Lake Wales, Florida - A mayoral candidate in Lakes Wales is speaking out about his involvement with the Klan.
70-year-old John Paul Rogers wants to become the next mayor of Lake Wales, but critics say he could have a tough time bringing the town together because he's a former member of Ku Klux Klan.
Rogers, who is currently a commissioner, spoke with 10 News Tuesday afternoon and says, "I'm not running for the Klan for Grand Dragon." That's because Rogers has already had that title.

Though party affiliation is not a factor in the race Rogers and Carter are both Democrats.
Didn’t seem to hurt Senator Robert “Sheets” Byrd.
“They wait until the absolute LAST paragraph to drop this line...
Though party affiliation is not a factor in the race Rogers and Carter are both Democrats.”
Yes, that’s exactly right. I was hunting and hunting for his party affiliation, as Lake Wales is very well known to me, but finally found it in the last paragraph. Typical Democrat.
Yup...I looked as well....missed it...
Nor did it hurt David Duke.
With a history like his he shouldn’t be elected as dog catcher. When every old Klan scum ball passes away America the air in America will be cleaner.
Most liberals actually think that the KKK was affiliated with the Republican party. I sent one to do some research ... and he’s been very quiet lately.
I agree. My point was that if he was a registered Republican, you can bet that would have led the story and probably would have been in the headline.
You got that right. KKK and skinheads are lifes losers who blames blacks and Jews because they lost their job as a Walmart Greeter.
was not trying to imply anything. I am just saying, don’t you hate that saying. My kids? now 22 and 24 have always had friends of all ilks, Winners and losers sure as hell were not defined by skin color.If there is any issue it is with me hating the younger folk, prolly cause I’m jealous. What’s the saying.....youth is wasted on the young.
