JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (KMOX) – The Missouri Republican Party is out with a statement following questionable Facebook comments made by State Rep. Warren Love.

Love took to Facebook this week, calling for the hanging of those responsible for vandalism to a Confederate monument in Springfield.

State GOP Chairman Todd Graves, in a statement sent to reporters more than a full day after Love made his comments, says, “We condemn Representative Love’s comments just as we condemned Senator Chapelle-Nadal’s recent comments, and any other acts or expressions that condone violence in any way.”

Chapelle-Nadal used Facebook to comment her hope that Donald Trump is assassinated.

The Missouri GOP called for Chapelle-Nadal’s resignation over her comments. It did not call for Love’s resignation.
