Just another Dim hit piece...nothing more, nothing less.

Let's not forget, he's admitted to the affair. What he's denying is that he took a revenge porn photo of her to keep her from talking about it.

Just a few of the highlights. 


Quote:While running for governor, Greitens repeatedly touted his volunteer work with refugees in the Balkans in 1994, saying he helped children in Bosnia, where thousands amid ethnic strife following the collapse of the former Yugoslavia. He later acknowledged that most of the work was in safer, neighboring Croatia. Asked about the word choice, Greitens told The Associated Press that people recognized what happened in Bosnia and understood working with Bosnian refugees. But the choice also may have had a political advantage: Missouri has a large population of Bosnian refugees.


Quote:Greitens’ campaign for governor had access to the donor list for The Mission Continues, a veterans’ charity he founded, and raised $2 million from individuals and entities that had given the charity significant contributions. Democrats said it was the kind of insider politics that Greitens decried in his campaign, and the chairman of the state party filed an ethics complaint contending he should have disclosed the list as an in-kind contribution. Greitens initially denied using the charity’s list for fundraising, then belatedly reported it as an in-kind contribution. He paid a $100 fine.


Quote:The state attorney general’s office is reviewing Greitens’ and some of his staff’s use of a secretive app that deletes messages after they’re read. The review was announced after The Kansas City Star reported that the governor and some of his staff have Confide accounts tied to their personal cellphones. The app also prevents recipients from saving, forwarding, printing or taking screenshots of messages. Government-transparency advocates worry that use of the app could undermine open-record laws.

Why do conservatives hate transparency so much?

It happens that a young man from central Missouri whose father is a prof of econ spent a week with us last week.  I asked him once if Missouri considers itself southern. He jumped right on the denial pretty fast. Not southern. But are they not quite similar to southerners in some ways?  Perhaps I'm absurdly wrong about that. Wouldn't be the first time.

At any rate I was trying to determine if he was a conservative without having to ask him. But later he kind of proved that he is at least somewhat to the right. 

I wish this guv thing would have come up while he was here. We could have had a good discussion. Then we could have discussed Sam Brownback. Perhaps finally coming to a conclusion on whether it's best to live in MO or better to live in KS.

Missouri was a Confederate state. They're southern enough.

Okay, then, but I like the young man (28 years old and ungodly smart - he even cooks!) so I'll assume he didn't want to be thought of as backwards.
