The mayor of the Missouri hometown of Frazier Glenn Miller said he agreed with some of the views of the White supremacist suspected of killing three people near Jewish sites outside Kansas City.

Daniel Clevenger , who was elected mayor of Marionville on Tuesday, offered his endorsement of Miller during an interview to KSPR news.

Clevenger said he “kind of agreed with him [Miller] on some things, but I don’t like to express that too much.” Miller — who also goes by the name Frazier Glenn Cross — shot three people – a boy, a man and a woman – in a shooting spree outside the Overland Park Jewish Community Center and the Village Shalom retirement community.

Witnesses said he shouted Sieg Heil after his arrest. Miller wrote anti-Semitic texts that he published online and belongs to the Ku Klux Klan.

Clevenger offered a more robust endorsement of Miller in a letter he sent to a local paper several years ago.

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

He also spoke of the “Jew-run government backed banking industry turned the United States into the world’s largest debtor nation,” KSPR News reported.
