The Missouri mayor who spoke kindly of the white supremacist who allegedly went on a deadly shooting rampage at Jewish centers announced his resignation Monday night, the Springfield News-Leader reported.

Daniel Clevenger resigned as mayor of Marionville, Mo. at a town meeting after residents called for his impeachment over comments he made in support of Frazier Glenn Miller, the man accused of killing three people at Jewish facilities in Overland Park, Kan.
