The Ku Klux Klan could soon be getting its own highway sign paid for by the government — and it's all thanks to a clerical error.

You've probably seen those Adopt-a-Highway signs, where a group cleans a stretch of roadway in exchange for a sign on both sides of the highway. In 2012, the Georgia Department of Transportation denied the white supremacist group's request to sponsor a stretch of road near the North Carolina border.
