Missouri State Senator Maria Chapelle-Nadal is facing serious after heat after a Facebook comment where she hoped President Trump would be assassinated.
After her remark, the Secret Service is now investigating her.
These comments came around midnight when she was going back and forth in an exchange with a man named Christopher Gagne. After making the comment, she deleted it. But as you know, the internet never forgets.

Per Fox2Now St. Louis:
In a statement to our news partners at the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Chapelle-Nadal said, “I didn’t mean what I put up. Absolutely not. I was very frustrated…Things have got to change.”
She later wrote, “I put that up on my personal Facebook and I should not have.”
As colleagues heard about the post, calls for her resignation echoed from Jefferson City to Washington D.C., but Chappelle-Nadal said she isn’t going anywhere.
“No. Absolutely not. I told people if there are legislators cheating on their wives and smoking marijuana in their offices and they’re not being asked to resign, but I am for a mistake I made and owned up to,” she said.
However, she specifically told Fox 2 News reporter Chris Hayes that she is not apologizing for her remarks.

So let’s get this straight. She called for Trump’s assassination but is now refusing to apologize. She should be fired immediately and there is no doubt about it.
