Missouri Gov. Accused Of Blackmail Allegedly Slapped Ex-Lover

Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens admits extramarital affair but denies reports he blackmailed woman

"I am not a part of politics".

Another day, another political scandal. Some are twisting the knife. But his attorney is forcefully denying that he took a compromising photo of the woman as a way to make her not reveal the affair.

Greitens has acknowledged being "unfaithful" in his marriage, but his attorney has denied allegations contained in a recorded conversation between the woman and her ex-husband that Grietens coerced the women to remain silent by taking a photo of her with her trousers down. Gov. Peter Kinder in several debates for Kinder's acquaintance with a former stripper.

Vince Harris, from the small town of Trenton, northeast of Kansas City, took to Greitens' Facebook page to defend him against commenters who labeled the governor a hypocrite for campaigning on family values in 2016 though he had cheated on his wife in 2015.

On Thursday, the square-jawed 43-year-old was fighting allegations that he photographed a hairdresser naked while having an affair with her and threatened to publicize the image if she spoke about their relationship. But after consideration, she said, she concluded that an investigation is necessary. Having an extramarital affair with someone who is married is also bad.

The unnamed woman made off-the-record remarks to Trager about the affair. The woman's ex, however, has suggested that Greitens' conduct amounted to blackmail.

This comes as St. Louis City Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner announced she's opening a criminal investigation into the allegations against Greitens. Gary Romine, R-Farmington, to broach the possibility of impeachment.

All this came tumbling out on what was supposed to be a banner evening for Greitens.

"The governor is very confident he will be cleared in any investigation", Greitens' lawyer, James Bennett, said. "We want transparency. We want to know exactly what happened".

The Greitens first acknowledged the affair in a joint statement Thursday, saying, "A few years ago, before Eric was elected Governor, there was a time when he was unfaithful in our marriage", the Greitens said in a joint statement. He pointed to how Greitens constantly picked fights with Republican lawmakers who he needs to pass his agenda. "I don't necessarily see interests that don't like him to try to use this to kill him".

The wife of Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens says she has "a loving marriage and an awesome family", despite her Republican husband's admitted infidelity before he was voted into office.

"I think it's absolutely inhumane and evil, I truly do", the ex-husband said. In these matters, when you're dealing with a crisis situation, you need to get a statement out there that will withstand the test of time.

The story was reported by St. Louis TV station KMOV shortly after Greitens delivered his State of the State address Wednesday night. National publications are already speculating that the news could damage Greitens' ambitions to be a presidential or vice presidential candidate.

Behind the scenes, however, Greitens and his wife worked feverishly to stanch the bleeding and save his political career. As long as Greitens is governor, he could prevent that popular incentive from being issued for years - a decision worth hundreds of millions of dollars to banks, developers and syndicators that depend on the program. Parson also advocated for undoing Greitens' cuts to in-home health care for elderly and low-income residents.

"I made sure the governor knew that I understood the kind of pressure that men were under. that I've prayed for him and will continue to pray for him", Emery said.
