MISSOURI GUV GREITENS MUST NOW RUN THE GAUNTLET OF MSM PUBLIC SHAMING!!!
The next part of his fight to restore public confidence for Guv Greitens isn't gonna be pretty . . . He's gotta get back out in public.
He has offered his 2nd apology which was a lot more convincing than the 1st and now it's up to investigators and his GOP critics to challenge him on allegations of wrongdoing in allegedly using "state-paid" resources to address the scandal. As always in politics, it's questions about a coverup that could prove to be the undoing of an elected official and not the initial misdeed.
And so . . . The Guv is going to have to get back out there and risk uncomfortable showdowns against media questions. On the bright side, he'll build sympathy from supporters if newsies are too hard on him because voters hate journalists slightly more than politicians. Getting back to his agenda in the midst of a crisis will the be the greatest test of his political career and offers him an opportunity to prove his claims about the strength of his leadership.
