SHAME!!! GUV GRIETENS TAGGED AS 'SANCHO' & ALLEGED LADY SLAPPING REVENGE PORN BLACKMAILER!!! CAN MISSOURI VOTERS FORGIVE HIM???
The voters of the Show-Me State struggle to cope with an emotionally devastating political bait & switch as a sordid tale of adultery now dominates the local discourse.
Missouri voters thought they were voting for an honorable hard charging, tax cutting maverick with family values and a distinguished legacy of public service. Sadly, like any spouse coping with adultery - The reality is that the Guv is only human and just as flawed as his constituents.
More importantly, the news struggles to offer the public the vocabulary to cope with this crisis.
The Mexicans have a great word to define the ADMITTED actions of the Guv which have tarnished his tenure . . .
Sancho is Mexican Spanish slang for the other man in a relationship — in other words, the man that a husband or boyfriend knows his mujer is cheating with when said husband or boyfriend isn't around.
And so the question now confronts the electorate over the weekend . . .
AS SANCHO GREITENS HIDES BEHIND HIS WIFE . . . SHOULD MISSOURI VOTERS OFFER THE SAME PARDON AS A LOVING SPOUSE OR HOLD HIM ACCOUNTABLE FOR THE SHAME HE BROUGHT TO THE GOVERNOR'S OFFICE?!?!
A glimpse at the perspective from readers . . .
AS PROMISED!!! HERE ARE THE TOP COMMENTS ON THE CONTROVERSY FROM OUR TKC BLOG COMMUNITY!!!
Commenter examines "sketchy" nasty deets
"The whole photo thing seems sketchy. He's a savvy guy, if nothing else. A picture of a blindfolded naked woman, in his basement? First, with the blindfold it would be impossible to prove it was her let alone blackmail her. Unless she has something really unique, like a third leg or a fetus growing on the side of her head, a blindfolded naked person isn't much use for blackmailing purposes. Is it? And about his basement? Would a smart person really take a picture of someone in a location that could be tied to him? According to the transcript they had sex later that day for the second time. And several more times after that over a period of months. You'd think she might be leery of returning to someone who, on the first go, let her know that he intended to destroy her life if she ever went public. I'm all for women having the courage to come forward if they've been victimized, but I think the cause is cheapened when one who has elected to repeat the same behavior, again and again and again, later wants to be labeled the victim."
TKC Commenter On The Record . . .
"Greitens the a$$hole bully, all those commendations don't mean sh*t when you still treat people like sh*t."
Hashtag Against The Guv . . .
"He's made zero friends in local politics. None. Whatever happened to the Navy Seal Code of Honor and Ethics? Right, Eric. #TimesUp."
TKC Commenter Takes On Politics As Usual
"First of all, if Greitens has made zero friends in local Kansas City politics, that gives him bonus points in my book. Secondly, I didn't like the fact that Clinton was a undiscovered sexual predator and I don't particularly like the fact that Greitens was bonking his hairdresser. And by the way, why the f*ck is any real man going to a hairdresser instead of a barber? That stinks all by itself.
"This might be a good time to note for supporters of both parties that anybody who tries to make a career out of elected politics is probably a f*cking weasel already. So either vote or stay home, but whichever loser you're voting for is probably and untrustworthy a$$h*le."
