MISSOURI GOP CALL FOR RESIGNATION!!! GUV GREITENS PENS REAL TALK SECOND APOLOGY!!! TIME TO LET IT GO???



Missouri Republicans struggle to regain the moral high-ground but Guv Greitens makes a bold move in his latest statement that deserves recognition.

The 2nd apology and far more convincing aplogy from Greitens just now:



"Before I was elected Governor, I made a mistake. It was a personal mistake, and I am sorry. I am sorry for the pain it caused to everyone impacted, including Sheena, our boys, our families, our friends, and people who have relied on me. I took responsibility with my family back when this happened, asked for God’s forgiveness and Sheena’s, and Sheena and I dealt with this together, privately. I was, and today I still am, grateful for her forgiveness and love.

"Much has now been written about this, and many of the assertions made have not been truthful and have proven extremely hurtful to Sheena, as well as to me. For us, the allegations that go so far beyond the facts have made this much more difficult. I made a mistake, I regret it, and Sheena and I have dealt with it between us. For us, that is where this story starts, and that is where this story ends. We again ask for privacy for everyone involved.

"Then and now, we are focused on moving forward. I ask for your forgiveness and hope you can find it in your heart to do so. I assure you that this personal mistake will not deter us from the mission we were sent here to do. We have been, and we will, continue to work for and to fight for the people of Missouri. We will take our state in a new and better direction. There is still much work to be done, and we are back to work for the people of Missouri."

Better than any media outlet in Missouri . . . Two days ago we suggested that Guv Greitens offer a real apology. He did it. Now we want to know from TKC denizens how this community of readers can help the Guv & Missouri move past this hot mess. It seems that that alleged conflict involving a state-paid worker is the most significant obstacle to overcome and/or address. You decide . . .

The comments about the timing of the scandal deserve to be mentioned. Right before tax reform really gets started.

Missouri dumbass said...

I forgive him!

Where is my meth!

He's got bigger problems than tax reform.

If his own party is turning on him then that's where he is going to have to start cracking down.

Absolutely agree. This is really a battle between Republicans. Blaming it on "Democratic Operatives" was just a gut reaction. The "scandal" seems like more of an opportunity for the Dems than something they orchestrated. That's giving them way too much credit.

He probably ought to sue you for libel.

This is the WILD MAN said...

Calm down, Martha. I think you're out of your depth here. I think this is Tony trying to be somewhat objective if he knows how. As for the Governor, I think he needs all the allies he can get. God help him if he really is looking for ideas from a blogger and his fans. LOL!

Either way, you need to stay warm in your nasty Carthage, Missouri trailer tonight. Good luck to you!

Leave it alone, the next election
will decide it. Let him do the job he was already elected to do now.

The Gov stays just like Guv Jay Nixon. Their will be always a few that want to grandstand and try to take advantage of a mistake. Just go ask Brittany Burke.

You are fucked like a duck Governor Grietens.

I think anyone calling for Governor Greitens resignation is a blatant ANTI-SEMITE!

Under no circumstances should he allow himself to be pushed around by a bunch of Liberal Jew-Hating Democrats and their media pals who took this 3 year old story and tried to smear him and his family, disrespected the woman involved who requested privacy and anonymity, just so they could score political points, as they're still incredibly angry at MO voters for sweeping Republicans into statewide offices.

JJ said...

It's up to him now.

Look for the Guv to shut reporters down when they ask about this.

But I agree with Tony that he needs to address the allegations that he directed state employees to investigate the woman. That is what could really bring down his administration.

Thanks Hollywood and Progressives everywhere, for taking time out from raping each other and your office subordinates to preach once again from your self appointed, holier-than-thou pederast perch in Catamite California.

You purient, pervy Progressive pukes know no shame.

He should at least promise not to fuck any more slut wives of Democucks, even though there are probably 50000 or more of them in St Louis alone. At least only a small percentage of them are attractive enough to fuck.

I'm glad he gave a real apology. It's good practice for him.

He'll have to do it again when he resigns.

Greitens is not fit to be governor. With his level of perversion he would be a perfect fit for the US Senate or he could be the next Bill Clinton.

so, the guy got some "trim" on the side...seems that should be between he and his wife...if they have settled the issue between themselves, what's the issue with the state's voters....move on, follow or get the fuck out of the way...let the guy do what he was elected to do....

Regardless of the fact the Democrats can do the same thing, with members of their own gender, Republicans are held to a different standard . It's just that simple . I don't really care if the governor's old lady stays or throws her shit in a U-Haul . I did not vote for her.

Unfortunately there's a lot of people are not gonna vote for him this time either. When you change political parties or sexual partners at the drop of a hat, your core values are crap and you can't be trusted.

Gives the tapes to the FBI? What a fucking hoot. The lead investigator in the Trump mess was fucking another married FBI employee. So what is the FBI now, the DNC pussy posse? Have people become so damn simple and stupid that they think involving Federal agencies in a fucking affair is required? How fucking stupid does this shit have to get for Christ's sakes? Move on shit flakes.

Time to let it go?

TKC commenters can't let go of Bill Clinton's affair 20 years later.

I want to know about the other lady.

For me this story is a non starter.....A pissed husband seeking revenge against the Guv because the slut wife had an afffair. It was not rape, she was willing and so was he. After counseling the Guv and Mrs GUv are back in love.

END OF STORY.
