Legislature's Graphic Report On Gov. Greitens 'Beyond Disturbing'; Resignation Calls Stack Up

A woman testified Wednesday that Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens was physically aggressive and threatening toward her during a coercive sexual encounter in his basement

The governor was referring to a court filing from a criminal case in St. Louis in which his legal team released an excerpt of the woman's testimony saying she doesn't know if her belief that he took a photo with his phone was the result of a dream.

The Missouri House special investigative committee released its report on Governor Eric Greitens on Wednesday, April 11. Representative Deb Lavender called the report "graphic", and said the alleged victim is credible and Greitens should resign in the wake of the report's release.

The panel launched its probe shortly after Greitens was indicted in February on a felony invasion-of-privacy charge for taking and transmitting a nonconsensual photo of the woman in 2015, before he won the election. She talked about she had a crush on Greitens nonetheless was shocked when he ran his hand up her leg and touched her crotch with out her consent all through a March 2015 hair appointment. Greitens is accused of taking a nude photo of a woman with whom he was having an affair in 2015, without that woman's consent.

St. Louis Circuit Judge Rex Burlison on Tuesday imposed a gag order on attorneys, witnesses and other parties to the criminal case.

Burlison indicated that he had no power over state legislators, who "have their jobs and their authority", but hoped "consideration is being given to any. defendant's rights to have a fair trial in front of an impartial jury", according to a transcript released by the defense.

The woman said she was scared and started crying uncontrollably before Greitens forced her into giving him oral sex. The report says the committee does not have any photo nor any evidence that such a photo was transmitted, which is a key part of the felony charge Greitens faces.

When she told him she was angry about the photograph, he told her, "You have to understand, I'm running for office, and people will get me, and I have to have some sort of thing to protect myself", according to her testimony. "He does it and he's like, 'You're not going to be a bad girl, are you?' Tries to do it again, to which I just let it dribble out, because I didn't even want to kiss him", she testified.

The woman testified she returned to Greitens' residence later that day on account of she had forgotten her keys. She added that he later invited her to his St. Louis home whereas his partner was out of metropolis. Asked in a January interview with The Associated Press if he had ever slapped the woman, Greitens responded: "Absolutely not".

"I just spit it out".

With so much swirling around Greitens personally, Republican legislative leaders have issued assurances that they will continue with business as usual despite potential turmoil in the governor's office.
