Louis prosecutor files additional charge against Gov. Greitens

Louis prosecutor files additional charge against Gov. Greitens”

Greitens also faces a felony charge related to accusations from his former mistress who alleges he bound her hands with tape, put a blindfold on her, took a partially nude photo of her and then threated to release the photo if she mentioned his name, according to a Missouri House committee report.

Missouri Attorney General Josh Hawley says his office is ready to assist the St. Louis prosecutor with a felony case against Gov. Eric Greitens related to his use of a charity donor list for his 2016 political campaign. The president of the Mission Continues said neither Greitens nor K.T. had permission from the charity to use the list for political purposes or disclose it to the fundraiser, the charging documents say.

The governor allegedly told the person to e-mail the donor list to Greitens's fundraiser. These are serious charges-and an important reminder that no one is above the law in Missouri. "To be specific, within the last several days we have obtained evidence of potential criminal violations of Missouri law and the evidence indicates that these potentially criminal acts were committed by Governor Eric Greitens".

A St. Louis prosecutor has charged Greitens with two counts of tampering with computer data to defraud or obtain property. The law has a three-year statute of limitations. At the time the inquiry was announced, the Associated Press reported Gov. Greitens used an email address for the charity to arrange political meetings as he prepared to launch his first bid for public office. He turned it over to St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner, who has jurisdiction in the matter.

Greitens has admitted to the affair but said it was consensual.

In addition to the Circuit Attorney's Office, Hawley said he turned the evidence over to the House Committee investigating Gov. Greitens.

Hawley's official spokeswoman, Mary Compton, called Greitens' request "frivolous" and said the attorney general's office would argue against the motion. "The fact that the governor has been credibly accused of sexual misconduct does not mean he is exempt from investigation into other wrongdoing".
