Dem State Senator Tweets Holocaust Image At Jewish Governor

It wasn’t enough that she called for the assassination of the president. It isn’t enough that her counterparts in the Missouri legislature are calling for her removal.

Democrat Missouri State Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal just did something distasteful again.

She tweeted racist images at the Missouri governor, who just happens to be Jewish.

True Pundit shares the atrocity:

Democratic Missouri State Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal retweeted a Holocuast-themed tweet on Thursday in reference to Missouri’s Jewish Republican Gov. Eric Greitens.

The tweet is no longer on Chappelle-Nadal’s Twitter page.

The picture of the gate of the camp includes the sign with the words, “Arbeit Macht Frei,” translated to “Work Sets You Free,”  a slogan often found at the entrance of Auschwitz and other concentration camps. The train comment is in reference to the fact that many prisoners were transported to Nazi camps in that way.

Maybe Chappall Nadal struck out at Greitens because he is calling for her expulsion from the Missouri Senate.

Now, it looks like the Lieutenant Governor will take steps to expel her from the Missouri Senate.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch has this:

“Some of Missouri’s highest-ranking officials delivered on Friday an ultimatum to state Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal: Resign or be removed from office.

Gov. Eric Greitens, a Republican, issued the first warning just before noon in a series of tweets blasting Chappelle-Nadal, a Democrat, for a comment Thursday on Facebook in which she said ‘I hope Trump is assassinated!’ She quickly deleted the post.

Condemnation on Thursday was swift, with both Democrats and Republicans calling on the senator from University City to resign. But Chappelle-Nadal insisted she would not.

Lt. Gov. Mike Parson, a Republican, piled on in a noon news conference, delivering the same ultimatum.

‘I’m calling on Sen. Chappelle-Nadal to do the right thing and resign from her office,’ Parson said. ‘However, if she does not do so by veto session, I will, in my position as president of the Missouri Senate, immediately seek the expulsion pursuant to Article III Section 18 of the Missouri Constitution.’”

She’s finally crossed the line.
