TKC MUST READ!!! WASHINGTON POST TRENDSPOTTING: #METOO NOT ADULTERY DESTROYS MISSOURI GUV GREITENS!!!
Today's very best Sunday feature from a lefty newspaper has raised a few eyebrows among the best and brightest of our blog community who graciously forwarded it our way.
To wit . . .
WAPO OFFERS VIVID DETAIL OF ALLEGATIONS AGAINST GUV GREITENS AS THE #METOO MOVEMENT WORKS TO TAKE DOWN THE POLITICO ACCUSED OF A SORDID BASEMENT SEX ESCAPADE!!!
Sign of the times, check the article and read the money line opener:
"If Missouri’s governor, Eric Greitens, is convicted or impeached in the coming weeks, as many in the state now expect, he will join a growing roster of politicians and celebrities in driving home a powerful new lesson: The shape of the American sex scandal has shifted. Adultery itself may no longer end a career, but if you use coercion or violence against women, you’re as good as done.
"The governor, a dynamic young Republican ex-Navy SEAL who carried an assault rifle in his best-known TV ad, is on trial in St. Louis on a felony charge stemming from his affair with a hairdresser who says Greitens slapped, spanked and shoved her, in addition to taking a partially nude photo of her and threatening to blackmail her with it.
"Even as his trial gets underway Monday, Greitens also faces an impeachment vote as a special session begins Friday in the Missouri House of Representatives, where the fact that his own party enjoys a large majority may be no saving grace.
“There’s been a shift,” said Missouri state Rep. Jean Evans, a Republican, “and people are more willing to speak publicly to condemn violence against women, even if it’s from your own party.”
