Missouri governor Eric Greitens 'sexually abused and blackmailed hairdresser'

Humphreys' call for Greitens to step down signals the first public disavowal from a prominent top individual donor to Greitens' campaign.

23 - More Republican state lawmakers, including some early Greitens supporters, call for the governor to resign.

Rep. Nate Walker, R-Kirksville, said Greitens should resign.

While on the ground, she said Greitens took down his trousers and she engaged in oral sex with him. Jerry Brown agreed Wednesday to deploy 400 National Guard troops at President Donald Trump's request, but not all will head to the U.S. -Mexico border as Trump wants and none will enforce federal immigration enforcement. Jamilah Nasheed of St. Louis first floated the idea of stopping future votes. He then told her he was going to show her how to do a proper pull up, she said.

In 2015, Greitens admitted the affair with the woman happened, but he has denied any allegations of blackmail or violence.

Richard on Thursday stopped short of calling on Greitens to resign.

Republican Sen. Rob Schaaf, a frequent critic of the governor, said the governor already has an attorney on his staff, Lucinda Luetkemeyer. During a haircut, Greitens moved his hand "all the way up", to her crotch without consent, the woman said, a move that left her "curious", and confused.

But it wasn't just the driving which went awry, so too did his approach play. "I'm obviously disappointed (with the finish)". He finished 1 over for the tournament, 16 strokes behind victor Patrick Reed and in a four-way tie for 32nd.

Brian Ellison is host of KCUR's Statehouse Blend Missouri podcast and reports on Missouri politics and government. He says lawmakers will take steps to call themselves into a special session.

Greitens' attorneys have asserted that prosecutors have failed to produce evidence that a photo exists.

"In the United States of America, you get your day in court", Greitens said. And the state House committee report has increased the possibility that impeachment proceedings will begin against the governor.

The woman said she wanted to talk to him but he asked to "take her through an exercise", for which he had her change into a white T-shirt with a cut at the top and men's pajama trousers. He made no immediate ruling.

Reaction to the Missouri House's investigation findings of Governor Greitens are pouring in from both sides of the aisle.

The House committee report notes that Greitens declined to testify before it. Some, she says, were not consensual.

Greitens is due to go to trial in St. Louis on the felony charge May 14.

The Padres had taken notice of the Rockies pitchers throwing inside in the series' previous two games, both won by the Padres. The big-hitting Arenado then threw a couple of huge punches at the backpedaling Perdomo, but didn't land anything squarely.

Upon reviewing the report from the Special Committee on Oversight, I believe that out of respect for the people of Missouri and the well- being of his family, the Governor should resign immediately.

GOP legislative leaders announced that the panel will continue its investigation and decide whether to file articles of impeachment. "The power given to the Missouri General Assembly to take disciplinary action or to remove elected officials from office is one of the most serious and consequential powers the Constitution grants the Legislature".

The report, much of which is sexually explicit, includes excerpts of lengthy testimony by the woman with whom he had an affair.

Some members of the General Assembly doubted Greitens' ability to lead under the circumstances.

She also alleged that Greitens, on a separate occasion, had slapped her when he learned that she had been sexually active with someone else.

The woman testified that she had several additional sexual encounters with Greitens, including one in June 2015 when "he slapped me across my face" after she acknowledged having slept with her husband.

A Missouri state House committee, which is majority Republican, released the graphic report Wednesday. He says it's "a political witch hunt".
