MORE REPUBLICAN AND DEMOCRATIC PARTY POLITICOS DEMAND DISGRACED GUV GREITENS RESIGNATION: WILL HE GO???
Right now there aren't many politicos of any substance rallying to defend embattled Guv Eric Greitens.
His support mostly comes from anonymous online trolls and the far, far right wing of the GOP.
Fact is, the Republican Party credentials of Guv Greitens have always been suspect and he has consistently challenged and bad-mouthed his GOP colleagues.
The problem with an outsider running on good looks and stupid commercials is that there's very little political infrastructure to support an elected official in a time of crisis.
And so, the Guv and his paid shills are firing away and losing a social media battle against much more committed critics as most establishment Missouri Republicans seem content to watch the hot mess from the sidelines and let the shining political star burn out.
Real talk informed by some of the nicer GOP politicos who read this blog for a laugh: Putting Guv Lite Mike Parson in charge is looking like a very good option or at least easier than war with national media over the sordid topic of alleged revenge porn.
We'll wait and see . . . In the meantime, here are some of the best news links on the topic . . .
