(OZARKSFIRST) — MARIONVILLE, Mo. -- Less than a week after taking office, the newly elected Marionville mayor is caught up in a controversy about his beliefs.
These beliefs went unnoticed beyond the local community, until attention was drawn to Marionville after the Jewish center shootings last weekend near Kansas City.
The disagreement about some of the beliefs then-candidate Dan Clevenger espoused about the Jewish faith started before the election. Now, Clevenger's past association with Frazier Glenn Cross, better known as Glenn Miller, and comments he continues to make are pulling him deeper into hot water. Clevenger also feels he is not being portrayed accurately by the media.

A group of citizens, many of whom backed Clevenger's opponent in the recent mayoral election, are calling for Clevenger's ouster.
