What I mean when I say both is I don’t know the answer,” Weaver told the paper, according to the Sacramento Bee, which reported the incident on Tuesday. The student representative, who receives an $8,500 annual stipend for his role, also alleged that a share of the six million Jewish victims of the Holocaust were actually killed in prior acts of religious persecution, according to the Bee.”)
