  • Circuit Attorney to Launch Investigation into Allegations Against Governor Greitens

The woman's ex-husband told KMOV Greitens "took a picture of my wife naked as blackmail". Al Watkins represents the man who he said, "expended significant sums of money" to make sure the story didn't go public.

Greitens, 43, revealed this information Wednesday evening after the KMOV TV station reported Wednesday night that the Missouri governor had a sexual relationship with the hairdresser in 2015 and that the woman's ex-husband claimed Greitens took nude photos of her and threatened to blackmail her if she revealed the affair.

Lawmakers across the state are reacting to Governor Eric Greitens' extramarital affair and the blackmail allegations brought against him.

The recording is a conversation between the woman and her ex-husband, who secretly recorded the conversation as he pushed her to confess to the affair.

Greitens invited the woman to his home, allegedly refusing to meet her in public because he knew "this is wrong".

Republican Sen. Rob Schaaf, a frequent Greitens critic, stopped short of suggesting he step down but said: "I don't see how he weathers this political storm". "And he used some sort of tape, I don't know what it was, and taped my hands to these rings and then put a blindfold on me".

She says she later realized he took a photo of her.

"If these allegations are true, proven true, I think he should resign".

St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kimberly Gardner on Thursday announced into the allegations against Greitens.

The letter signed by both Democrats and Republicans called the allegations "deeply disturbing" and said a swift investigation was necessary to avoid having the matter "overpower" the 2018 legislative session.

A lawyer for Greitens denied the blackmail allegations.

"I feel comfortable with that", he said. The Missouri Attorney General is investigating the Greitens administration's use of an app that automatically deletes text messages immediately after they have been read.

The St. Louis Post Dispatch and the Kansas City Star reported that they too had possession of a transcript of the surreptitious recording and had interviewed the ex-husband. An FBI spokeswoman declined comment, saying the agency's policy is to neither confirm nor deny the existence of an investigation.

"The claim that this almost three-year-old story has generated or should generate law enforcement interest is completely false", he said.

Greitens is not under criminal investigation, but the city's top prosecutor, Kim Gardner, encouraged anyone with evidence of a crime to come forward. His wife, Sheena Chestnut Greitens, is an assistant professor of political science at the University of Missouri, and a nonresident senior fellow at the Center for East Asian Policy Studies at the Brookings Institution in Washington.

The Greitens married in 2011 and have two young sons.

"It's a blessing someone from her perspective is able to lead an investigation for this woman story and this case", Butler said.

According to the ex-husband, the recording was made just days after Greitens and the woman had their first sexual encounter.
