Georgia Supreme Court hears KKK bid to 'Adopt-A-Highway'

- Does the Ku Klux Klan have a constitutional right to "adopt a highway"?

That question was at the center of a high-profile battle Monday before the Georgia Supreme Court, where the Klan is challenging the state's refusal to let it participate in the popular Adopt-A-Highway program. 

The hate group, with the American Civil Liberties Union by its side, is casting its bid as a free speech issue. 

“The government cannot be a censor of free speech,” Alan Berger, an attorney for the International Keystone Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, said. 

But the Georgia Department of Transportation has resisted the KKK's efforts ever since 2012 to join the program.
