Despite Farnsworth's claims that the Klan support would elect politicians and Klan policies would become public policy, the Klan was not politically successful in Maine.

Brewster, elected in 1924, denied he was a Klan member, but expressed support for the organization. He was the only Maine politician associated with the Klan to be elected in the state.
