Greitens admits he engaged in affair before he entered politics

Greitens admits he engaged in affair before he entered politics”

Greitens released his statement in response to the story.

In the recorded conversation, the woman said Greitens apologized afterward and told her he deleted the picture, KMOV reported.

Late Wednesday night, the lawyer for Governor Eric Greitens, James F. Bennett, issued a new statement in response to a report from KMOV-TV in St. Louis. "This personal matter has been addressed by the governor and Mrs. Greitens privately years ago when it happened". "The outrageous claims of improper conduct regarding these nearly three-year-ago events are false".

The accusations were published a year and a day after Greitens was inaugurated and hours after the Republican governor delivered his second State of the State address.

The Republican politician confirmed that he had the illicit affair after his former lover's now ex-husband revealed the story to St Louis TV station. News 4 obtained a recording from the woman's ex-husband in which the unidentified woman detailed her alleged affair with Greitens, including how after one intimate moment, he put a blindfold on her. He then tried to go public with his story and with the recording. She was married at the time of the affair, as was Greitens.

"You're never going to mention my name, otherwise this picture will be everywhere", Greitens told the woman, she claims on the audio.

KMOV aired parts of a recording of a woman telling her then-husband about a consensual sexual encounter she had with Greitens in 2015, before he became governor.

The ex-husband recorded his wife confessing to her sexual encounters with Greitens, but according to the report, she did not know she was being recorded.

Earlier this year, Greitens made a point of appointing 25 women in 25 days - including several Springfield women - to mark the 25th anniversary of the Women's Foundation. She said in the audio that she wasn't aware he was doing it until she saw a flash of light through the blindfold, followed by his alleged verbal threat. By the November election, the man took to social media, to call Greitens a "homewrecker", according to KMOV.

Greitens has received mixed reviews in the media as governor.

The email read: 'Eric, I am asking you to please consider all who are involved and the circumstances around us.

"I wanted to share with you some statements that are important in light of news you may have seen tonight". This isn't fair to me, nor anyone close to us.

I have nothing but respect for Dr. Greitens. "I just want to move on with my life".

The woman's ex-husband, however, still refuses to forgive Greitens for his "inhuman" and "evil" behavior.

"Throughout that summer ... the power of manipulation that Mr. Greitens had over my wife had become undeniable", he said in the written statements, which were provided through his attorney, Albert Watkins.

The governor, who billed himself as a values-based family man, said in a statement that being unfaithful in his marriage was a "deeply personal mistake".

"Eric took responsibility, and we dealt with this honestly and privately", the statement continued.
