Pittsford Town Supervisor Bill Smith has reportedly sent a letter to New York State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman’s office, seeking an investigation into the origins of a racist website that has recently been soliciting donations in the area.
An unknown individual began distributing fliers, titled “Make America Great Again,” in residents’ driveways in September, directing them to the racist website “WhiteNewYork.org.”
“The white supremacist group recently made its website more elaborate than it appeared originally,” Smith stated in the letter. “It now includes a mechanism by which people may donate money to the group. We are aware that there may be registration or licensing provisions under state law that apply to organizations soliciting donations.”
Smith asked Schneiderman for advice on his, and the town board’s behalf.
“It has no place in our town, nor anywhere in our state or nation,” Smith stated.
