Missouri Governor Greitens Indicted [VIDEO]

The allegations, if true, are pretty ugly and damning. Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens, a Republican, has been indicted on a felony charge related to covering up an extramarital affair that he’s already admitted to.

The story broke last month that Greitens had had an affair, and it’s positively disgusting.

In a recording obtained by News 4, a woman says she had a sexual encounter with Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens and that he tried to blackmail her to keep the encounter quiet.

The details were provided to News 4 by the woman’s ex-husband, claiming the sexual relationship happened between his now ex-wife and Greitens in March 2015. News 4 is not naming the woman and she has not made an on-the-record comment about the story.

According to the ex-husband, the recording was made just days after Greitens’ and the woman’s first sexual encounter. And also that Greitens took a photograph during the encounter to use as “blackmail” according to the ex-husband.

The indictment is for first-degree felony invasion of privacy.

The indictment alleges that Greitens took a picture of a person either fully or partially nude without their knowledge or consent and then transmitted that image so that he could have access to it at a later time via a computer.

So the question is, did Greitens actually take the picture or not? His lawyer says this is a baseless charge.

Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens’ attorney says a felony invasion of privacy charge against the Republican is “baseless and unfounded.”

Lawyer Edward Dowd on Thursday said the governor is “absolutely innocent” in response to St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner’s announcement of a grand jury indictment against Greitens related to his affair with a woman in 2015.

Dowd in a statement said Greitens will file a motion to dismiss the charges.

Gardner launched an investigation in January after Greitens admitted to the affair with his St. Louis hairdresser that began in March 2015. He was elected governor in November 2016.

It would be better if Greitens did resign, but he won’t. It would be better for Missouri, and for his family, but he won’t. And it’s for exactly the same reason that the Democrat mayor of Nashville, Megan Barry, won’t resign after acknowledging her affair with the now-former head of her security detail. Even though there may be criminal charges pending in this case as well.

Both sides of the aisle have given up claims to moral superiority. Now, it’s all about keeping power, even when you may be found abusing it for your own gain. It used to be that these types of politicians immediately resigned when the stories exposing their moral failings broke. That doesn’t happen anymore. Power is more important than morals in politics now.
