A St. Louis Democratic Senator explains the situation in which she called Rex Sinquefield a plantation owner.
Wrap: During an interview, State Senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal called St. Louis Businessman, Rex Sinquefield, a plantation owner when talking about the St. Louis police control bill.
Chappelle-Nadal explained her comments as being directed toward a specific audience.
|Description: "My audience when I was talking on the radio was the African-American community and there are a couple of people in St. Louis City who have been very derogatory. Instead of focusing on the content and the substance of Senate Bill 23 and House Bill 71, they have decided call me out of my name. They have called me lesbian, which I am not."|
Chappelle-Nadal says she hopes for a respectful and substantive discussion moving forward.
