Democrat Senator Who Wants Trump Assassinated Allegedly Raising Funds To Pursue Her Cause

Democrat Senator Who Wants Trump Assassinated  Allegedly Raising Funds To Pursue Her Cause

Missouri state Senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal says she posted and then deleted a comment on Facebook that said she hoped for President Donald Trump's assassination. The Democratic Senator says she didn't mean what she posted Thursday, Aug. 17, 2017, but was frustrated with the president's reaction to the violence last weekend in Charlottesville.

According to Fox News, 'Allies of the state senator in Missouri fighting to keep her seat after saying she hopes President Trump is assassinated set up a website and encouraged people to donate money to the embattled Democrat'. But the fundraising link disappeared from the siteafter Fox News asked questions about the request for donations.

The Senator said in a statement on Wednesday, that 'she appreciates the gesture and show of support from the supporters who set up the site.'

The "I stand with Maria" website included a link to Senator Nadal's fundraising page ActBlue, an online platform used by Democrats to raise money online.

"An enthusiastic supporter started a website - - to collect signatures in support of me staying in the Missouri Senate,” Chappelle-Nadal said. “They added a link to my Senate ActBlue, which is public. The page is a nice gesture and show of support."

In a subsequent statement, Chappelle-Nadal said she asked that the fundraising link be removed.
"I have requested of my supporter to take the ActBlue tab off their website," she said.
By Wednesday evening, the fundraising button had been removed.
The website includes a petition of supporters who don’t think she should resign. The site attempts to rationalize her comments.
We know that there is a huge difference between saying that someone hopes Donald Trump is assassinated and someone calling for his assassination,” the site says.
Trouble started for Chappelle-Nadal after posting on Facebook last week: “I hope Trump is assassinated!”
Chappelle-Nadal eventually deleted the post, but a screenshot was saved and shared on Twitter.
