    (AP) — The American Civil Liberties Union will help the Ku Klux Klan in its bid to join Georgia’s highway cleanup program as a legal fight looms.
    ACLU of Georgia Executive Director Debbie Seagraves told a local newspaper The that the civil rights group will assist the Klan in its battle with the state.
    The International Keystone Knights of the KKK applied to join the “Adopt-A-Highway” program along part of Route 515 in the north Georgia mountains. Participating groups are recognized with a sign along the road they adopt.
    State officials announced last month they would deny the KKK group’s application, setting up the legal showdown.
    Seagraves says the ACLU is still working on its strategy for representing the group in what it considers a First Amendment case.
