It is a well-known fact that the snake-handlers of Missouri (Hi, John Ascroft!) elected a gubnor to clean up the state and remove the Debbil Democrat party from the state house. “Gawd, Guns, and Gays!,” he campaigned on!
And so no one should be surprised when family values Gov. Greitens should be frog-marched out of the capitol for problems involving blackmailing his mistress during some sort of bondage sexxxy time.
“Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens, who was swept into office in 2016 with a vow to clean up a corrupt state government, was indicted and booked Thursday on a felony invasion of privacy charge for allegedly taking and transmitting a non-consensual photo of his partly-nude lover shortly before that campaign started. …
“About 3:45 p.m., on the first floor of the Carnahan Courthouse in downtown St. Louis, a Post-Dispatch reporter saw Greitens being led down a hallway by several St. Louis city deputies. Officials later confirmed Greitens had been taken into custody and then booked at the St. Louis Justice Center. …
“Greitens, a Republican, declared his innocence in a written statement, and alleged the indictment is a ‘misguided political decision’ by a ‘reckless liberal prosecutor.’”
But here’s the cream on the top, the press release from his Spok:
FOR PLANNING PURPOSES ONLY: Governor Greitens will not be able to attend the @NatlGovsAssoc meetings in Washington, DC this weekend due to an unforeseen scheduling conflict.

…and the reply from one lone wag:
Now that is a pro release, worthy of Elmira Gantry Huckabee-Sanders! https://t.co/gzzdDgfVvI
