Missouri state senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal came under fire last August for openly calling for Trump’s assassination. You would think something like that would have ended her political career but she’s still around.
Now she’s calling for slavery reparations.

Missouri senator calls for reparations for slavery, criticizes McCaskill, Democrats
Concerned about the plight of black people in her Missouri district, a Democratic state senator on Tuesday called for reparations for former slaves and criticized her own party for taking African-American votes for granted.
Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal, D-University City, criticized white Democrats, such as U.S. Sen. Claire McCaskill, saying there’s “no difference” between them and Republicans. Both parties, she said, have failed black people.
“Neither one of them give a heck about the black community, only the votes,” Chappelle-Nadal said.
Speaking on the Senate floor during a debate on a tax bill, Chappelle-Nadal said she was motivated by the calls and emails she receives about her constituents’ needs.
“When I’m getting a single mother of three children calling me trying to find a place to live because they don’t have a place to live, that’s what’s on my mind today and every single day,” Chappelle-Nadal said.
This woman shouldn’t even be in office anymore. She is not helping her poor constituents by demanding reparations. She should be working with community leaders to find new solutions and opportunities.
