"Candidate exits race after racist writings."

A city council candidate dropped out of the race Friday after it was disclosed that he posted comments to a white supremacist Internet bulletin board more than 4,000 times.

Doug Hanks said the postings on the site were fictional and designed to win white supremacists' trust as he researched a novel he was writing.

"I needed information for the book and some other writings I was doing," Hanks said. "I did what I thought I needed to do to establish myself as a credible white nationalist."
