Leaflets From K.K.K. Supporter

A self-proclaimed Ku Klux Klan grand wizard from Hampton Bays was found distributing leaflets in East Hampton Village last week, according to police.

At a little after 9 p.m. on June 13, a customer at Citarella came out of the store to find a paper flier attributed to “the Loyal White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan” on his vehicle’s windshield.

According to a police report, the leaflet contained advice about drug and alcohol abuse.

East Hampton Village Police Chief Michael Tracey said that Douglas G. Munker, 35, who does not have a driver’s license, had been dropped off in the village and that he placed the leaflets on windshields on Main Street and Fithian Lane. Leafleting is prohibited by the village code.

Officers found similar material on vehicles on Newtown Lane, where they found Mr. Munker walking near the Middle School with more of the leaflets in his possession.

Police issued a warning to Mr. Munker that he was violating village law. They said he agreed to remove all of the leaflets he had placed on the windshields.

The next day, police found four of the leaflets attached to trees on Newtown Lane, according to a subsequent police report.
