JEFFERSON CITY, MO (KFVS) -

Missouri's Lieutenant Governor, Mike Parson, is calling for the expulsion of State Senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal.

Parson held a press conference at the State Capitol at noon on Aug. 18.

He is calling for the expulsion under Article III, Section 18 of the Missouri Constitution in response to her call for the assassination of the President of the United States.

The Democratic Senator wrote the comment on her personal Facebook page in response to a post that suggested the vice president would try to have President Donald Trump removed from office. The post has since been deleted.

Governor Eric Greitens said if Chappelle-Nadal doesn't resign, she should be removed from office.

"Senator Chappelle-Nadal said she hopes the President is killed. Republicans and Democrats have called on her to resign. Her response: "Hell no." Last night, in an interview, she refused to apologize—twice. 

If she will not resign, the Senate can vote to remove her. I believe they should."
