The newly elected mayor of Marionville, Mo., announced his resignation Monday night following sympathetic remarks he made toward Frazier Glenn Cross, a white supremacist who is accused of fatally shooting three people in Kansas City.

After only six days in office, Daniel Clevenger announced at a special meeting that he would resign, as aldermen voted 4-1 to begin impeachment proceedings against him, a local NBC affiliate reported.

Mr. Clevenger said during an interview last week that he had a friendship and even shared some of the same anti-Semitic views as Mr. Cross, who is accused of gunning down three people outside a Jewish community center and a retirement complex near Kansas City on April 13.

“He was always nice and friendly and respectful of elder people, you know. He respected his elders greatly — as long as they were the same color as him,” Mr. Clevenger said with a laugh. “Very fair and honest and never had a bit of problems out of him.”

“Kind of agreed with him on some things, but I don’t like to express that too much,” he added. “There some things that are going on in this country that are destroying us. We’ve got a false economy and it’s, some of those corporations are run by Jews because the names are there.”

Mr. Clevenger also lamented what he described as the “Jew-run medical industry” and “Jew-run government backed banking industry” in a letter to the editor of the Aurora Advertiser nearly a decade ago.
