Lawmakers Call On Greitens To Resign

Feb 23, 2018

On Thursday, a St. Louis grand jury indicted Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens on a felony charge of invasion of privacy. The Republican is accused of taking a nude photograph of a woman—with whom he has acknowledged having an affair—without her consent and transmitting it in a way it could be accessed by computer.  Two lawmakers, one Republican and one Democrat, tell us why Greitens will have difficulty governing now and why they think he should resign.

Guests:

  • Rep. Kevin Corlew, R-Kansas City; Chair, Judiciary Committee, Missouri House of Representatives
  • Rep. Greg Razer, D-Kansas City; member of Missouri House of Representatives
  • KCUR's Erica Hunzinger, editor, Harvest Public Media
