Georgia Sheriff Says KKK Outfit Was a “Halloween Costume”
CHEROKEE COUNTY, Ga. — Cherokee County Sheriff Roger Garrison said he has no affiliation with the Ku Klux Klan, despite old photos that surfaced showing him wearing a robe and hood.
He wore the costume to a Halloween party around 25 years ago, long before he took office.
“I don’t deny it wasn’t stupid, looking back now, but there again I say what 21- or 22-year-old in this world hasn’t made some stupid mistakes?” Garrison told Channel 2 investigative reporter Jodie Fleischer, who obtained the photos from a source who wished to remain anonymous.
Check out the photo:
Someone put an awful lot of effort into putting these “costumes” together if indeed they were for Halloween, which I don’t believe for a minute. I mean, it’s not like they’re sheets with a hole torn in them for the neck opening. They have sleeves, what looks like a nice turned-in “hem” around the neck and those hoods. Those hoods weren’t slapped together either.
