Missouri State Senator, former Occupier and Ferguson instigator, Maria Chappelle-Nadal said in a recent Facebook post that she hoped someone would kill Donald Trump. Specifically, she wrote, “I hope Trump is assassinated.” She quickly deleted the comment but admitted she did write it.
The Secret Service did meet with her.
For four days, she refused to apologize.
After the Missouri Governor, Lt. Governor, and the Chairman of the Missouri Democratic Party called for her to resign, she gave a rehearsed apology while quoting bible verses.
She hasn’t resigned yet but she has been removed from her committee assignments, according to kmov.
Senate Democratic Caucus leader Sen. Gina Walsh issued the following statement regarding Chappelle-Nadal’s committee assignment removal Tuesday:
“It is important that the Missouri Senate conducts their work without distractions. With that in mind, Sen. Chappelle-Nadal has been removed from her committee assignments. This will help to ensure the success of the Senate, and the state, going forward.”
Sen. Walsh acted after the Lt. Gov. sent a letter calling for Chappelle-Nadal’s resignation.
Lt. Gov. Mike Parson in a letter sent Tuesday to Senate Majority Leader Mike Kehoe and copied to Senate President Ron Richard and Senate Minority Leader Gina Walsh, Parson said Chappelle-Nadal’s comments were “unacceptable and unbefitting conduct of a Missouri State Senator.”
“I am calling on you to exercise your authority as Majority Floor Leader to begin the process for calling a special session, with the purpose of expelling Senator Chappelle-Nadal from the Missouri Senate,” the letter reads.
Article III, Section 18 of the state constitution says the Senate may expel one of its members upon a two-thirds vote. Both Kehoe and Richard have said Chappelle-Nadal should resign or they will work to expel her from the Senate.
After receiving the letter, Walsh released a statement saying she was removing Chappelle-Nadal from all the legislative committees she was serving on.
Nadal has refused to resign. She does have quasi-supporters who don’t think anyone should have to resign over a mistake on social media.
Maybe she should resign for being a racist. She is always playing the race card and doesn’t seem to like white people or America much.
