Now he needs to criticize Trump for not building a wall and talk about a "young buck" using his food stamps to buy T-Bones and he'll be ready to primary Trump in 2020.

"As I have said before, I made a personal mistake before I was Governor. I did not commit a crime.

With today’s disappointing and misguided political decision, my confidence in our prosecutorial system is shaken, but not broken. I know this will be righted soon.
The people of Missouri deserve better than a reckless liberal prosecutor who uses her office to score political points.

I look forward to the legal remedies to reverse this action.
This will not for a moment deter me from doing the important work of the great people of Missouri."



Almost as bad?

this news is just the tip of the iceberg as to how crooked and slimy this fucker is. From an op-ed in the local paper calling for him to resign
http://www.stltoday.com/opinion/editori ... f0051.html

... But no one should be surprised. During 13 months in office, Republican Gov. Eric Greitens has blazed a trail of abuse, flaunting of the state’s Sunshine Law

(a law expressly states that meetings, records, votes, actions and deliberations of public governmental bodies are to be open to the public.

The law stipulated that specific instances when a meeting, record or vote may be closed should be narrowly defined and interpreted to promote government openness. Public meetings are designated to be held at convenient times, to be accessible to the public and held in facilities large enough to accommodate the expected audience) ,


heavily relying on dark-money campaign accounts to attack opponents, and flippantly dismissing anyone who called for his public accountability.

This is not the person Missourians thought they were voting for in 2016. Missourians have every right to demand a full-time governor who is here to serve our state’s best interests. Greitens cannot effectively represent Missouri as governor while defending himself against the serious charges that caused him to be led away by sheriff’s deputies Thursday. He should resign.

His grand jury indictment stems from an extramarital affair with his former hairdresser in 2015, exactly as he was preparing to run for governor. Greitens has not denied allegations that he took photographs of his partially nude and blindfolded hairdresser while she protested. Her hands were allegedly duct-taped to exercise rings in his basement. He does deny having threatened to distribute the photos if the woman exposed their affair.

He campaigned by portraying himself as a devoted husband and father. That, of course, was a lie. His shoot-em-up videos were designed to wow voters, but Greitens in office has consistently yielded one disappointment after another.

Despite the advantage of a veto-proof GOP majority in both houses of the Legislature, Greitens nonetheless finds himself without many political allies in Jefferson City. He ran as a party outsider and ceaselessly insulted the experienced lawmakers who should have been his champions in the state Capitol.

“I’ve never been in politics before,” he wrote in a campaign message to his supporters, “but even in the brief time that I’ve been running for Governor, I’ve been exposed to some of the worst people I’ve ever known. Liars, cowards, sociopaths. They are often deeply broken and disturbed people, who — like criminals who prey on the innocent — take their pleasure and make their living by victimizing honest people. They are drawn to politics as vultures flock to rotting meat — and they feed off the carcasses of vice.”

Given what we now know, he was in no position to cast judgment.

Even after taking office, Greitens continued feuding with GOP lawmakers, using anonymous campaign contributions to attack Republican senators and the Democratic state auditor. To say there’s some schadenfreude in the Capitol over his troubles would not be an overstatement. His defenders are hard to find.

Greitens relied heavily on Facebook, not the party apparatus, to get his message out. He avoided answering questions from reporters and ordered his staff to do the same. He always appeared to be looking beyond the governor’s office.

This asshole and Megan Barry should hook up. If they haven't already.

It's funny to read the Facebook comments: "THIS IS OUTRAGEOUS! Stupid Dems are reaching and charging the GOP with every stupid thing they can think of!" I don't care what side you're on, all these assholes need to be exposed. If you're outted as a piece of shit, you shouldn't be in the job.
