Marionville, Mo., Mayor Dan Clevenger is mayor no more. Clevenger resigned Monday, one week after he voiced support for Frazier Glenn Miller, the man who allegedly murdered three people at Kansas Jewish centers earlier this month.
After the shooting, Clevenger told a local news station he "kind of agreed with [Miller] on some things," adding "but I don't like to express that too much." Unfortunately for him, he did express that too much. Following his admission, reporters dug up some of Clevenger's past warnings about the "Jew-run, government-backed banking industry," the "Jew-run medical industry," and so on. When confronted, Clevenger doubled down on his anti-Semitic musings.
The town's aldermen voted during a raucous public meeting on Monday to begin impeachment proceedings, prompting Clevenger to jump ship. Clevenger previously said he would not resign, and when asked why he changed his mind, "he silently motioned to the residents who had come to the meeting," according to the Springfield News-Leader.
