David Duke began stealing and selling white nationalist mailing lists to make money on the side in 1970, when he instructed Don Black to infiltrate the gubernatorial campaign of JB Stoner and steal that list.
Stole the National Youth Alliance mailing list from William Pierce in 1972. False claimed to have authored Pierce's "Who Runs The Media?" pamphlet.
Stole $500 from the Wallace for President campaign in 1972. Was arrested, but charges were later dropped.
Jack Gregory, former Florida leader for Duke's Klan, accused him of stealing Klan money in 1979. There is no question he used Klan money to run for office in 1975, but Gregory's accusations go further:
"Our members were pouring in money to the organization, and we never saw any of it. When I asked Duke where our money was going, I was thrown out of the Klan, he tells everyone he doesn't make anything from the Klan ý that he's doing it for the cause. But that's the biggest lie there is."
Duke used Klan money to purchase a home in Metarie, Lousiana, and refurbish it, according to Jerry Dutton, another Duke Klan official.
