99th Missouri General Assembly, 2nd Regular Session
January 12, 2018
The second week of the legislative session started about ethics and ended about ethics. While rumors swirled around the capitol all week, it still came as a shock when the seriousness of the allegations were reported on Wednesday night following Governor Greitens’ State of the State address. A bipartisan group of Senators signed a letter urging the Attorney General to investigate Gov. Greitens’ actions, and several lawmakers on both sides of the aisle released statements expressing concern for the allegations, the need for a thorough review of his actions, and many even called for his resignation. Greitens’ is now under criminal investigation by the St. Louis Circuit Attorney.
