Missouri governor slams blackmail allegations as 'political witch hunt'

Missouri governor slams blackmail allegations as 'political witch hunt'

Rep. Greg Razer, another Democrat from Kansas City, told KCUR that woman was "unanimously. labeled.as a credible witness".

"If he doesn't, it will be the duty of the House of Representatives to restore integrity to the executive branch of state government", House Minority Leader Gail McCann Beatty said in a statement.

Late Wednesday, Democratic U.S. Sen.

Greitens continued to characterize the allegations against him as an "absurd political witch hunt" that dates to the beginning of his political career.

The Republican governor is charged with invasion of privacy for allegedly taking a compromising photo without the consent of a woman he was having an affair with in 2015, before he was elected.

The accusations concerning Greitens and the hairdresser are not the only problems he faces.

Yvonne Staples, key member of Staple Singers, dies at 80
After Pops Staples died in 2000, the group dissolved, and Mavis Staples - the group's lead vocalist - went into a deep funk. Singer Yvonne Staples poses for a portrait at the 42nd NAACP Image Awards held at The Shrine Auditorium on March 4, 2011.


The indictment stems from allegations he threatened to release a naked photo of a woman he was having an affair with in 2015 if she revealed their relationship.

In his statement, Greitens said he expects the report being released Wednesday night "will include lies and falsehoods".

She also repeated her claim that Greitens took a photo of her without permission while she was bound and nude in the basement of his home during the initial encounter of their affair. She didn't give consent to be disrobed or kissed, the report said. "I just, like, was crying". "Eric, what in the heck?" She noted that "we didn't ever have intercourse throughout all of the times that I saw him".

A friend of the woman's also testified that the woman said she was upset during one encounter but still performed a sex act on Greitens "so that she could leave". She said she arrived around 7 a.m. and told him she had to be at work in 45 minutes. She told the committee Greitens promised he had deleted it.

The governor said he had no intention of resigning and planned to continue serving the people of Missouri.

The woman testified she returned to Greitens' house later that day because she had forgotten her keys. "They are going to be everywhere, and then everyone will know what a little wh- you are".

"I can't speak for other members of the committee, but I did support the extension to the extent that I believe there is more evidence that the committee needs to review", she said.

The woman testified that she would not have been interested if he simply told her he wanted to have sex at that time, but she thought he was suggesting a "sexy workout" and was curious and confused. "I was so embarrassed and ashamed, because I really felt like a whore because I had let him get me in this situation". I don't want this.

The committee met on Monday, again in a closed-door session.

A grand jury in February indicted Greitens on one felony count of invasion of privacy for allegedly taking and transmitting the photo.

The woman's claims contradicted Greitens' contention that "there was no violence" and "no threat of violence" in what the governor has described as a consensual extramarital affair.
