service for further review and determination on handling.”

The Secret Service did not immediately return a call.

The flyer purportedly from “some of us KKK brothers,” which surfaced this week in Clayton County south of Atlanta, contained derogatory references to blacks, Asians and homosexuals. It said if Obama won the election “we may have to get rid” of him and “in fact we will.”
