Gov. Eric Greitens of Missouri is in the hot seat due to revealing reports of an extramarital affair.
The Republican politician is now being asked to step down from his post for the 2015 incident.
Fox News reports the following:
“Missouri’s Republican governor is the latest politician to star in his own drama: Fifty Shades of Greitens – a tawdry tale of lust, power and betrayal that has consumed state politics and led to bipartisan calls for his resignation.
Only minutes after delivering his State of the State address earlier this month, Gov. Eric Greitens was hit with an exposé about an extramarital affair he had in 2015.
The salacious report aired on St. Louis’ KMOV-TV and included an audio recording of a conversation between a woman and her then-husband – recorded secretly by the husband – in which she admits to having an affair with Greitens.
While the governor is now rejecting calls to resign, the details of that call continue to leak across the pages of Missouri newspapers, keeping the scandal front-and-center for the state’s most powerful official.”
