BLAIRSVILLE – (WAOK/AJC) – The American Civil Liberties Union has taken up the cause of a chapter of the Ku Klux Klan,  which applied to adopt a portion of a north Georgia highway.  The ACLU says the group has the right to the first amendmant, and should be able to express that.   Several weeks ago,   the Georgia Department of Transportation denied a request from the International Keystone Knights of the KKK,   that had sent in a request to clean up a portion of highway 315 in Union County.  In it’s denial to the KKK,  the DOT said the highway cleanup program was open only to civie minded organizations in good standing.    The Klan has a history of violence against blacks and other minority groups.
