Rauner Ad Featuring Missouri Governor Will No Longer Play

Rauner Ad Featuring Missouri Governor Will No Longer Play

"A few years ago, before Eric was elected governor, there was a time when he was unfaithful in our marriage", the statement read.

Greitens posted a response to the report, which aired on Wednesday, explaining that he and his wife, Sheena, had resolved the extramarital affair years prior, and denied that any blackmail or non-consensual photography ever took place. "It was a deeply personal mistake". Eric took responsibility, and we dealt with this.

Brennan also interviews KMOV-TV reporter, Lauren Trager, who broke the story she says she had been working on for almost a year. His campaign capitalized on his military service as a Navy SEAL and his work as founder of a veterans' charity, casting himself as an outsider going up against a career politician, the state's Democratic attorney general. He has barely hidden his higher political ambitions and reserved the web address ericgreitensforpresident.com years ago. But her ex-husband provided a recording of her detailing a sexual encounter with Greitens and saying Greitens told her the photos would be released if she exposed the affair.

In a recorded phone conversation provided to KMOV, the woman said Greitens apologized after the encounter and told her he had deleted the picture. The woman did not know her then-husband was recording their conversation. After further investigation, I have chose to launch a formal investigation into the alleged actions of Governor Greitens.

"I feel the same way about the governor today than I did a month ago", Schaaf said.

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

Although the governor admitted late Wednesday to being "unfaithful" in his marriage, he strongly denied any accusation of violence or blackmail through his attorney, James Bennett.

However, a bipartisan group of senators - all frequent critics of the governor - announced they were sending a letter asking state Attorney General Josh Hawley to investigate the matter.

Even before Libla circulated his letter, the Senate's two top Democrats had called for an investigation into the blackmail allegation.

"Bruce Rauner must renounce the support of Missouri Governor Eric Greitens and promise to stop using him in ads", DGA Illinois Communications Director Sam Salustro said in a statement.

The advertisement featuring Greitens had him and the fellow Republican governors mockingly thanking Democratic House Speaker Michael Madigan for improvements in their states. Lawmakers were not scheduled to return until Tuesday. It came after St. Louis television station KMOV reported that Greitens had a sexual relationship with his former hairdresser in 2015.

Because of how fresh the report is, it's unclear how serious the consequences, if there are any, will be for Greitens. It was sent to the same account that Greitens listed on a website he used in the campaign.

She asked Greitens, whom she called by his first name, to "please consider all who are involved and the circumstances around us". "We could either stick our head in the sand in the legislature or we can move forward".

The lawyer for the ex-husband said the Federal Bureau of Investigation has contacted him several times since October 2016 about the affair. The FBI is also said to be looking into the case. An FBI spokeswoman declined comment, saying the agency's policy is to neither confirm nor deny the existence of an investigation.

"Allegations of extortion, coercion, or threats of violence must be investigated by the proper authorities".
