Key details in legislative report on Gov. Greitens' affair

Missouri Committee to Release Greitens Report Wednesday

The world is exploding around Missouri Governor Eric Greitens. The charge alleges Greitens didn't obtain permission before taking a nude photo of the woman with whom he was having an affair in 2015; the woman testifies about the incident in the report.

But once in his basement, Greitens taped her hands to pull-up rings, blindfolded her, started kissing her, ripped open the shirt and pulled down her trousers, the woman testified.

"I felt like he was trying to claim me", she later told lawmakers, describing the slap as "jarring" and "forceful". Asked why, after all that, she saw him on a couple of subsequent occasions that she did consider consensual, she said, "I think I just wanted to feel better about it".

The woman testified that during their last sexual encounter, on a morning a little later, Greitens "kind of smacked me and grabbed me and shoved me down on the ground". She talked about she started "uncontrollably crying". House Minority Leader Gail McCann Beatty called for the governor to resign immediately, while GOP Missouri political operatives told reporters that the committee's findings were as graphic and damaging as they feared.

House Speaker Todd Richardson (R) announced he's formed a committee to investigative the governor's invasion of privacy charge.

The report included testimony from the woman who Greitens admitted to having an affair with, as well as three other witnesses who largely corroborated what she said.

The woman testified she returned to Greitens' residence later that day on account of she had forgotten her keys. He calls the investigation a "political witch hunt". He asked her if she has exercised. The governor previously denied that he had ever blackmailed or threatened the woman.




"I felt as though that would allow me to leave", the woman's testimony reads.

Missouri Governor Eric Greitens says he's not planning to resign.

Still, Robertson said the already chilly relationship between Greitens and many of his Republican colleagues could haunt the governor.

The woman testified to the House committee that her husband had said: "I'm going to ruin this guy".

During his first year in office, Greitens issued personal attacks against state senators who went against his will on policy, called the Legislature back for two special sessions, angered senators for his role in stacking numerous boards and commissions with his appointees and, at one point, compared lawmakers to third-graders. But the prosecutor in the case says the defense "cherry picked bits and pieces" of her nine-hour deposition and the woman's attorney says the comment referred to one particular instance concerning the photo. He also pointed to his upcoming criminal trial as his saving grace.
