The new mayor of the Missouri hometown of Frazier Glenn Miller said he agreed with some of the views of the suspected killer of three people at Jewish sites in suburban Kansas City, Kan.

Daniel Clevenger, who was elected mayor of Marionville on Tuesday, offered his endorsement of Miller, a white supremacist, during an interview with 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 a man and his 14-year-old grandson outside the Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City in Overland Park and a woman outside the nearby Village Shalom retirement community. Video showed Miller yelling “heil Hitler” following his arrest. Miller wrote and published anti-Semitic texts online and was a Ku Klux Klan leader.

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 to the the Aurora Advertiser. “The Jew-run medical industry has succeeded in destroying the United State’s workforce.”

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