Ferguson’s Municipal Court Clerk Defends Self
ST. LOUIS (AP) — Ferguson's former municipal court clerk who was fired last month over racially charged emails linked to her tells the Associated Press she's not a bigot. The St. Louis suburb fired Mary Ann Twitty after the Justice Department called the emails into question in its report that found widespread racial bias in Ferguson's policing efforts and the municipal court system. The emails frequently belittled black residents and President Barack Obama. Ferguson Mayor James Knowles the Third yesterday declined to discuss Twitty's firing.
