The mayor of the Missouri hometown of Frazier Glenn Miller resigned after saying he agreed with some views of the suspected killer of three people at Jewish sites in suburban Kansas City, Kansas.
Marionville Mayor Dan Clevenger offered his resignation at a special Board of Aldermen meeting on Monday night; the resignation was effective at 8 a.m. on Tuesday.
The aldermen had voted 4-1 to start impeachment proceedings against the mayor.
Residents who attended the meeting overwhelmingly called for his resignation or impeachment.
Clevenger, who was elected earlier this month, said he “kind of agreed with him [Miller] on some things, but I don’t like to express that too much…”
