Rogero scoffs at claims of KKK ties

So, um, there's an online video going around trying to tie Knoxville Mayor Madeline Rogero to the KKK. Also on the list is Lexington Mayor Jim Gray, who is gay. Not sure he'd be allowed in the KKK. (And I'm pretty sure the KKK wants nothing to do with Rogero.)

But whatever.

Anyhoo, a lot of folks are saying that the list came from Anonymous, but I don't think that's the case.

Anonymous has said they are going to release the names of 1,000 KKK members on Nov. 5. This isn't that list. It doesn't help, however, that Anonymous has linked to it on its Facebook page.

Anyway, here's our story RIGHT SMACK HERE.

Personally, it's sad that we have to report it, but if we didn't there would be that vocal minority claiming the "liberal media" is protecting Rogero. Yeah, whatever.

Plus Rogero, herself, got out in front of it and released a statement. It's actually pretty funny. Again, click on the link about for the story.
