Senator:

You took an oath when you were sworn into office.
An oath is a promise made before God.
Here is what that oath required of you:
“I do solemnly swear, or affirm, that I will support the Constitution of the United States and of the state of Missouri, and faithfully perform the duties of my office, and that I will not knowingly receive, directly or indirectly, any money or other valuable thing for the performance or nonperformance of any act or duty pertaining to my office, other than the compensation allowed by law.”  Article III, § 15 Mo. Const.
As you are also aware, the constitution provides “and any member convicted of having violated his oath or affirmation shall be deemed guilty of perjury, and be forever disqualified from holding any office of trust or profit in this state.” Article III, § 15 Mo. Const.
 
Donald Trump was lawfully elected to the Presidency.  He was elected by electors under the Constitution.   There is only one lawful procedure to remove him, and that is impeachment.  Any other advocated method of removing him would be contrary to the Constitution.  By advocating for his assassination, you have violated your oath to “support the Constitution of the United States.
 
The duties of your office must also be performed faithfully.  By advocating for the commission of a federal felony (assasination) you have failed to faithfully perform the duties of your office.  What you did is in fact a federal felony (18 USC 879).  We do not expect our state office holders to commit felonies.
 
You called this a mistake.  No, madam, this is NOT a mistake.  A spelling error is a mistake.  Using “from” when you mean “form” is a mistake.  Poor word choice is a mistake.   These are things that are innocent, because they carry with them no blame.  What you did is not a mistake, because it is not innocent. You spoke from the heart, with hatred and bigotry.  You hoped for the death of a duly elected federal official.  It was knowing.  It was intentional.  It has brought discredit upon the great State of Missouri.  It has brought discredit on the Democratic Party.  It reflects your intolerance of other ideas and persons. 
 
I am asking the Attorney General to initiate proceedings in Quo Warranto to remove you from office effective immediately.  You can preserve your ability to run for office later only by resigning now.
 
You have no place in public office, and should remove yourself from public life.  People can disagree with your politics and it has nothing to do with the color of your skin or where your ancestors came from.  Not everything is about you.  We have enough division in this country without you adding to it.
