A white supremacist in northern Idaho wants to be the next Bonner County sheriff, saying federal overreach motivated him to run for the office.
Shaun Winkler of the White Knights of the KKK will go up against incumbent Sheriff Daryl Wheeler and Ponderay police officer Tim Fry in the Republican primary on May 15. The winner of that contest will face independent candidate Rocky Jordan in November.
The Bonner County Daily Bee reports ( http://bit.ly/FPTrDP) Winkler has ties to the Aryan Nations and Church of Jesus Christ-Christian and acknowledges his personal beliefs could cast a pall over his campaign.
But the 33-year-old says he's not running to push a white supremacist agenda.
The Aryan Nations is long gone from northern Idaho, but its reputation has lingered to the embarrassment of locals.
