The Ku Klux Klan was in Flushing, Ohio on Monday, leaving flyers on residents' porches.
"People were going around picking them up because they were disturbed. I received a few unpleasant telephone calls from my neighbors so," Mattox said. "If I have the opportunity to let individuals know what type of citizens we have in Flushing, we recognize that they have a right, but that is not something that we entertain in Flushing, Ohio."
Mattox said the Constitution guarantees every citizen freedom of expression. In the end, he quoted Martin Luther King, saying, "We will hang on to love, because hate is too heavy a burden." He said Flushing residents do not have a hate mentality.
