Rapid City Council Member Criticized Again



Bookmark and Share

A Rapid City Council member accused of making racist comments to a black TV reporter last fall is being criticized again, this time for allegedly confronting a black man at a recent debate of mayoral candidates.

 

Councilman Bill Clayton discounts the latest accusation as a political attack.

 

Opponents of Clayton are circulating recall petitions in the wake of the incident last August in which he allegedly suggested the TV reporter be deported to Kenya during a telephone interview. Clayton said he was not aware of the reporter's race and publicly apologized for the controversy.

 

Witnesses say that Clayton had a heated discussion last Thursday with Dennis Edwards, a black man who has been critical of Clayton and has called for him to resign.
