SHOCK!!! MISSOURI GUV GREITENS ADMITS CHEATING ON HIS WIFE AMID ALLEGATIONS OF REVENGE PORN THREATS!!!
Over the weekend he was talking about prayer and God to start the New Year . . . Now Guv Eric Greitens is just another disgraced politico confronting some very nasty charges.
KMOV: Blackmail alleged as Governor Greitens admits to extramarital affair
Governor Eric Greitens on Wednesday night confirmed to News 4 he had an extramarital affair, an admission a months-long News 4 investigation prompted.
In a recording obtained by News 4, a woman says she had a sexual encounter with Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens and that he tried to blackmail her to keep the encounter quiet.
The details were provided to News 4 by the woman’s ex-husband, claiming the sexual relationship happened between his now ex-wife and Greitens in March 2015. News 4 is not naming the woman and she has not made an on-the-record comment about the story.
According to the ex-husband, the recording was made just days after Greitens’ and the woman’s first sexual encounter. And also that Greitens took a photograph during the encounter to use as “blackmail” according to the ex-husband ...
The Governor and his wife released the following statement:
Missouri Guv & Wife: "A few years ago, before Eric was elected Governor, there was a time when he was unfaithful in our marriage. This was a deeply personal mistake. Eric took responsibility, and we dealt with this together honestly and privately. While we never would have wished for this pain in our marriage, or the pain that this has caused others, with God’s mercy Sheena has forgiven and we have emerged stronger. We understand that there will be some people who cannot forgive – but for those who can find it in your heart, Eric asks for your forgiveness, and we are grateful for your love, your compassion, and your prayers."
Sheena Greitens added:
"We have a loving marriage and an awesome family; anything beyond that is between us and God. I want the media and those who wish to peddle gossip to stay away from me and my children."
Jackson County Democrats exclaim . . .
"Claims that Greitens may the most corrupt state executive in the nation were already well supported, but today's reports bring him down to a level most wouldn't have expected from a Navy SEAL who was believed to have a bright future in the national Republican party. Greitens has spent an unusual amount of time outside Missouri attending national fundraisers and meeting with party leaders in Washington DC.
"Upon learning of the news, Jackson County Democratic Committee Chairman Paul Wrabec said "Eric Greitens has been modeling himself very clearly after Donald Trump since he entered the race for Governor in 2015. He has shown little respect for the office he holds or for the rule of law. Even I wouldn't have expected he would extend his mirroring of Trump to affairs and blackmail. This is a sad day for Missouri and possibly a permanent stain on the office of the Governor." He added that Jefferson City remains a toxic environment for ethics, both political and personal.
"Greitens delivered his second State of the State address earlier this evening, failing to propose a budget for the second year."

Now, the MSM spin is that he had the affair "before he entered politics" but that's mostly political garbage given that. . .
