Leaders of the Ku Klux Klan and pro-Nazi groups state that they will support John McCain in the presidential election.
Several leaders of the Ku Klux Klan and pro-Nazi groups (some of whom are members of both groups) have stated that they will support John McCain in the presidential election. None of the leaders wanted their names disclosed, but they agreed to discuss which candidate they would support on the condition of anonymity.

At least three Ku Klux Klan leaders represented major chapters with headquarters in Alabama, Mississppi and South Carolina. Two of the Klan officials admitted that they were also significantly involved with pro-Nazi groups.

Klan and Nazi representatives said that their Chapters and members are in overwhelming support of John McCain. "Actually, it's a unanimous sentiment within our organization," said one of the pro-Nazi leaders. "McCain is the only candidate who represents our interests," he added.

While it is not clear yet whether Senator McCain would want the publicized support of either the Klan or the Nazi groups, the votes will undoubtedly help him, particularly in the South.

The revelation that Senator McCain has the blessing of the two groups comes on the heels of the McCain campaign's recent statement that Hamas would probably prefer Senator Obama. With the news of these event, one Obama supporter commented, "Well, I guess the difference is that Hamas can't vote, but McCain will sure get all those Nazi votes."
