The newspaper The Hill reports that the mayor of Ferguson, James Knowles III, charged on Sunday that violent protesters in his community are arriving from out of town and getting paid. It’s not what you would call “grass roots” unrest.
“They’ve been openly raising money and distributing money for some time,” Knowles told radio host John Catsimatidis on “The Cats Roundtable” on AM 970 in New York. “The mainstream media continues mostly to ignore this fact,” he added. “It’s unbelievable what we’ve seen.”
