Mo. Mayor's Anti-Semitic Statements on City Agenda
MARIONVILLE (AP) - Officials in the southwest Missouri community of Marionville were expected to discuss anti-Semitic statements made by the city's mayor in support of a white supremacist accused of killing three people at Jewish community sites in Kansas.
The Springfield News-Leader reports Mayor Dan Clevenger's support of 73-year-old Frazier Glenn Cross resulted in the resignation of Alderwoman Jessica Wilson and City Attorney Paul Link. The city's Board of Aldermen was planning to discuss a resolution about his statements Monday night.
Cross is accused of fatally shooting 69-year-old William Corporon and his 14-year-old grandson, Reat Underwood, on April 13 in Overland Park, Kan., and 53-year-old Terri LaManno at a nearby Jewish retirement complex.
Clevenger told the News-Leader last week he believes Jews have played a role in hurting the American economy.
