Many commented on her post, and Chappelle-Nadal wrote back to one of the comments, stating, "I hope Trump is assassinated!" For her to continue to serve as a Missouri State Senator is totally unacceptable. "There are ways to remove her from office but I think she should take responsibility for her actions and resign".
Reardon asked, if she doesn't, is there anything Democrat leaders can do to punish her?
After retweeting several people who support her - and a number of racist epithets she's heard from her detractors - Chappelle-Nadal shared a new petition website. Republicans now hold 25 of 34 seats in the senate.

So if you hope that someone assassinates the President, is that a specific threat or is it an expression of a desire that someone else would assassinate the president. "But I am not, as I said, going to shy away from what caused that anger at all".
"It is quite evident that both Democrats and Republicans are in agreement she should resign from her office, and do not believe in her remarks". "If they paid half as much attention to the nuclear waste in our community as they did to me, and what I say we'd be in a much better place". "If I resigned black people wouldn't have a voice at all", she said.
