The KKK cash behind Griffin

NAZI BRITISH National Party (BNP) leader Nick Griffin could face prison for illegally accepting donations from racists in the US for party funds. The Nazi toff who pretends to be a man of the people had to rely on big donations from wealthy US racists to fund the BNP's election campaign, showing he is in hock to the rich.

The Electoral Commission is investigating if the BNP broke the law in raising more than �180,000 in the US for the general election campaign. Griffin did a tour of Nazi and racist organisations in the US earlier this year begging for cash. The meetings were organised by Mark Cotterill, a British Nazi living in the US. Organisations such as the Ku Klux Klan and white supremacist groups attended the fundraisers.
