A group of citizens, many of whom backed Clevenger's opponent in the recent mayoral election, are calling for Clevenger's ouster.For his part, the mayor wants to make it clear that he no longer considers Cross a friend and he doesn't hate all Jewish people. Just the ones destroying the country:
Debbie Sallee said, "We plan to go to the city council or board of alderman and ask for his resignation, and we will be asking, if he doesn't resign, for the Marionville City Council to begin impeachment because we feel he has failed to do what is in the best interest of the citizens of Marionville. No matter what his personal beliefs are, he portrayed those on his interview as the mayor of Marionville, and we are getting feedback from the community and the nation that if we elect a man like that to be our mayor of our city, that we must be like that, too, and that is very important people know that is not our city."
"I don't stereotype. Just because some people like running those corporations that are destroying us, that doesn't mean that the rest of the race or religion or whatever is bad. I don't stereotype," Clevenger stated.
