Mayor of Missouri town resigns following controversial remarks about white supremacist ‘friend’

The mayor of the Missouri small town which shot to infamy last week as the home of accused triple-murderer and white supremacist Glenn Miller said Monday night that he would step down amid a growing uproar over his own history of anti-Semitic comments.

Dan Clevenger, the recently-elected mayor of Marionville, Missouri announced at a special meeting that he would resign as aldermen voted 4-1 to begin impeachment proceedings against him.

In the days after Miller and Marionville sprung into the national consciousness, the Springfield News Leader discovered an op-ed written by Clevenger a decade ago in which he defends the white supremacist views of Miller and calls him a friend.

“I am a friend of Frazier Miller helping to spread his warnings,” Clevenger wrote, according to the News Leader. “The Jew-run medical industry has succeeded in destroying the United State’s workforce.”

In a subsequent interview with the paper, Clevenger said he was no longer friends with Miller and that he was not an anti-Semite, but then proceeded to make further remarks about his belief that Jewish people had hurt the US economy.
