An FBI informant working undercover inside a Florida chapter of the Ku Klux Klan exposed a troubling connection between the white supremacist organization’s members and local law enforcement agencies.
For ten years, Joe Moore worked as a confidential informant in the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force, as a key component of the agency’s investigation into the KKK. The married father of three gathered information on the KKK in Jacksonville, Florida from 2007 to 2017, where he helped foil at least two murder plots and exposed active members working inside law enforcement at the county and state levels.
Moore is speaking out now because he says his life –– and his family’s lives –– are under threat by the very people he helped take down.
“We live in a constant state of danger,” Moore told The Associated Press, adding that he’s speaking out “before something does happen to me.”
