Ferguson clerk fired over racist emails hired by nearby city

VINITA PARK, Mo. (AP) — A white Ferguson court clerk who was fired over racist emails uncovered by the U.S. Justice Department after a police officer killed 18-year-old Michael Brown has a new job with another St. Louis-area court.

Vinita Park Mayor James McGee told The Associated Press on Friday that Mary Ann Twitty was hired last month as a temporary, part-time court clerk in that 1,900-resident city.

The Justice Department cited the questioned emails involving Twitty and two Ferguson police officers in a scathing March report criticizing Ferguson’s police and court operations.

That scrutiny came after Brown, who was black and unarmed, was shot by a white Ferguson officer last year.

McGee, who is black, says he was aware of reasons behind Twitty’s firing in Ferguson but believes she deserved a second chance.
