In 1947 KKK-infiltrator Stetson Kennedy (1916 2011) wished to harness the power of government in order to parody, rather than eliminate the KKK:

"Stetson Kennedy, author of the KKK-exposing books Southern Exposure and Imperial Wizard asked for an Illinois state charter to set up a mock KKK group that would have as officers 'a Negro, a Jew, a Roman Catholic and an American Indian.'"

Illinois Secretary of State Edward Barrett denied Kennedy's application but his harsh criticism regarding the Klan's loathsome history was read into the records of the state legislator.
