By Kevin Lavery, KWMU

St. Louis, MO – Moore is angered by what she perceives as Mayor Slay's interference in the operation of the St. Louis Public Schools. Her letter paraphrases biblical passages, saying "the Lord shall send upon Francis Slay and anyone who helps him cursing, vexation and rebuke until thou be destroyed, and until thou perish quickly." Slay's office issued the following written statement:

"This is a very sad situation for Ms. Moore and the children she is supposed to represent. It is evident that she needs professional help. The sooner she seeks it, the better it will be for the kids, the district and especially for Ms. Moore herself."

Slay spokesman Ed Rhode says the mayor does not intend to take legal action against Moore
