Missouri state senator who hoped for Donald Trump's assassination must resign

Posted August 23, 2017

But Senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal, a black Democrat, said she has no plans to resign as some Republicans and Democrats in Missouri have insisted since Thursday's post in which she wrote: "I hope Trump is assassinated!".

Democratic state Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal is now in hot water after a comment she made on Facebook. Maria Chappelle-Nadal has been removed from her committee assignments.

Both sides of the aisle have called for the Democratic Senator to relinquish her seat. Claire McCaskill called for her to resign for making these irresponsible and objectionable comments.

Also on Tuesday, Walsh, in a statement, said Chappelle-Nadal will no longer serve on committees if she hangs on to her post.

"We saw violence a week and a half ago in Charlottesville in which someone actually died because of violent speech and violent behavior on the part of the neo-Nazis who support Donald Trump", she noted.

"He incited it along the way", she added, "and again, he's not some random state senator, he is the most important and powerful person in the United States setting a awful and appalling tone for the rest of the country".

Chappelle-Nadal's assassination remark was met with immediate condemnation from both political parties. During Sunday's apology, she claimed that she was admitting her mistake in posting such a message on her Facebook account, but that her judge and jury would be Jesus Christ and no one else.

Plenty of Missouri Democrats have expressed outrage at Trump's reaction.

"I am not, ever, going to make a mistake like that again and I have learned my lesson", she said. "But I am not going to shy away from what caused that anger at all, I'm not going to shy away from that".

On Sunday she apologized to President Trump.

Not everyone is behind the effort to oust Chappelle-Nadal.

"So, Ms. Chappelle-Nadal, please do us a favor".

"I will continue to fight for issues that are really important", she said. "It's outrageous. And she should resign". That politician would have been forced to resign immediately and it would be on the 24-hour news cycle for days on end.
