GOP group apologizes for mistakenly posting KKK image | app

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — A Republican group in Alabama is apologizing after accidentally using a GOP elephant photo that contained Ku Klux Klan imagery.

The Lawrence County Republican Party intended to post an image of the GOP elephant on its Facebook page, but ended up using one in which the white spaces between the animal’s legs were drawn to look like hooded Klansmen.
