Former KKK Leader To Be Released May 15
Duke spokesman Roy Armstrong said a job is required as a condition of his release from prison to a halfway house. Armstrong said when Duke asked to be allowed to work for his organization — the European-American Unity and Rights Organization, or EURO — offcials with the Federal Bureau of Prisons did not object.
Duke was transferred from a federal prison in west Texas to a halfway house in Baton Rouge on April 8. He’s due to be released May 15.
Duke, a former state representative, was sentenced to 15 months in prison and fined $10,000 for bilking his supporters and cheating on his taxes.
Armstrong said Duke has been answering phones and doing computer work for EURO as well as organizing a welcome home event for himself and a conference to take place over Memorial Day weekend.
For his work, Duke was paid $1,000, Armstrong said.
