Fliers with racist and anti-Semitic messages and advertising a website of the Ku Klux Klan were found in Northern Virginia communities over the weekend leading up to Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
Beginning Friday at 10 p.m., the Leesburg Police Department received a dozen reports of the fliers, weighed down with hard candy to prevent them flying away. There were also reports in other areas of Loudoun County, said Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson Alex Kowalski.
“Unfortunately, they can throw these fliers,” Kowalski said. “There’s nothing illegal about that.”
