Missouri Senator Who Hoped for Trump's Assassination Will Keep Her Seat

Share

Maria Chappelle-Nadal (D.) has been censured by the state government after she posted in the wake of the Charlottesville, Va. violence, "I hope Trump is Assassinated!" on Facebook.

State senators, in Jefferson City for a special legislative session, could not reach the required two-thirds vote to expel Chappelle-Nadal.

The senate gave Sen.

The Daily Mail reports that the Republican-led Missouri Senate voted 28-2 to formally censure the lawmaker and also called for Nadal to resign. In a statement, Parson said he was super-bummed that he'd been unable to leave Chappelle-Nadal's district without representation: Obviously, we are frustrated with some members of the Missouri Senate's decision to let Senator Maria Chappelle Nadal retain her seat.

Senators Kiki Curls (D - Kansas City) and Jamilah Nasheed (D - St. Louis) voted against the censure.

Because senators could only discuss the governor's vetoes at the session, it could not remove Sen. In a resolution, they again called for her to resign and warned that she still could be kicked out later.

Meanwhile, Germany returned to the summit of world ranking, continuing this year's on going tug of war with Brazil for top spot. Just under 40,000 tickets were requested for the tournament's opening match, which will also be held at Luzhniki.

The second-term senator adamantly resisted initial calls for her resignation, though she conceded she should have never published the post. She responded that there are still those in her district who want her to continue serving.

"I made a mistake, and I'm owning up to it", Chappelle-Nadal said during a press conference. I am very disappointed in the outcome of today's proceedings.

Chappelle-Nadal apologized that Sunday, saying she made a mistake.

"It's about a comment about the President of the United States", Richard said. However, I have made it clear that I will not resign.

The Missouri House of Representatives briefly took up the issue of a representative making a controversial Facebook comment. However, efforts to deal with Chappelle-Nadal's Facebook comment, which was quickly deleted, had lost a bit of steam after a Republican lawmaker, state Representative Warren Love (R-Osceola) called on Facebook for vandals who defaced a Confederate statue in Springfield to "be hung from a tall tree with a long rope".
