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 . . .
