Missouri State Senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal hoped for the assassination of President Trump in a Facebook comment last Thursday. She then deleted it in a panic.
She even acknowledged she would get a visit from the Secret Service when she posted her comment.

Maria Chappelle-Nadal’s Facebook comment was so egregious that even ABC News reported on the story.
Then on Thursday Chappelle-Nadal tweeted out a Holocaust threat to Jewish Missouri Governor Eric Greitens.
On Friday Missouri Lt. Governor Mike Parsons told Senator Chappelle-Nadal to step down or be removed from office.
Even the Missouri Democrats are turning on her.
On Wednesday Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal was removed from her committee assignments.
Missouri Lt. Governor Mike Parsons sent a letter out on Tuesday urging senators to reconvene and oust unhinged Democratic Senator Chappelle-Nadal from office.
The backlash continues for Democratic Senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal from a posted comment on Facebook last week that expressed hope that President Donald Trump would be assassinated.
Republican Lt. Gov. Mike Parson sent a letter to senators Tuesday urging Chappelle-Nadal be expelled. “I am calling on the Missouri Senate to go into special session in conjunction with Veto Session, with the purpose of expelling Senator Chappelle-Nadal from the body under the authority vested to the Senate under Article III, Section 18 of the Missouri Constitution.”
Chappelle-Nadal offered a personal apology to the president and his family on Sunday but has resisted calls to resign. Missouri U.S. Sen. Claire McCaskill, Congressman Lacy Clay and the Missouri Democratic Party have called for her resignation.
Sen. Paul Wieland of Jefferson County and Sen. Dave Schatz of Franklin County, both Republicans, told News 4 if Chappelle-Nadal doesn’t step down, the senate should step in and remove her from office.
Parson’s request for a special session came hours after Republican and Democratic state Senate leaders removed Chappelle-Nadal from all of her legislative committee assignments.
