Charlottesville mayor wants special session to remove Confederate statue

Charlottesville Mayor Mike Signer said in a statement that whether the monuments go to museums, cemeteries or elsewhere, "it is clear that they no longer can be celebrated in shared civic areas, like Charlottesville's Downtown Mall."
