Reaction to Ferguson, Missouri shooting

In August 2014, Chaeppelle-Nadal took to the streets to challenge the police response and the actions of Gov. Jay Nixon (D) in the aftermath of the shooting of Michael Brown. Chappelle-Nadal joined protests in Ferguson and has regularly tweeted about the events. The senator reported that she was one of a group of 150 to be teargassed by police. At a press conference, Chappelle-Nadal asked police chief Thomas Jackson if she would be gassed again, to which he replied, "I hope not."[3] She also used Twitter to criticize Nixon, at one point calling for his resignation.[4] In a video posted to Vine by St. Louis alderman Antonio French, Chappelle-Nadal can be seen holding a sign showing Nixon's face, chanting, "This is your governor that could care less about the black community!"[5] Chappelle-Nadal escalated her criticism of Nixon's absence from the area, twice replying to him with profanity. Following Nixon's announcement that the state highway patrol would be taking over from the Ferguson police, Chappelle-Nadal declared that the situation "is his Katrina!"[6][7] Nixon responded by calling for the officer who shot Brown to be identified "as expeditiously as possible."[8] Chappelle-Nadal had harsh words for the highway patrol's prior involvement in Ferguson, saying, "I approve their budget, so you know that I'm p***ed off."[9]

Scorecards

See also: State legislative scorecards and State legislative scorecards in Missouri

Legislative scorecards are used to evaluate elected public officials based on voting record. Some scorecards are created by political advocacy groups with a focus on specific issues, while others are developed by newspapers and are broad in scope. Scorecards are meant to be used as a tool for voters to have a quick picture of whether their views align with a particular legislator's record.

Because scorecards can be specific to particular issues or general to a state’s legislative term, for example, each report should be considered on its own merits. Each entity that publishes these reports uses different methodologies and definitions for the terms used.

An overview for scorecards in all 50 states can be found on this page. To contribute to the list of Missouri scorecards, email suggestions to scorecards@ballotpedia.org.

Please see our writing guidelines if you would like to add results from an individual scorecard to this legislator's profile.
