The resignation of Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal

This petition had 297 supporters

On Thursday, August 17 2017 Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal (D) of  Missouri  wrote on her personal Facebook page "I hope Trump is assassinated."  This, coming from United States Senator is unacceptable and treason in the highest form.  Not only is she a United States senator,  but she is also a grown adult with an ability to think before she acts; she knew what she was doing.  We The People  expect and demand more from our Country's leaders than treasonous posts that promote civil unrest.  Our leaders must be held to the highest of standards and if they betray the American people's trust, they must voluntarily remove themselves from office. 

In times such as these, when political tensions are at its highest, we must have leaders who can maintain their composure, levelheadedness, and clarity of thought. If our leaders cannot do that - especially under pressure - they must step aside and allow somebody who can to take the lead.  Senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal, in her post, has demonstrated that she is  incapable of being a leader of the people of these Great United States in a manner that best suits the title of her office. It makes no difference if she deleted the Facebook post; the damage was already done. And the fact that she is refusing to step aside after what she has done demonstrates her political ambitions are of a selfish nature and not for what is in the best interests of the people she has been charged to lead. This petition is to demonstrate how many people have lost faith in Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal's ability to execute the responsibilities of her office and therefore believe she must step down.
