Missouri's political landscape has been shaken by a felony charge against Republican Gov. Eric Greitens . Charges of felony invasion of privacy were announced Thursday by St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kimberly M. Gardner, who has been investigating Greitens since last month's disclosure of a 2015 extramarital affair. Greitens allegedly took a picture of his lover, who was nude and blindfolded, and then threatened to use it against her if she exposed their relationship.
A St. Louis grand jury indicted Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens on Thursday for felony invasion of privacy, possibly jeopardizing his tenure in office as legislative leaders said they'd begin an investigation. Impeachment talk began to circle the Statehouse.
