ELLENSBURG, Wash. - Police say Ku Klux Klan fliers have been found on lawns and driveways in the central Washington city of Ellensburg.
The Yakima Herald-Republic reports three residents reported finding the leaflets last week. Police say the fliers were left in rock-filled bags that appeared to be thrown on to resident's lawns and driveways at random.
It's unclear how many were distributed.
The flier covered topics from a desire to maintain America as a nation governed by whites to opposition to abortion and support for state sovereignty.
A message left by the newspaper at a listed "Klan hotline" wasn't immediately returned, and a related website was not operational.
On Facebook, Ellensburg police said while the flier's content is objectionable, it is not illegal.
