Missouri state senator drops ‘f-bomb’ multiple times in angry response to governor

As the death of 18-year-old Michael Brown reaches Trayvon Martin-like proportions, with the police in Ferguson, Mo., playing the role of George Zimmerman, a state senator there has taken debate to the gutter.

Missouri state Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal posted a number of profanity-laced tweets early Thursday directed at Gov. Jay Nixon, a fellow Democrat, accusing him of lying about the civil unrest in Ferguson, according to the Los Angeles Times.

In a series of tweets, the governor called for peace “while safeguarding rights of citizens and the press.” His effort drew two “f-bombs” from Chappelle-Nadal, in capital letters!

*Caution: Strong Language

It’s difficult to have a discussion with dialogue like that, and we can only imagine Chappelle-Nadal’s response if Nixon was a Republican.

The state senator has joined with those protesting the death of Brown, and was featured Wednesday on MSNBC after being tear-gassed earlier in the week.

She was critical of Nixon in that appearance, calling him a “coward.”

“Our governor, Governor Nixon, has been absent from the minority community, not for a few years, but for a few decades, and this is inexcusable,” Chappelle-Nadal told host Andrea Mitchell. “And now that the world’s eyes are on Missouri… the governor is now here. But he’s not really at Ground Zero. He’s never come to Ground Zero… For that, I call him a coward.”

The Democrat had a number of followers praise her actions, but there were a few who tried to remind Chappelle-Nadal of her position in the community:
