Greitens faces criminal investigation over allegations stemming from his affair

Source: stltoday.com

JEFFERSON CITY • St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner will launch a criminal investigation into accusations engulfing Gov. Eric Greitens, she announced Thursday afternoon.

Greitens’ acknowledgment Wednesday of an extramarital affair — and denial of possible blackmail — shook the GOP-controlled state capital on Thursday.

While GOP legislative leaders limited their statements to expressions of concern and requests that Greitens be honest about what happened, a bipartisan chorus of senators called on Attorney General Josh Hawley, a Republican, to investigate.

“The seriousness of this allegation and the implications it will have on the integrity of our state government are deeply disturbing,” their letter said.

7. Greitens apologists are spreading the lie that he was a Democrat when this affair occurred.

If anyone needs ammo to refute this lie, here it is. I doubt the apologist liars are capable of acknowledging proof 'n' facts 'n' stuff, but it exposes their lies.

1. A quote from the St. Louis Post-Dispatch article dated January 11, 2018: "an affair that became physically intimate for the first time on the morning of March 21, 2015" http://www.stltoday.com/news/local/govt-and-politics/greitens-admits-affair-but-denies-allegation-he-blackmailed-woman-with/article_b5f28d4d-72bd-512c-870b-da7dc7cd1fe3.html

2. Supported by a quote from the previous paragraph of the same article: "he took a photo while she was bound, blindfolded and partly undressed during a sexual encounter at Greitens’ St. Louis home in March 2015. That was about a month after his first public statements confirming he was considering a political run."

3. A link to the Washington Free Beacon; it's the February 19th, 2015 issue: http://freebeacon.com/politics/the-great-jewish-hope/

4. The money quote statement from the Free Beacon article: "'I’m looking at something in the executive branch where I can lead and actually make a difference, governor or lieutenant governor,' he says.
He will run as a Republican"

5. He announced his run as a Republican in February 2015.

A. The affair started on March 21st 2015 and continued throughout 2015, as stated in the Post Dispatch article.

B. The "He will run as a Republican" quote from the Washington Free Beacon predates the affair and blackmail threat. Therefore, Greitens was definitely a republican, not a Democrat, when he committed this crime.
