COLUMBIA, Mo. - Two Missouri lawmakers have recently drawn controversy after their provocative social media postings.
Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal, D-University City, posted her hopes that someone would assassinate President Donald Trump. She later apologized for her post and was censured by her colleagues in the Senate.
Rep. Warren Love, R-Osceola, called for the execution of the vandals of a Confederate memorial, saying the vandals should be hanged "from a tall tree by a long rope." He has apologized for his post, as well.
