Missouri Democrats are taking steps to minimize the influence of Missouri state senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal after she called for the assassination of President Trump.
KSDK in St.Louis reported the latest move by Democrats against Chappelle-Nadal:
“A Missouri state senator has been removed from all committee assignments after posting on Facebook that she hopes President Trump will be assassinated.
Tuesday morning, Senate Democratic Caucus leader Sen. Gina Walsh said Maria Chappelle-Nadal is a ‘distraction’ to senators and released a statement saying she has been removed from all committees.
‘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,’ she said.
Previously, Chappelle-Nadal was a member of eight committees: veterans and military affairs; public assistance; seniors, families and children; judiciary and civil and criminal jurisprudence; government accountability; education; health and pensions; and public employee retirement.”
Chappelle-Nadal backpedaled and issued an apology after she said she wouldn’t apologize.
Missouri State Senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal made a public statement Sunday after Thursday’s Trump assassination Facebook comment. She says that she made a mistake.
‘President Trump, I apologize to you and your family. I also apologize to all of the people in Missouri. I also apologize to my colleagues in the Missouri legislature for the mistake that I made. I will continue to fight for issues that are really, really important to me,’ said Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal.”
Even Democrats aren’t happy with Chappelle-Nadal.
For Democrats, her apologies are too little, too late.
