(BOISE) – A Idaho lawmaker received a membership application from the Ku Klux Klan but the group is denying it sent the mailing. Rep. Cherie Buckner-Webb of Boise is the state’s only black lawmaker. She was among legislators who this week received a mailing from the Knights of the KKK. The Associated Press reports that the Idaho Attorney General’s office has informed law enforcement and is monitoring the issue. Buckner-Webb said she believes she was specifically targeted but says that won’t stop her from fighting against prejudice.
