Allman Report Eclipse Special: How Should GOP React To Chappelle-Nadal Comment?
ST. LOUIS —
Republican leaders in Jefferson City seem ready to try and take down State Senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal over her Facebook comment last week reading, "I hope Trump is assassinated!"
Missouri Lieutenant Governor Mike Parsons says leadership with the Missouri State Senate is already starting the process of having her removed from office after she refused to resign.
Former Missouri House Speaker Tim Jones appeared on The Allman Report Monday in Columbia for the Eclipse Special, voicing full support for her removal. However, Jamie disagreed, saying this would be a good time to pull back on calls to resign. He says that the Republicans could be the better party by letting something that someone said go for once, hopefully driving politics in the country back to a more sane place.
Jones disagrees, saying that Republicans during the last few years have been publicly shamed and forced out for far less.
