SANPOINT, Idaho (AP) — Police in Sandpoint, Idaho, believe they have identified a man responsible for racist propaganda that has been distributed across the city.

Police believe Scott D. Rhodes is responsible for the flyers and other racist propaganda.

The Spokesman-Review reports that police in Alexandria, Virginia, asked Sandpoint police for help after Alexandria city leaders began receiving anti-Semitic phone calls last fall.

Investigators determined that one of those calls was a recording of Adolf Hitler and traced the phone number to Rhodes.

Rhodes told the newspaper that he has been targeted by local media and "extreme leftists" because of his opposition to refugee settlement in North Idaho.

Much of the material targeted Sandpoint Mayor Shelby Rognstad, along with Muslims, African Americans, local journalists and members of the Bonner County Human Rights Task Force.
