Fired Ferguson clerk fired over emails says she’s not racist

Ferguson, MO ( KTRS ) – Ferguson’s former municipal court clerk who was fired last month over racially charged emails linked to her says she’s not a bigot and that she shared the messages as funny items she didn’t consider offensive.

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.

The scrutiny followed uproar over August’s shooting death of black 18-year-old Michael Brown by a white police officer.

Ferguson Mayor James Knowles III declined to discuss Twitty’s firing, saying it’s a personnel matter.
