JEFFERSON CITY, Missouri – Lieutenant Governor Mike Parson made the following statement Sunday afternoon in response to a press conference held by Senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal.

“Senator Chappelle-Nadal’s statement today changes nothing. The United States of America is a nation of law and order, and there are consequences for your actions, especially if you are an elected official. The Senator has until veto session to resign, or my colleagues and I will move to expel her. Their is no excuse for this kind of behavior, and it is an embarrassment for our country and the State of Missouri.”
