A Woman Has Accused The Governor Of Missouri Of Violent, Nonconsensual Sex

12 April 2018

Eric Greitens was elected governor of Missouri in 2016.

The woman testified that at Greitens' invitation she went to his home in St. Louis before work on March 21, 2015, going in through the back door.

Greitens and the woman allegedly ended the affair in October 2015, and she never saw him again, she testified.

A Missouri House committee released a report Wednesday regarding allegations of sexual assault against Gov. Eric Greitens (R), saying in the report that they believe the woman who made the allegations is credible. Afterwards, she continued, Greitens led her to his basement, where he blindfolded her and taped her hands to pull-up rings, and ripped her shirt, pulled her trousers down and took a photo without her consent.

Nikki Haley said, "At a certain point, you're either for an independent and impartial investigation, or you're not". Meanwhile, the global chemical weapons watchdog has said it will send a fact-finding team to the site in Douma.

The woman said she proceeded to give him oral sex because she thought "that would allow me to leave" and feared for her "physical self".

Scott Simpson, an attorney for the woman, said this week that Greitens has told his client on multiple occasions that he photographed her without her consent and threatened to release the image if she told anyone about their relationship.

She described another incident to the committee during which she said he smacked her, grabbed her and shoved her to the ground. A month later, she said Greitens paused while they were kissing and asked her if she had "slept" with anyone since they had started being intimate.

Greitens made the announcement ahead of the release of a report by a special investigative committee.

Inside Bo's home, the homicide detectives discovered Mills' missing glove and another part of Bo's body stashed inside the shed. Mills will face either a first, or second-degree murder charge, following the results of her mental evaluation.

The Republican governor was indicted for felony invasion of privacy in February in connection to the latter allegation.

"The House Investigative Committee's Report contains shocking, substantial, and corroborated evidence of wrongdoing by Governor Greitens".

The governor, who chose not to testify before the committee, has denied ever hitting or threatening the woman, and said everything that went on between them was consensual. He then allegedly requested if she had exercised and had her change proper right into a white T-shirt with a slit on the very best and pajama trousers. Then, she said, he spit water into her mouth. "Smearing, lying and attacking people who want to change how things are done is wrong in Washington and it's wrong in Missouri".

Greitens said in his statement it is an honor to work for the people of Missouri, and he will continue to serve the people of Missouri as their governor and work for people every day. He also pointed to his upcoming criminal trial as his saving grace. 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.
