Kansas City Star: 'Trump Assassination' Politician Must Resign Now

Kansas City Star: 'Trump Assassination' Politician Must Resign Now

Tuesday, 22 August 2017 11:22 AM

Missouri State Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal must step down immediately for expressing hope that President Donald Trump would be assassinated, The Kansas City Star says in an editorial published Monday.

"That is crossing a big, bright line, especially for a public official as experienced as Chappelle-Nadal. The veteran lawmaker, 42, knows better. It matters not that she promptly deleted the post, knowing full well that she had done wrong," the newspaper's editorial board writes.

"And it matters not that on Sunday she expressed her regret directly to the Trumps … This issue won't drift away. It's too simple to grasp — and the sentiment too vile …

"It's reprehensible. It's an embarrassment to the entire state and a message that has no place in American discourse today. Senator, you've got to go. At this point, it's the least you can do."

During an exchange on Facebook last Thursday, Chappelle-Nadal, a Democrat, wrote, "I hope Trump is assassinated!" She then quickly deleted it.

Numerous politicians and citizens have demanded she resign, including Sen. Claire McCaskill, a Missouri Democrat, and Rep. William Lacy Clay, also a Missouri Democrat.
