Activist group Anonymous has been threatening the release of a secret list of Ku Klux Klan members who were connected among varying sectors of society. After a list that was incorrectly credited to Anonymous leaked earlier this week, the group’s official list was released on Thursday.

The #OpKKK #HoodsOff reveal came by way of the group’s Twitter account Thursday afternoon. As reported by Raw Story, some of the names of elected officials listed in the earlier leaked list were not on this current list.

From Raw Story:

The document, uploaded on Pastebin, contains hundreds of names and aliases. Among them is Frazier Glenn Miller, the white supremacist who killed three people at a Jewish community center in Kansas City.

The release came three days after the group was mistakenly credited with posting a separate list containing the names of several current lawmakers, like Sens. Dan Coats (R-IN), John Cornyn (R-TX), John Hardy Isakson (R-GA), and Thom Tillis (R-NC). None of them were named in the document posted on Thursday.

Similarly, none of the mayors identified in the prior release from a non-Anonymous Twitter account — Paul Fraim of Norfolk, Virginia; Jim Gray of Lexington, Kentucky; Kent Guinn of Ocala, Florida; Tom Henry of Fort Wayne, Indiana; and Madeline Rogero of Knoxville, Tennessee — appeared in Thursday’s document, which can be seen below.

For those keeping score, Anonymous removed some names from the list after its earlier publishing for further investigation according to a Thursday afternoon tweet.
