Ku Klux Klan Publications Show Up In Monroe In Southern Wisconsin

Ku Klux Klan publications appeared in several newspaper boxes this week in Monroe in Green County.

It's prompted complaints to The Monroe Times newspaper -- and the police.

Monroe Police Chief Fred Kelley says there isn't anything the police can do about people putting literature in newspaper boxes outside homes.

It's illegal to put anything other than mail in US government controlled mailboxes, but there's no law protecting homeowners' newspaper boxes.

Kelley also says just because it's annoying, doesn't mean the literature isn't protected by the Constitution.

Authorities plan to contact the name and number on the information to tell him about the complaints.

Kelley says there has been no reports of Klan activity in the area.
