Politician apologizes for inflammatory statement about President Trump

23 August 2017

At a news conference at Wellspring Church in Ferguson on Sunday, she said she had made a mistake and let others down. Maria Chappelle-Nadal's (D-University City) committee duties after she issued a controversial statement on Facebook, reports KRCG.

But top Missouri lawmakers including the state's governor are calling for her step down.

Meanwhile, Lt. Governor Parson said he will ask senators to remove Chappelle-Nadal from office if she does not resign by the time lawmakers convene September 13 to consider veto overrides.

Missouri Lt. Gov. Mike Parson (R), who is also president of the state Senate, said he plans to do just that if Chappelle-Nadal doesn't step down.

Chappelle-Nada claims that she was replying to responses to an original statement she posted, expressing her frustration with Trump. She said it was in response to the way she believed Trump himself responded to the protests in Charlottesville.

The same man sharing the screenshot, talk show host Mark Reardon of KMOX, said Chappelle-Nadal "refused to apologize" when interviewed on Thursday. "And I also apologize to my colleagues in the Missouri legislature for the mistake that I made".

I am calling for her immediate recusal and arrest! "But I am not going to shy away from what caused that anger at all, I'm not going to shy away from that".

And he could move back for more than twice the £8million he was sold for to West Brom by United's then boss Luis van Gaal. Arsenal previously showed an interest in signing Evans a year ago but West Brom also rejected the Gunners approach.

"I condemn it", McCaskill told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

We argue that she needs to resign her office immediately, and some in both parties called on her to do so.

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.

At this point, the Post-Dispatch noted, Chappelle-Nadal would do nothing but damage the already struggling Democratic Party in Missouri. They also noted that her legislative agenda would meet brick-wall opposition.

Chappelle-Nadal has been defiant when asked if she'll depart before then. "It's outrageous and she should resign".

"Well, of course it took some time for her to maybe get her thoughts together, but I think four days is absolutely too much time when you are hoping that the president gets assassinated", the guest replied. He added he would move to remove Chappelle-Nadal from any appointments over which he has jurisdiction.
